"The Written Word Transcend Circumstances and Gender" By Charlton Earle' Jennings

Hello let me first begin by saying how much I appreciate you and the support and comments of my readers for my book “Inspirational Thoughts: Freedom of the Truth from Within,” as well as my blog posting, “The reason why I write.” Today I want to pose a couple of questions to my readers. These questions may vary in degrees of opinions among chat room conversations. But here at Reflect Truth 77, I encourage a diversity of opinions. For what is life without contrast? I am very much looking forward to what you have to say. Please feel free to comment online by chat, or email me a c/o I may also receive emails c/o I assure you I look forward to reading your comments.

Recently a friend of mine informed me that my poetry book “Inspirational Thoughts: Freedom of The Truth from Within” was previewed by some women c/o the Minnesota Women’s Prison Poetry program. This news was very interesting to me. I was told that the women loved my book of poetry and is pleased to see an incarcerated individual doing positive things and setting a good example for others to follow.

My heart was touched by hearing that they wanted to share some of their poems as well. There were two ladies who wrote impressive poems. As I read the poems, it made me analyze things from a different perspective. Sometimes I think the standards for women are seen differently in society. As an incarcerated man myself I could relate to their deeply reflective poems. One of the women’s poems depicted “the importance of music being reflected in melodies and instruments.” I perceived that she was captivated by something deeper while listening to the melodic melodies which seem to inspire a deeper connection into a song’s lyrics.

I am glad to see that incarcerated women have an avenue for positive creative release. I commend the implementation of these needed prison programs. I hope that society realizes the impact of women being disconnected from their children and society. Today with the increased number of men and women incarcerations, the children sadly receive an even shorter end of the stick in life difficulties.

To my readers I pose these questions:

Do you think that society’s morals are being more affected by the increase number of women incarcerations, and if so how? Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions online or directly with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
