How Can I Be Fortunate?

by Landon W.

I’m unfortunate due to my incarceration
I’m now part of New York’s jail population
I won’t let this hinder me
There’s too many resources out here you see.
For all the substances I use,
there’s a drug program for this substance abuse.
If I possess healthy skills and I’m seeking work,
there’s job readiness services that I know I can work.
Education is an option, achieve knowledge that empowers you Acquiring a high school equivalency diploma is the right thing to do Eating healthy and staying in shape
Health care is another thing put on this plate
This is all I need to be fortunate in this society.
