She was full of despair
Life full of sadness and glum
Her addiction consumed.
She discovered hope
Every day a new beginning
To find her freedom.
The future awaits
anxious heart be still.

One of many extraordinary women who are participating
in the Poetic Justice program. Poetic Justice’s mission is to offer opportunities for
healing and growth by holding space to process trauma and rewrite personal narratives
to transform the story of incarceration.
My dear sister, Amy Janes and I are in production for an upcoming documentary on their extraordinary
efforts along with the many stories of those behind bars.
Stay tuned as it’s a testament to the power of art and healing even in the most traumatic of circumstances.
So much gratitude to Ellen Stackable + her team as well as inmates who continue to trust us with our cameras. 🙏
