Thursday Boys--a submission from an inmate

Thursday is just another day to most
In fact— “Almost Friday”
Here, in jail, it’s a day of hope—
The day
Strength and grace
Share one dynamic breath through Yoga

To be inspired is to live
To shine out with inspiration
Is an art
Yoga brings together those who may never be
Friends outside

Thursday is a day we are all Yogi’s
A day we share in the Joy of Living
Even if we forgot what joy was
It lives in “our room”
It breathes in us—dressed in orange and blue

In Us who many have forgotten
Yoga reminds us we are worthy
Of breath, of Life and Of Joy
