Today, as part of our ongoing celebration of National Poetry Month, we are featuring two pieces by Leroy Harris, an Innocence Project client who is in his 28th year of incarceration in Connecticut.
Leroy, thank you for sharing your bold and revealing work with us.

Life is an experience Filled with ups and downs Twists and turns We live We laugh We cry We experience joy And we experience pain And we share our experience With others But this experience You won’t share with me So I guess I will wait to experience for myself Death The ultimate experience Life gone by
By Leroy Harris
Beauty is what beauty does Beauty never knew what was Beauty is the heart’s delight Beauty ever shines so bright For beauty is a smile, a wink, a frown, a kiss Your heart, your soul, your tenderness Beauty is all that you are You’re beautiful to me
