by Roy Charles Henry (b. 1938)

I feel good because I’ve stopped the process of feeling bad.
I feel happy because I’ve stopped telling myself a story that’s sad.
I feel at peace because I stopped participating in the violence.
I feel free because I pushed open my cell door and walked away
from the prison that was
a creation of my own mind.
