Pen Pal Gratitude Poem
(artwork compliments of an inmate in MI)
Posted with permission from James: a inmate in AL:
The letter you sent me Filled me with aspiration Your words lifted me up With real inspiration You inspired me to look Deeper into my soul To see that life is much better With the Dharma as my goal I’m just a beginner In the Buddhism way I’m going to do my best As I live out each day Because of the Dharma I now have a new friend I’m really looking forward To the next letter you send. Thank you.
