I wrote this song after visiting the largest women's prison in the country located at Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla, California. My heart was deeply stirred by many of the life stories I heard to the point where I felt the need to write a song to share with anyone who would listen.

It is a proven fact that women who are incarcerated very rarely receive any visitors. It is my prayer that we not forget our women in prison. I made a promise to not forget the last time I was inside those iron gates, listening to their heartfelt cries. Truly they are the forgotten ones...
