SEARCH FOR REDEMPTION
Richard Brown Jr. / CSP Solano
Have the mistakes of our past devalued our worth?
We were exquisite, extremely precious at birth…
How can someone become unwanted and worthless?
When with every breath they now want to give their best…
Or destined to be discarded, thrown away like trash.
Never given a second chance to right the past.
Can we have the opening to show how we’ve grown?
Or is that no longer plausible the chance gone?
Separated, lonely the final exemption…
Can we better ourselves and search for redemption?
This poem is dedicated to the countless men and women who are serving LWOP sentences across the U.S.
NEVER GIVE UP HOPE on your search for REDEMPTION
