When I was a youngster, my mom took me to the pet store so I could learn to be responsible. I looked around until I came across a cage of guinea pigs. They were so cute, so I picked one up. This was my friend (or so I thought). Apparently the little guy would rather be back in the cage because he bit me. I screamed and tried to throw him back in the cage but in my frantic freak out I knocked the guinea pig cage over. Now there were several of these diabolical rodents scurrying all around my feet. My mind went into survival mode. I tried to climb onto the shelves that held the snake containers. I knocked two over as I managed to get to safety. Snakes were squeezing guinea pigs, guinea pigs were biting snakes, kids were crying, parents were shouting. TOTAL PANDEMONIUM! My mom stood there, arms crossed looking humiliated yet amused. Trust not the guinea pigs for they are deceitful creatures waiting for the opportunity to inflict pain on an unwilling participant. Be wary! Be afraid! Avoid! I‘m just sitting at my desk and thought I’d share a moment of my past with you on this cold and rainy night. Our pasts want to be shared, good and bad. So let’s exchange some and get to know each other. Freedom is a state of mind.

Inmate Blog Category:MAIL CALL

“Love Love Love”, so much love; I want to thank all you beautiful, gorgeous women for taking time out of your busy schedules to write me. *Appreciate it!* It really helps my time fly by and days go by faster just knowing I have some correspondence to look forward to at the end of the day when mail call occurs! Anticipation can be a killer but also a wonder! (smile) The best thing and wonderful thing about anticipation is it works both ways…do you agree? Well anyways I’m good at the moment, well the best I can be in this situation and predicament anyhow. I’m not going to say I go without bad days though (hint hint), that’s why I love and appreciate my letters. It’s always an uprising to a downfall; so for all you females out there doin your thang, “stay on your grown woman stuff and always be progressive; set goals that are reachable and accomplishable!” Well continue showing me some love through writing or JPay, whichever is to your best convenience. “But please be sure to include your address if you’re showing your love through JPay so I can show some love back". Jpay does not include your address if you do not give it to me specifically in the JPay ok. One last thing, just posted two new pictures, make sure you check them out!

Inmate Blog Category:FRIENDSHIP

"SPECIAL FRIEND” Hello to my special friend, who I hope to someday meet. I hope that you’ll take that first step and sweep me off my feet. I know what I’m looking for, someone with a good heart, wanting to make a connection, even though we’re miles apart. I have no expectations but I’m hoping for the best, wondering if there is someone out there to fill the emptiness in my chest. And when you’re feeling down, I’ll be there to pick you up. No matter what you’re going through, I’ll always show you love. And if your heart’s been broken, I’ll make sure your wounds get healed, through good times and bad times, I’ll ask you how you feel. So if you’re feeling lonely, just pick up a pad and pen, together we can build a friendship that will last until the end…..I wrote this poem hoping to open the eyes of anyone who might be going through things in their life, to realize they don’t have to be alone. Whether it is something good or bad that you’re going through, I could be there for you too, if you let me. Even though I may not be able to be there for you physically, I’ll do anything in my power to make sure I’m the friend you need. But the first step is on you, I can only hope you make the move. Anything could happen, but you’ll never know if you don’t try….Truly, One Love! Demetrio

Inmate Blog Category:CHANGE and GROWTH

The new year is here, time to slow down, enjoy the everyday things we take for granted. A child’s laughter, the smell of flowers, clouds moving across the sky, your pet begging for your attention, a loved one’s warm embrace, birds singing….I want to thank with all my heart all who wrote me and shared uplifting words…and to the mothers who wrote me, may your days be filled with joy, laughter, love, and peace. Your words meant more to me than you will ever know….I’ve signed up to speak with “at risk teens” about gangs and drugs here at the prison. I think I might be able to have a positive impact on some of these kids so I’m putting my best foot forward. I don’t want to see anyone end up where I am so I’m going to do something about it….I’m asking all who read this to please take a minute to write me, let’s talk about life or whatever is on your mind. Also I’m looking for someone who is willing to take the time to teach me about Buddhism and answer all my questions as there is no teacher here at the prison. So I am trying to find someone who doesn’t mind guiding me…oh and the “Book Guy” in Melbourne, I did not get your address, please contact me so we can talk and I can thank you….may Buddha bring you peace.

