Inmate Blog Category:Relationships
TIME

“TIME” I’ve found it hard to commit to a relationship from here, and even the most promising friendships that could tempt my intellect to lose the fear of “loving and losing at love”, time always manages to test the authenticity of those immediate emotions that feel so good and then hurt so bad because of challenges of being incarcerated. “Real talk” but as I look into the light at the end of this journey, I also feel the hope, that not only could I allow myself to foster and value more intimately, those simple, yet tender feelings of having a real connection but also long for the responsibility that involves caring for someone special. I have done a lot of “letting go” you know, and even found myself loving at a platonic level, which was impossible for me at some point, I mean, what else could one result to, limited by time and space. I never understood until now the benefits of just being a friend, and God knows I believe in love at first sight, but delaying the gratifying feeling of letting attraction take its own course has allowed me to care for other’s “wellbeing”, instead of rewarding my basic instinctual needs…”you feel me”. But I do wonder why I’m alone. Should I be more selfish, and will I fail to establish a solid foundation because I choose to take time. Time!!! What a concept…. I hope the reader understands where I’m coming from, that time allows a man to introspect, share and grow. Emotionally matured, we can all take our relationships to their highest level. When it comes to long-lasting friendship, we best have more in common than just attraction, otherwise when faced with challenges of life, not necessarily “time”, but any crises that may call us to love and care regardless of what it is, we can say with certainty, that our love is blind, but friendship, are the eyes… Forever sincere, Jose

Inmate Blog Category:CREATIVITY
CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Since I have been incarcerated I have discovered a creative side of myself that surprised me! To help combat the sense of loneliness here, I started writing and I created ‘Joy Joy’, my flying magic carpet, ‘Morris Meanlips’, the castles royal cat, and their playful friend ‘Puffer Doo’, the baby dragon. I have completed a few already but since this is uncharted territory for me. I'd love to hear advice from anyone with experience in getting children's books published. I only have eight months remaining before my release date so my hope is that I make the most out of what I have learned. That I will be able to make an impact on our future generations by letting them know that even though we may mess up and make mistakes, we can still succeed in life. That we can achieve great things and become a positive role model to others. My dream is to get my books illustrated and published. To not only make children laugh and enrich their lives but to also bring joy to any and all who read my work. If you are interested in hearing more do not hesitate to contact me via snail mail and/or email. I can be emailed directly through accesscorrections.com by adding recipient Susie Shaw and use my inmate number 0054309 to do so.

NO ROLE MODEL BY J.C. I am not a role model/ Just an example/ Just a statistic/ Just depicted/ I am not a role model/ Predicted to roll though/ They tell me to roll over like my name is Pluto/ Seen so many hang though/ 24 parlay, burnin' in inferno/ Strange life, strange town, like Fargo/ Now the judge call me a lie/ Gave me 25 to Life/ Theyvoted for the Congressman and all they do is lie/ I swear it was the truth/ That the D.A. had no proof/ I guess that's the consequences of living in the Boot/

WRITE ME

Hello future pen pals! (smile) Here’s a few reasons why you should write: for one, I’m an honest man…What?!! Yeah Right! (smile) As unbelievable as that may sound, it’s true. I don’t like being lied to or lying to people. I believe honesty is the best policy but that doesn’t mean you always have to tell everything either. So if I don’t feel like being honest about something I won’t lie. I’ll just say I don’t want to talk about it or politely deflect the “something” but truthfully my life is an open book! Yes, I’ve made some big mistakes in my life that I regret and wish could be taken back that landed me in prison…but people do change; some for the better and some for the worse. I happen to be for the better! (smile) Don’t get me wrong…I’m no saint by any means…but I’ve cleaned up well enough that you could take me home to meet the family and still keep things interesting! (smile) LOL Another reason why you should write me is that I’m not over judgmental. You can be open and honest with me about yourself and not have to worry that I’m scrutinizing everything you say. And rest assured anything we do say I keep strictly between us. No loose lips here! (smile) ha ha. I have no room to sit around judging people. I’ve made plenty of mistakes too and I’m in prison! Shall I say anymore (smile). The number one reason why you should write me is that it doesn’t matter whether I call you friend, baby, lover, brother or sister. If I do, then I give myself 100% to you (smile). I don’t do anything half hearted and I will support, fight and stand by those I care about through everything; the good, the bad, the ugly. I can tell you this all until I’m blue in the face but ultimately it comes down to you. So I challenge you to write me and let me show you what type of man I am!...the question is: Do you Accept?

