HOW MY LIFE IS GOING

Hi guys, as usual it’s been a while since I have updated my profile. Hopefully all who are reading this are doing well. Things on my end are pretty good. I am staying incredibly busy with work, which is great. On top of being a clerk for the inmate counselor I am also teaching Ashtanga Yoga 3 times a week. Beyond that I’m in my basic workout routine and trying to keep up on bad reality TV and books. At the moment I am reading The Hunger Games and it’s intriguing. I have no update on the transfer to Boston but I know I’m getting closer. Keep your fingers cross for me, okay? Well I hope everyone’s year is going as well as can be. If you feel like writing then please feel free and I will respond. All the best, David

THE GENTLEMAN

Hello to you and this beautiful opportunity that has truly blessed me to step forth into your domain. Honestly, with me, I bring much respect upon my journey to try and cater to a new beginning of friendship as I take hold of your hand and invite you into my world of planet prison. I assure you that there’s nothing sinister about me or my invite…I truly wish for this friendship to blossom beautifully, if indeed it is created. I do understand that your time is very precious and I truly don’t intend to waste any of it. I only wish to obtain a precious sip of your time if your time can present itself available. Nothing is guaranteed throughout any friendship. I’m very outspoken so with that being said, loyalty, as well as honesty, and only hoping that it can be returned. I will never take your friendship for granted; nor do I judge humanity for pleasure because I’m a non-judgmental homo sapien who indeed is very understanding and a very good listener. So, continue reading, “Who Will Befriend The Innocent Little Boy”. (smile) The type of friendship that I seek? Are those very true to themselves before others; not those who’ll say, “I’ll stay down” and then fall off the face of the earth after a few letters or we have a slight misunderstanding or disagreement that will turn nothing into something instead of something into nothing. Well, please excuse me for allowing my cup to overflow and take up too much of your time. I do hope that you’ve enjoyed this precious sip of my time and I hope to at least gain one friend…that will make this time worth it. I go as I’ve come…sincerely, Cire Sivad

UNTITLED

Greetings. Many of the people who have written me for the first time have mentioned the documentary “Reckless Indifference,” which was centered around the case for which we (myself and co-defendants) were convicted. First, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has stopped by to offer support, even if you just wrote once. It was really cool of you to spend the time and share those sentiments. Obviously I wouldn’t expect everyone that’s passing by my profile to write me, but if this situation catches your interest and you feel strongly enough about it, you’re invited to sign the online petitions centered on our case. Each signature goes directly to the Governor’s office electronically in association with the petition in an effort to one day secure our release. This may seem like a small thing but every little bit counts and you never know, little voices can make a big noise if there’s enough of them. The petitions can be found at Care2 or with a search of “Free the Agoura 4,” or so I’m told. Thank you for your time and consideration. Wishing you all of the best. Sincerely, Jason

REHABILITATION

I’ve been gone 5 years, in some of the more violent prisons the country has to offer. I’m currently in the process of going to SuperMax -- 23/1, lockdown. I find that at all of these institutions there is no rehabilitation taking place. The term “lock them up and throw away the key” rings true. At the maximum security federal penitentiaries there’s no college courses offered. You can only get into GED classes. The administrations just wait until inmates stab each other, then lock the institution down. We come off lockdown and the same thing happens again. More stabbings, more lockdowns. Vicious cycle. I believe that if we were offered more programs, we’d have something else to focus on, besides the negative. College courses. Trades, such as masonry, electrician, etc. The fact of the matter is we have to rehabilitate ourselves, prepare ourselves to be successful in the streets. I have 4 years left, and I’m nervous. After being locked in a cage for what will be over 9 years, it’s gonna take extreme mental toughness to make it at home. I know I’m now strong enough. The sad truth is, a lot of others are not. There are over 3 million incarcerated Americans, and counting. To bring that number down, don’t just lock us up and throw away the key. What happens when you lock a dog in a cage for an extended period of time? My point exactly.

