What it’s like to be a mother

“D.C.” was one of many women incarcerated at the David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center in Tulsa, but this particular prisoner took a poetry class and wrote a poem that’s published in a slim book called Poetic Justice.

She writes that being a mother is: “like sunshine sometimes. It’s a wonderful melody.” And, then, it can be “like a bad storm that roars loudly.”

D.C. concludes, “It’s beautiful music with different notes and sounds….It’s the most enchanting dance you’ll ever dance.”

I hope D.C. is reunited with her children.
