Selling Self to Self

To outer appearances

She is calm and centered

Speaks candidly, with poise

To incarceration’s lessons

Enhanced patience learned

Clarity of perspective earned.

Carefully drafted responses

Genuine re-focus

Articulated and delivered

In quiet confidence.

Message employer aimed

Falls upon her own ears

Drapes clinging tendrils of hope

Upon fragmented soul.