Inmate Blog Category:LIFE

Hello! If you go to my blog site,, you will read blogs of my life, how I mentor to inmates and at risk teens, and my perspective of life! As you read about crimes, money, material possessions, UN-cut criminal realities, all those things don't come close to one's freedom. Today, 1/9/2014, I sat back this morning and watched news of the coldest winter ever, high unemployment, and how Americans are struggling day after day! As bad as all that sounds, me and the other 2.3 million men and women who made mistakes, would give anything to be a member of society dealing with what is on the news daily! This is the price inmates pay for not appreciating our freedom when we had it. I get so upset cause breaking the law and the consequences is never truthfully explained or talked about in middle schools, high schools, or colleges. My reality as a Black man is no rap song, gangster movie, or urban book that so many teens and young adults can't wait to hear, read, or see! It's very real! The youth, teens, and adults, wanting to live out the criminal characters are so wrongfully glamorized in movies, music, novels, and TV shows isn't worth the 5, 10, or 25 years to life in prison!! It's time that something is done to stop so many minorities, the Blacks and Hispanics getting shot daily, coming and going to jail in prisons and even worse, ending up dead in record numbers across the country! I'm doing my part and have joined forces with a great new prison company, Special Miracles, LLC, located in Cincinnati, Ohio. They help inmates and their families with gifts, reentry for inmates, discounted services for incarcerated parents, and much, much more! I'm working with them in creating good content and services they can promote to parents with at risk children and at risk teens to help keep our youth safe and free from coming to jail and prison! If you would like to learn more about what we are doing, email me at, and also read my blogs at the email listed above! God bless! Mr. Love (smile)

Inmate Blog Category:SPIRITUALITY

I’m so excited to be on the site and for the chance to share so many things with you; poetry, songs, blogs, testimonies, and artwork, all containing blessings I experienced during my incarceration. The Hebrew word for blessed is “asre” and its definition doesn’t refer to only good things, but that we are “blessed” in that we live under the guardianship and faithful care of the Lord, no matter what the circumstance. Keeping that in mind, the first artwork I would like to share with you is something I call a “prayer doodle”. I call it this because I draw them while I’m praying, and certain Scriptures, phrases, and pictures take form as I doodle. I usually pray for a specific circumstance or person, and I’m always amazed whenever I receive confirmation from the people I pray for, or when I gain new insight into a situation. He has spoken to me many times before through these drawings. This prayer doodle, titled “Thanks and Praise” was initially made with Thanksgiving in mind. But there’s a story behind it: As I was drawing it, I was praying and fasting for a very bad situation in my cell room. The situation escalated into a violent, stressful ordeal. So imagine, as I was drawing this I had my headphones on blasting Christian radio (KLOVE and KAMB), remaining calm, peaceful, and praising God, while my roommates (seven other women), were fighting, screaming, and cussing at each other. At one point, a roommate started to verbally attack me and provoke me. But with strength that came from God alone, I was able to ignore her and not fight back, which is one of the hardest things to do in prison. People often mistake meekness for weakness. But PRAISE GOD, by keeping my peace and not retaliating, the Lord blessed me greatly and molded me more into His likeness. Most of all, it gave glory to God!!! During this trying ordeal, I felt the tangible presence of God; His comfort and love and His words encouraging me. These words came to me just as I was going through this difficult time. “Bearing your circumstances bravely--even thanking Me for them—is one of the hardest forms of praise. This sacrifice of thanksgiving rings golden-toned bells of joy throughout heavenly realms. On earth, your patient suffering sends out ripples of good tidings in ever widening circles.” This prayer doodle is the result of praising God in the midst of tribulation, giving thanks in all circumstances, and offering the sacrifice of praise. I pray you see the beauty in it, as I had experienced God’s power through it.

Inmate Blog Category:Pen Pal

10 reasons pen pals are better than boyfriends 10) A prison pen pal really does want to hear about your day. 9) Overdue for a bikini wax? Your pen pal will never know. 8) Your pen pal won't hog the blankets at night. 7) When your pen pal snores, it will not wake you up. 6) You'll never have to justify buying an expensive pair of shoes. 5) Go ahead-- wear comfy undergarments...your pen pal won't know. 4) Your pen pal won't secretly read all the texts on your phone. 3) You'll never have to meet your pen pal's parents. 2) A pen pal will never neglect you. 1) A pen pal in prison can't give you an STD or get you pregnant.