INTENTIONS

What’s up ladies and gentlemen? I’m writing this blog today to explain my intentions for starting my profile, but before I get into my blog I want to say that my picture of me wearing black Coogi army fatigue shorts is a up to date picture. It was taken July 4th, 2015. I know my photo don’t look like no jail picture but it really is. Anyways my purpose for starting my profile is to network, I’d like to meet people from Atlanta, Florida, Detroit, Chicago, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, and throughout Ohio. I do tattoos/body piercings; I’d like to befriend my pen-pals that I meet through WriteAPrisoner. Hopefully one day we could meet up (because I travel a lot) and I could give a few free tattoos, or piercings. I don’t mind giving away free artwork because I know once your friends, and other people see my work their going to want artwork from me also. With my good time and work credit, I’m only down to a few months before I get released. Although I don’t have an entire year to serve I still recently started my profile, and added a picture with this blog. I’m also going to add several pictures of my tattoo portfolio to show off my artwork soon. I’m working on getting some of my pictures sent in.

So you’re my new virtual cellie…”fresh meat!”…(smile) just kidding; seriously, it’s really not like that anymore. There are guys, when doing time gets the best of them, who have their I-don’t-give-a-____(insert preferred cussword) moments, but the violence-centric lens that television uses to portray prison life is an exaggeration of a small percentage of the negative, isolated incidents that do take place. That’s why I’m inviting you into my Texas Prison Cell (follow my blog on freeshawnali.com) to become my virtual cellie and where I will interactively express to you my inmate-perspective views on prison life, conveying also my personal reflections as a creative and therapeutic outlet for the 20-years-incarcerated, wrongfully convicted pain I’m holding inside of me. You might as well take a seat on my bunk as I have a lot on my mind to share with you. Here, as a newboot you will definitely need this (turning my fan towards you). Even in triple-digit heat, Texas doesn’t believe in coddling its convicts with something as cutting-edge, technologically advanced as air-conditioning (smile). Have you ever wanted something so bad that it hurts? Well, being I’ve been captive in prison since I was 17, so I have a running list of things I hurt/long for but what I hurt most for is my freedom. Recently I felt the fumes of freedom on my fingertips. How so? I was reviewed for parole for the first time. As expected, I didn’t make my first parole (few do) but I received only a one year set-off, so I’ll be reviewed again next year. The thing is…(visit freeshawnali.com).

SMILE

Why do we throw shade to the individuals that don’t smile? Is it because we are unhappy ourselves? So we proceed to skip past the goodness and potential that might be meant for our souls. The world describes this gesture as unapproachable or unfriendly but my optimism suggests that it could be vice-versa for the majority of us that do smile. My blog today is mainly expressed to shine some light on those brothers that are pre-judged wrongly. When you view a photo that doesn’t reveal teeth it doesn’t mean anger, intimidation etc. It stands for the pain, loss, sadness, emptiness, betrayal, hardship and most of all the freedom from being erased from society and our loved ones. So if you are on the outside looking in, how would you feel? The same rules should apply to the photos we receive from a first impression that don’t reveal happiness only style and metaphysics. My assumption defined this unfairness as conduct detrimental because it hurts us as we try our best not to be rejected. As to the readers with an open mind give us a reason to help remove that black cloud of hurtfulness by responding even if you don’t want to and then I can guarantee that prominence of a safe connection and uplifted spirit of acceptance. For the smile will always be an upside down frown. God says to never judge for you also will be judged. All photos are unpredictable, so appreciate mines. Peace.

