you are found
more or less
safe and sound
serving your time
repenting for your crime
with many like you
I am proud
now with joy
I shout aloud
as you do your best
to put to rest
all the storms
of your black cloud.
you are blest
by God our Father
with an inspiring test
to use your talents
improving their choices
so that they avoid
surrounded by love
embracing you tight
like a hand in a glove
as your family and friends’
affection never ends
we are always with you
through the spirit from above.
This is a sequel to “Nobody Wants You (I Do)”
I took a chance and found my former student,
thanks to more advances of the internet.
She is serving an 8 year sentence with 2-3 to go.
She is totally sorry for her part in what happened,
and thinks someone may have slipped her something
which contributed to the accident.
Her family has NOT dis-owned her as I was fearing and she
is still very strong in her faith, both of which, are helping her
through this. I wrote her and she was very happy to hear from
me, clearing up the fears I had, via the way others I asked, had been
treating the situation. She is already doing her part to inspire youth
in the choices they make, and to avoid bad choices, as she belongs to
a group, that goes “out” many times, to do talks to schools, churches,
and other youth oriented situations. I pray deeply that when her
release does come about, that she can continue this path, back to being
a model citizen.