Inmate Blog Category:SOCIAL AWARENESS

Americans Empowered is now official. Its corporate charter issued by the Nevada Secretary of State to honor the memory of Adam Walsh, Megan Nicole Kanka, Jetseta Gage, Jessica Lundsford, Polly Klaas, Samantha Runnion, and thousands of others, who like them have been sexually assaulted and murdered by sexually violent predators and child killers. Be it known today the sexual violence prevention advocates like myself, Cody Ellison, Amie Zyla, Pam Lychner, Joann Issa, Rachel Thompson, and John Walsh, all share in the vision of a world where acts of sexual violence do not exist. There are powerful wealthy women in our generation who have been victimized in their youth, parents who have lost their children, and victims that today are speaking out and putting an end to the "taboo" of being a victim. These empowered men, women, and children, are changing the world for the better and anyone, anywhere can help by simply logging onto their local sex offender registry and becoming aware of the predators that live in your own neighborhood, on your own street. One out of every 5 women and one out of every 130 men in America today have been a victim. It is well-known that the majority of offenders go unreported. The reality is closer to 35% of women and 15% of men. I ask all of you to break the silence and tell someone you love. You are the stronger and more empowered. Be a role model for all of us.

Inmate Blog Category:ABOUT ME

Creating a profile… Using a limited amount of words is a very intricate feat. Don't believe me? Try it. Sum yourself up within 300 words. I'd love to read about you, so give it a shot. The following profile was the first I wrote… yet I put it aside and wrote a religious one to take its place. Both profiles are pieces of me; which is why I'm blogging this: Who am I???? A man that's down but not out… A simple, optimistic dude; far from common in today's world. A lover with a heart that's forever flowing with love, which is why I love hard and fight harder for what I love. A believer whose faith is his greatest asset, which explains my optimism. Where others doubt--I believe. Our Creator is omnipotent, so impossible isn't in my vocabulary. This ordeal has disclosed how solid I truly am as a man. Over the past 10 years, I've stared: hate, betrayal and cowardice in the face--smiling. Never breaking!!! I once read "Circumstances reveals man to himself." In here, I utilize my time: reading, writing, working out, and learning beneficial things. Reading has helped me grow into a thoughtful man. What's my purpose on this site? I am searching for a breath of fresh air, basically trying to meet a beautiful woman. Not a woman that's dazzling (only physically attractive). Oh no!!!! I suffer no illusions. Lights go dim as looks fade. Beauty isn't something or someone that is only pleasing to one's eyes; it goes beyond sight alone. That's just my opinion. Plus, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. So… what's beauty in your eyes??? I believe our beliefs define our world, so grant me a glimpse into your world by answering my question. HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!

Inmate Blog Category:REFORM

To parent or not to parent… There are roughly 2.4 million incarcerated individuals in America. On average incarcerated mothers have 1.8 children, 69% of incarcerated fathers have 1 child, 34% have 2, 36% have 3 or more. From the statistics we can deduce that 2+ million children in America are affected by incarceration. Why is it that most often it's the child(ren) whom are most strikingly afflicted by this national trend? 33% of incarcerated mothers have never visited with their child(ren). 54% of incarcerated fathers do not have a continuing relationship with their child(ren)'s mother. Because of these reasons, connections become disrupted. Children then miss out on the essentials bestowed upon them by (a) parent(s) wisdom, i.e. core values, critical thinking, problem solving skills, and traditions. This can cause children to have low self-esteem and a host of other negative issues; one that I wish to curb before their development. I believe in expanding the parenting roles and rights to the incarcerated with aid and strengthen our society. Communities could become safer, crime would lower, and this would preserve tax payers dollars. I am basing my belief off of a theory ("The Intergenial Criminality Cycle") which states "a child is seven times more likely to enter prison as an adult if they have an incarcerated parent." If the above stated there is valid than what can be done to counter its effects? I am convinced that inclusive parenting roles provided to the incarcerated would be a start if not the answer. Please share your thoughts and feelings with me.
