DR. CAROL SING
I want to take you on a journey that may alter your “mindscape.” This is a book of mental snapshots taken while people were caught in a situation not of their own choosing. Poetry provides us an avenue to share the thoughts of others in the hope of increasing understanding for what we experienced in the world of the incarcerated, along with those “outside” helping, and the suffering they endured. The emphasis is on various adaptations made to ensure mental and physical survival sometimes heroic, and about the good people who helped us along the way. These poems were written in a prison camp during the years 2015 – 2017 and then in a halfway house, during 2017.
