THE STORY:

I have never run a marathon and always said I wouldn't!!!!  But when I learned I could run and raise money for InsideOut Writers, the organization that I volunteer with, I couldn't say no.  For the past year, every Wednesday night I teach creative writing at Central Juvenile Hall in East LA to incarcerated boys ages 12-18.  What I do is a small fraction of what InsideOUT Writers does as an organization and I am proud to be a part of it.

The mission of InsideOUT Writers is to reduce the juvenile recidivism rate by providing a range of services that evolves to meet the needs of currently and formerly incarcerated youth and young adults.

Using creative writing as a catalyst for personal transformation, these young people are empowered with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully re-integrate into our communities, becoming advocates for their future. This work is changing the lives of so many. www.insideoutwriters.org

I need your help! Donate now and help me reach my fundraising goal.

 

I Wish I Could Fly Away

I wish I could walk those two front gates

Wishing I was home

Wishing I could hold my siblings in my arms

 

Wishing I could walk through those two front gates

I wish I could fly away from this wretched place

I wishing I could get away from this poisonous place

Where they put me in to fix me up but all they did was make me worse

 

I wish I could fly away from the room time, violence and gangs

I wish I could fly away from this wretched place

I wish I could hang out with my friends and play with my dog

 

I wish I could walk the streets like I used to

I wish I could walk through those two front gates

When the day comes and it shall

 

But til then my life is like a movie that was put on pause and the audience is waiting for me to push play

But til then they shall wait and those are the ones who love me

But the day will come that I will walk through those two front gates and push play on my life to continue