You know what’s weird? I don’t even know you and yet I’m sitting here thinking of you, wondering who you are and what you’re doing, wishing…our worlds, our realities…could somehow merge, become one, so that I could be there with you and you here with me, simultaneously. Wouldn’t that be cool? The desire to interact and talk to you, an in-depth conversation of the minds, a compatible connection, to experience with you the mingling of our senses, sound meeting touch and sight, to explore and get to know the dynamic details of the woman in you, to remove our public masks that we wear throughout the day to reveal to each other the real you, the real me, the delicate sides of us that we show to no one else – our pain, our passion, our purpose, our personal perspectives, our, shhhh, private secrets – the sensitive, deepest things and thoughts that are on our minds, hmmm…I wonder, would you listen? Would we “click”? Would you empathize? Give me Feedback? Give me objective advice that is centered around my best interests and not in telling me what I want to hear? Would you bring out the best in me? I think you would and I would to you, in a reflective, rhythmic exchange, we would get lost in captivated conversations, our words transporting us to distant, interesting places that few too many people care to travel to these days, to the places that ancient couples ventured to romantically as they discussed the mysteries of love, life and loyalty.

Inmate Blog Category:Update
SETTING THE FACTS STRAIGHT

I want everyone to know that I am only looking for friends. I need to focus on my freedom, and a relationship will only be counter-productive to that goal. Someone commented that I am only looking for someone to give me money. This is not true. Yes, I do need someone to print stuff from the Internet for me. I am also hoping someone would be kind enough to help me get the books I need and want. But this is not why I am on this site. I need friends. If my Facebook has an update saying I need stamps, it’s because most people don’t send any when they write and expect that I’m able to afford them. If you live overseas, stamps are needed even more due to the higher postage rates. Are these requests too much to ask of others? I’m not trying to get anyone to take care of me financially. Books and printouts are a small request that helps me deal with my time. I’m the one that needs help and has to depend on others. It’s not as if I can go out and get a job to support myself. But, aside from all that, what I really need is a friend. I need people in my life that will be encouraging to me and help me get through this nightmare. I need lots of letters. Most people have no idea what it’s like in here. I can’t trust anyone in here. I have no privacy. It’s so damn noisy, and I rarely get any peace and quiet. Drama is normal in this place. And, I’m constantly homesick. I have one regular visitor. I hardly see my family except for my sister every once in a while. My mom comes on special holidays. I haven’t seen my dad and brother in so long. My nieces and nephew hardly know me. It really hurts. I do my best to stay strong. Another thing, I need people in my life that won’t judge me. I respect everyone’s religion. But, I prefer that people don’t quote verses from the Bible to me. There are so many Bible thumpers in here that like to pray out loud, quote verses, and act holier than thou, yet act like hypocrites. My spirituality is a private matter. I follow the cycles of the seasons, phase of the moon, and study everything about nature. I believe in Karma, the Three-Fold Law, and the Law of Attraction. I believe in love, family values, and respect. I love everyone for who they are, and expect to be loved for who I am. I am trying to better myself, because I don’t ever want to make the same mistakes again. I meditate daily, write in a journal, and even in a dream journal. As for my bisexuality, I need to set the record straight on that. I was not gay before coming to prison. I had a man I loved, who is no longer in my life. I wanted to have kids. I got involved with women in here out of loneliness, and I did fall in-love with women in here. My heart was broken, and I was used. I have tattoos of women’s names I regret getting and plan on getting removed when I get out. But, in reality, I’d prefer to be with a man when I go home. Though, my family and friends will be my first priority over a relationship once I gain my freedom. I have a lot of catching up to do with my loved ones. So, I hope this clears everything up for anyone new curious about writing me. I do look forward to hearing from some new friends.
