“MY GALLERY”

My drawings are of course an extension of myself as all our outlets of creativity are. This is a brief explanation of the ones you see as of this post. The character with the flames coming off of his mask is from an anime series that I enjoy. I just wanted to see if I could draw it with a different edge. The portrait of that well-dressed, handsome man is supposed to be of me. It was my first try at drawing reality and it was also an attempt to give you an idea of what I look like. I promise you that I look way less cartoonish than that. I hope someday I can upgrade my drawing skills to real life subjects and objects. My “Welcome” drawing is just a simple greeting for all of you viewers. I thought it would be nice to welcome y’all with a drawing specifically for you. Hope you enjoy it.

What would life be without hard times? If it wasn’t for hard times then we as people wouldn’t experience good times. I’ve realized that it’s good to be balanced in life. I’m willing to listen to anyone cause learning doesn’t have an expiration date. You can never learn too much. I’ve done plenty wrong, now I’m ready to be plenty right and do something that I’ve never done so I can receive something I’ve never had! Please join me in my journey to happiness. God Bless everyone.

PRISON LIFE

One of the most repressive aspects I find dealing with incarceration is the lack of people with which I can have deep, meaningful, thought-provoking conversation. Books, programs, and educational TV all provide adequate mental stimulation, but isn’t it equally important to be able to engage other PEOPLE in intelligent discourse? Can we be sure we have a full understanding of things without having other people’s informed perspective to challenge our own? This is one reason I joined WriteAPrisoner.com Being college educated and having traveled extensively (to New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., North Carolina, Florida, New Jersey, Tennessee, Maryland, Canada, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Norway, Spain, Curacao, Albania, Croatia, Italy, Cape Verde, and Kuwait), I’m somewhat an anachronism in prison. I’d love to be able to converse about foreign cultures, foods, fashions, music, spiritual beliefs, etc., to be able to discuss the deleterious policies and practices in our criminal justice system, to debate on philosophical ideals, to discuss politics, history, technology, and pop culture. Unfortunately, most of my incarcerated peers are either uniformed or uninterested in such discourse. This is my dilemma. My only options are to either remain reclusive and risk becoming a social pariah (which may be counter-productive to my rehabilitation), or to indulge in frivolous banter which typically revolves around sports, drugs, celebrity gossip, and pre-prison superlatives (i.e., who once had the most money, best looking women, most expensive cars, biggest house, etc.) Neither is acceptable, so what do I do? Any suggestions?

“LIVE LIFE”

As the idea of time flies by; things change and people change and so circumstances change. So our job (as people) is to adapt to the changes, however he who doesn’t adapt to the changes, “Will simply get swallowed up and burned out within the chambers of life (Mother Nature)”. Thus meaning, “Life isn’t a game”, there is nothing new up under the sun…the present is the past and our past is “Our present”…I said; The present is the past and “Our past is our present”. So unwrap your “Present”, embrace it, and learn to love it because it is what you got…and that is; “Freedom of Will” and “Freedom of Speech” (the complete power to do as you please), what’s better than that! (smile) You see, your “Thoughts” are your “Present” and your “Words” are your “Life”…which means; that whatever you can “Utter”, you have the power to bring to life! So be mindful of your “Thoughts” and extremely selective with your “Speech”. You are what you consume; so also be mindful of that reality, be wise and select what you eat (Physically and mentally). You are also your “Company”, so select your company precisely and love yourself, “Like nobody else could ever love you”. (I’m just a down to earth individual, looking forward to meeting and corresponding with an open minded, down to earth lady (female). I’m funny, lovable, and a good listener, so don’t be afraid to reach out to me…either way, live life and love who loves you).

At 38 I’m a grampa, yeah!! My little grandson in one word “INEFFABLE”, does that make me old? I wanna be a better grandfather than I was a father but I need help, are there erudite grandmothers or grandfathers? I’m accepting all insight on this issue. I spent the summer playing softball left center, batted 3rd in the line up, fun we finished 4th. Also picked up volleyball, soccer, anything to stay busy and really it’s fun. I’ve been reading up on culture, plus a couple of months ago they hooked up cable…so History channel is my favorite, Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Ax Men… I’ve met a couple people but all of them from overseas “fine” but I wanna meet some people here in the states!! I’m very effervescent, complaisant, and down 38 months now does leave me prurient and lascivious. I am a man! I was born impavid, which leads to my blunder. I wanna meet a jocose, candid, complaisant kind of woman…but I love enigmatic women between 25-55…I’m eager to learn and explore bridge building emotions. I’m a diamond in the rough, just need a good polishing. Bring out these good things I feel in my heart but have trouble figuring out on my own!! I will accept any woman willing to invest their time, work into polishing me up. QUESTION: What is the only planet in our solar system that the sun rises in the west and sets in the east? Dogs or cats?

