A Poem by Ladaro

Ladaro has been an inmate since he was 16 years old and is now in his mid twenties.
He gave us permission to print this poem:

No More Rain
Battle scars reigh supreme, as rebellions sing
Upon the shores of sand, within a distant land
Hearts beat strong
Blood, sweat and tears
These are the songs
That we cry throughout the years
There is no fear, for we know our fate
Victory is here; it's never too late
Swells grow high, blinding the sky
Currents pull us back, but we must continue to strive
Our destiny is to achieve, to overcome the storms
Leaders like us believe, that we are beyond the norm
So pick up you sword, and plunge it into the waters
So that we may protect our mothers, sisters and daughters
From the tides of destruction
Corruption and pain
Destroy the clouds and there will be no more rain.

Artists such as Ladaro could be of a great benefit to society. Other inmates have their own contributions to make. All it takes is to get true rehabilitation done and acknowledged so they can again be free as they should be.

The Way to Happiness Course

"I have always blamed others for my problems, but there comes a time in your life where you have to take a look inside yourself and figure out "Who you really are?" What is your purpose? How can I change my life? Who holds the answers to your questions?

"A friend shares with me a course he was taking and what it was doing for him. It caught my attention so I started to take the course. After the first few lessons, I realized that there are people who care about my happiness and my well being. My course instructor has been instrumental in continuing to lift up my spirits as I faced my daily struggles. It has kept me focused on the road towards my happiness.

"I have learned through this course by success is: Simply understanding changes concerning environment, society and self. The solution in making a change within your life is knowing what your success is. You have to do what is best for you. Stop trying to live or please others and start taking care of yourself. Get your life in order first, then you will be ready to reach out and help others. Only you can make that first step towards change. Make a difference in your life. I'm making a difference in mine."

Learning Improvement Course

"The Learning Improvement Course has helped me understand how to overcome the barriers that were blocking my way to successful learning. I've learned to identify these barriers and how to improve my study habits.

"I'm now able to better comprehend what I read and find that studying can actually be a more enjoyable and successful experience once you know how. The techniques I've learned in this course have been very useful to me in the college courses I am taking today and will be something I use for the rest of my life."

Successful Parenting Course

"In completing the Successful Parenting course I learned how to bring out the best in a child. I believe I can raise a child who is willing to contribute to his family and become a valued member of society.

"By applying understanding, patience and using the knowledge and techniques taught in this course to children, raising a child that is happy, healthy, loving and productive will be a joyful experience.

"Additionally, during the course I was able to spot problems that occurred in my own childhood which if my parents would have applied to me, my life would have changed considerably and I would have been a better person.

"I look forward to being able to use this knowledge when needed."

- S. C., Corcoran State Prison, CA
