When Life is the Way We Want

Tonight, one of the homeless ladies at the shelter I intern at asked me if I could find a table for the shelter.  When I asked her why she said because she liked to draw and needed a place to do her sketches. I asked her if I could see her art and she pulled out all these gorgeous sketches. She said she learned to draw while she was in prison and that it was a gift from God.  Here is one of the things she wrote.  She said, “I was in prison so you can understand the tone of the poem.”