Life is full of surprises, some surprises must be taken with a grain of salt, others can change our lives in a joyous and wonderfully life changing way! The most recent change to my current situation is a perfect example. Recently, a new law was passed called Senate Bill 261. This bill gives youth offenders a second chance at freedom by providing a parole hearing after 15 years served. However, in order to be granted parole one must show growth, maturity and remorse from the immature state of mind all those years back. I was incarcerated at 18 years old. I was hurt mentally, emotionally and spiritually. However, family and friends never wavered in their belief in me as a person. They believed in my loving heart that was hidden under layers of hurt, pain and disappointments. Years ago my family and friends helped spark that positive light within me. I started my path towards personal growth by removing negativity from my life and working towards achievements; G.E.D., College and an array of self-help programs to help prepare in what I decided would be my life’s work – to become a youth counselor. My release date used to be 2031, however with SB 261 I can now parole next year! I can only hope I have the blessing of finding someone to share this passion of mine and build a future with – someone to connect with, starting with friendship – the building block to something beautiful that lasts.

QUESTIONS

(POEM 1) I fall to the side. I guess its fate. All I can do is sit back and wait. Ask for help? Why should I do it? Turned down so much, don’t know how I get through it? They quit me as I tried, and tried to get through! But nothing I was told was ever true. No help, no love, no one to worry. Hope it’s not the end of my story. (POEM 2) I miss you! I wish I was wrapped up in your arms! Safe from all of life’s harms. Laughing and happy around all your charms, looking at your smile all the while, as we cruz mile after mile. Burn one up, and talk about love. How ours was sent from up above. (POEM 3) I don’t want anyone to steal my mind. Don’t say do this you’ll be fine. I make my own decisions, right or wrong. I’m a “real” person, have been all along. Just cause you and all your moves are fake, never had an original thought. All yours are taught! Does not mean I wanna be like you! I’m fine being me. Always True! (POEM 4) Am I dreaming? Or am I awake? Is this real?, or is this fake? Life at stake?, or just untrue? Do I care? How about you? (POEM 5) I’ll catch you if you fall! I’ll protect you if you hit a wall! Real as real can get. Feel as deep as one can feel. Trust me not fake. I’m the real deal.

SUCCESS

“Success is often nothing more than moving from one failure to the next with undiminished enthusiasm” These words were spoken to me during this incarceration of excruciating circumstances, which is hands down the worst part of my life. I was hopeless, powerless, without focus, and days away from throwing in the towel. So it had to be an act of God to not only send these words but also allow them to register in the manner in which they did. That statement told me that I could overcome. That I could not only get up but also move forward in life. I accepted responsibility for the harm I caused myself and others and also birthed the determination that said I didn’t have to be or become what my situation said I was going to be. I guess life begins at whatever point you choose to start living. I’m committed and determined to live! My sole purpose of writing this blog is to encourage whoever reads it that as long as we have right now and the hope of tomorrow we have the key ingredients to make our situations better. We just have to adopt this attitude! No matter what your situation is; the only mistake you can’t overcome is one you refuse to learn from. Remember that life begins when you do! I would love to hear from you so please feel free to write, message or JPay me. Roscoe

RANDOM UPDATE

Random Update In March 2015 went back to county jail for a few month after the judge granted my request for DNA testing to prove my innocence (Texas leads the nation in wrongful convictions)…Currently still waiting on results. My retained attorney flew in to see me November 6, 2015 and my freedom is looking very good in the near future and expect to be back in county jail in about a year or less. I have met only two real people here on WAP. Everyone else was playing games, looking for short term friendship, and a lot of people were fake. I got a lot of return to sender from people who emailed via WAP. So I shy away from the email kind of Jpay or physically mailing a letter seemed more real. My family support is amazing and will have no struggles financially once released and moving on with life with no hardships. Just remember not every person in prison is a bad person. Some do not deserve to be here, and some are innocent. Nobody is perfect. I learned a long time ago life is unfair but to make the best out of a bad situation and keep my head up, stay positive and away from the negative atmosphere here. Just wanna keep my mind in the free world because soon I will be home. So what’s up? I promise I don’t bit. LOL

Hey, what’s up everyone and to all those who have taken the time to read my page…thank you (smile). It feels as if I’ve been cooped up in my cell, cut off from reality for such a long time…it feels good to at least of had the opportunity to correspond with a beautiful person such as yourself…So many people tend to overlook men in my situation without realizing they’re throwing away a chance to build a friendship with a unique person that can be worth all the time and effort. All I’m asking is that you put all preconceived notions, skepticism, and stereotypes to the side and not judge me until you’ve given yourself the chance to get to know me (smile). Truthfully…I was somewhat reluctant to submit these words because it seems society is so judgmental and critical of men in my current situation that at times it appears more convenient to spend my time caught up in the stagnant monotony of prison life, rather than grabbing hold of the opportunity to nurture a worthwhile relationship with a beautiful person who is willing to spend time with me benefitting from its growth while we learn of one another. I pray these words produce thoughts of consideration and improved insight, inspiring you to share with me and others the beautiful spirit God has blessed you with…til pen meets paper…hope to hear from you soon (smile).
