Upon having many conversations with different ladies a few things stick out. Most have not had any structure in their life. They don't have the basic skills to even live on their own successfully. The things we take for granted they treasure. In some ways being locked up is a relief, why would I say that? Because it's a chance to get face to face with their Maker. Let me give you an example.
I've had the pleasure of talking to a young lady about her many times being incarcerated. She is mid-twenties and never knew or had any thoughts concerning Christianity. As a matter of fact she would "bully" the Christians she did meet being locked-up. But God has a way of bringing you to your wits end, to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. This is what she wrote...
"The Monster Within"
My friends, my family, myself respect is gone; I never Sleep I'm up all night long, I "shake" all my sorrows away, I know not of God what can I say. The smoke I inhale makes my body so numb, the dirty rotten devil has me under his thumb. I feel nothing good in my heart, my world is upside down and falling apart. Oh why wont you Lord answer my screams and prayers, please come to me and dry all my tears. I've smoked this dope for so many years, my mind is consumed with nothing but fears. The paranoia and voices inside, Oh please God take me off of this roller coaster ride. The guilt and the shame that come along with my despair, take my cold bitter heart and give it some repair. Let me feel You in my presence so I know that You are there. Give me back my life and my soul will You spare. Let me take all my worries and hang them on the cross. For Your life Jesus was the only One that was cost. The monster I consume devours my flesh. It makes me do evil things and I never get no rest. My every thought is revolved around dope, the devil has my spirit tide up with a rope. I struggle, Oh Lord to just break free, to get back to normal and finally be me. Hear this prayer from the monster in me. Because if you don't only darkness lies within. Heaven, oh no there will be no hope. If You let me be destroyed by this drug called dope.
