Somewhat Of A Thinker

San Quentin State Prison

––

I am simply quiet and somewhat of a thinker

I wonder at times what people perceive of me

I hear the sounds of the strange environment I’m in

I see many people come and go

I do not want to be forgotten

 

I am simply quiet and somewhat of a thinker

I try to visualize my life

I feel the pain I have caused

I taste the food on my spoon and wish it was home cooked

I worry about things I can’t control

I cry because I miss the outside world

 

I am simply quiet and somewhat of a thinker

I understand I did wrong

I say we must learn from our mistakes

I dream of one day being the best I can be

I try because I can’t give up

I hope to one day to lead by example

 

I am simply quiet and somewhat of a thinker