UNTITLED

To the seemingly inconsequential multitudes disillusioned into thinking your existence is but a rote routine, an endless string of meaningless coincidences bound for a futile end, I say press on! Kingdoms rise and fall with the words and actions of the vast common few. The world endures by the everyday people so quickly overlooked. Civilization is carried on the back of the dedicated, to a scheduled existence of responsibility. Life’s battles are won or lost by the stay-at-home mothers, assistants, scholars, and manual laborers. These souls bring essence to reality. From antiquity to the present era, the blood, sweat, tears, and ideas of these people encourage humanity to press on through the darkness. United we grope and stumble through endless shadow, reaching for light sought after and highly regarded by the dreamers who refuse to give in to the despair that stalks us at every bend. Continue the fight! Kicking and scratching we will not succumb to the abysmal end. We’ll press on! Smiling at the foot of the gallows of life. Laughing in the face of conformity as the noose tightens, we will continue to breathe out words of liberty and encouragement, using our words to change the tide, impacting our world ‘til life ebbs away from us. This is a cry for battle with ourselves, our existence, our realities, and our environment. So make war for the rebuilding of life and hope, no longer bent on destruction but rebirth.

TO LOVE...OR NOT?

Is it better to have fallen in love … To one day find a broken heart … Or is it better to have never loved at all? Watrickio Johnson

ARRIVING AT THE SUPERMAX

I was recently featured in an article in “The Atlantic” magazine. In the beginning of the article, which focused heavily on my current prison, the reporter said, “You don't arrive to Supermax before first obtaining a measure of infamy in the nation’s penal system.” I could only scratch my head. Me? Infamous? Surely there must be some mistake. But the description of the conditions within America's most famous prison were apt: harsh, cruel, desolate and unforgiving. I sit alone in a cell 24/7. I never talk to anyone. The guards are like sadistic children overseeing an anthill holding magnifying glasses with glee. How do I maintain my composure? Well for one, the wonderful people I've met through this website, and second, an unwavering belief that they can take my freedom, my possessions, my comfort and beat me, isolate me and mentally torture me but they can never take my dignity, grace, or hope for a better and brighter future. America's most famous prison has taught me much about the limits of human endurance, the ugly side of human nature and, best of all, has given me a clarity of mind necessary to secure a prosperous future. Many are broken by this place and I too have suffered greatly, but I've learned I am the master of my own destiny. My motto is now simple but profound: “Always Moving Forward.” The past is tragic and the present bleak but the future is ripe with endless possibilities.

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

Hey everybody I just finished reading “Fifty Shades of Grey” and thought I'd check in and update you on the latest happenings. Last night, I got into an argument with a crazy person. Get this -- he said that the reason so many Americans are overweight is because more women are using the birth control pill and estrogen from the pill is being released from their urine, flushed down the toilet, and not filtered from our water stream. So we end up drinking estrogen, which turns our bodies to fat. Well, a smarter inmate might have put on his headphones and ignored this lunatic, but I felt compelled to argue. Luckily after 10 minutes, the Stanley Cup Finals began -- go Kings-- and I had an excuse to politely tell crazy man to get lost. I believe he ended the argument with, “If you don't believe me look it up in the Bible,” which, coincidently, is how he ends all his arguments. I've been watching tons of sports. The NBA Finals has been great, and provides a good excuse to snack. I also read a book called “Miles to Go,” which I enjoyed. Another execution is coming up next month, which means another lockdown. Ugh. Well, the Boston vs. Miami game is about to start. I've got my Kool-Aid and tortilla chips ready to be consumed. Bye for now.

HELP ME BECOME A 10

I’ve a great new friend since putting up my profile a couple months ago but my heart is still open to meeting new friends and pen pals. Since I'm new to online profiles let me ask you question. On a scale of 1 to 10; one being you wouldn't write me if I was the last man on earth, 10 being you’d write me today; what do you give my profile? Now that you gave it a number, tell me what I should do to get my profile to a ten in your eyes? I would love to hear what you think, so drop me a line using one of the options offered on my profile. I will update my blog periodically and I will always share my tip of the day and my quote of the day. So, without further ado, here's my first installment. Let me know what you think! TIP OF THE DAY: The choices you make determine whether you are happy or not. The books you read, the people you network with, the actions you take; these are all choices that you make. Make the right choices and you'll have the life you desire. QUOTE OF THE DAY: "You can imprison my body, but you cannot so much as approach my ideas". ~ Leo Tolstoy
