NOT-SO-FAST PACED LIFESTYLE

You might see the life of a prisoner and wonder, what's lifelike without high-speed Internet? I'd say that my personality is introverted so living without social media as easy for me. The part that I miss the most about the Internet is ordering pizza or Chinese food delivery. Yup, that part! It takes some getting used to, to go from a fast-paced lifestyle to this present stuff. Every day and here is like another long wait at the DMV. After developing the patience to be resilient and the situation, I think not having the Internet isn't as difficult as one might imagine. They say that slow-motion is better than no motion. What's most difficult to live without in prison is love. The lack of love can make a prisoner go mad. Having faith in God helps a lot, but everybody needs somebody sometimes (sort of like the Western Union commercial)... With that said, I'm gone

THOUGHT AND CHARACTER

Understanding and acknowledging the power of thought and the effect that it has on our character, we embrace that we are the master of thought and molder of character, the maker and shaper of condition, environment and destiny. Act is the blossom of thought, joy and suffering are its fruits; thus do we garner in the sweet and bitter fruitage of our own husbandry. Thought in the mind has made us what we are, by thought we wrought and built. If our mind has evil thought, pain comes on us as comes the wheel of the ox behind. If one endures in purity of thought, joy follows us as our own shadow. Only by much searching and mining are gold and diamonds obtained and we can find every truth connected with our being if we dig deep into the mind of our soul. If we will watch, control and alter our thoughts tracing our effects upon our self, upon others and upon our life and circumstances; if we link cause and effect by patience and practice and investigation, utilizing his every experience, even to the most trivial, as a means of obtaining that knowledge of himself. In this direction, as in no other, is the law absolute that, “They seeketh, they findeth; and to them that knocketh it shall be opened”. For only by patience, practice and ceaseless importunity can a man enter the door of the temple of knowledge.

Inmate Blog Category:My Innocence


*CAUTION* Read at your own risk!!! You will uncover an injustice…Then, what will you do??? In March 1992 I was the last known to be seen with a friend of mine. In 1994 remains were found. In 1997 I was given a Life Sentence for Murder. I was indicted 3 separate times for the murder. The 1st 2 indictments were pretty much the same, “death caused by a firearm”. Except the 2nd indictment did not include investigating officer’s names. They were fired from the police department due to their negligence and misconduct in the case and others. My expert witness, forensic pathologist, examined pictures of the body and said she could not tell anyone had been shot. A special hearing was held, judge grants motions for the body to be exhumed and investigated. After this I’m indicted a 3rd time with the clause that states “matter and means unknown”. Don’t know cause of death, but I did it. Before trial my lawyer refuses to pay for my expert witness. The body was never exhumed and investigated, nor did I have my expert witness at trial. There was no gun, or bullet, nor any type of exit wound. There was a test done for bullet fragments, test was “inconclusive”. I was found guilty of murder with a firearm. “B.S.” -testified that he and I drove around in the car. The car was fingerprinted…He also stated I threw the purse in a pond, by the house. He reports this about six months later. The person that owned the land the pond was on testified that nobody could have thrown the purse from the road. As “B” stated, it was also noted the purse did not have water damage. Probably that purse had not been in the pond all the time. He also told officers where to look for the remains. Can someone please explain why he was not investigated??? Next expert did dirt analysis on dirt in tires and under car- testimony “car had not been to either of those areas”. I was at a party with several people that night, wearing white pants/shirt. Everyone wrote statements that I didn’t act, nor appear different, or did not have any blood or marks on me. “AR”- statement claimed that her father was cheating on her mom with another woman. That he came home on the night in question with blood on clothes and scratches on arm. “K”- boyfriend had made statements while in prison that when he got out he would kill her, released in March, 1992. There were other people that admitted to the murder. A reverse speech analysis was done on me- conclusion: I did not commit the crime”. There were several boxes of evidence not properly investigated. All of the investigating officers were fired from the police department for negligence and misconduct. These are just some of the items discovered during my lawyer’s scandalous performance. I can only wonder when it would come to light…If someone would truly investigate this ????

FIVE THINGS

Five things I took for granted… I have been in prison for a little over seven years. It has been a very long road. In three years, I will be walking out the prison gate as a free man. There are many things I took for granted while I was free. The following is the top five things I took for granted. 1. Spending time with family: prison made me cherish visits, phone calls, and letters. 2. Food: eating when and what I want. A fresh salad, juicy steak, pizza, or a bowl of soup sound very good. 3. Sleep: sleeping in a dark, quiet room on a warm, comfortable bed. 4. Outdoors: going for a walk, camping, fishing, and sightseeing. 5. Relationships: giving and receiving love and affection. Having a deep, meaningful connection. There you have it. The top five things I took for granted when I was free. This is just five of a very long list. I hope this gives you some insight on my life. If you'd like to discuss this, or anything else, write to me! You can also go to www.gettingout.com and send me a message. I hope to your from you soon.

NEW TO BLOGGING

I just now found out about blogging and it's the coolest thing, it's like tweeting from prison! Who would've thought I could do this from in here?! Honestly, I'm not entirely sure how this works, so I'll give it my best. First things first, I'm terrified of Trump! Man, all I want is the world to step into from these gates, and I'm not so sure there's going to be a brick on top of another when my time comes. I don't know much about politics and so I'm left trusting the votes of our nation, dad-gum people! I hope you all know what you're doing… As far as I can see, this world is spinning out of control, what the heck is going on out there? I've been judged already so I can speak openly... where is the respect and love for one another? What happened to the friendly wave without there being a gun in your hand? What happened to the good old country a** whoopin' when someone puts hits on your lady, or cuts you off on the highway? What? A swift kick in the butt is too old fashion for you? That's why you all got app's to deliver your groceries to ya, so you don't get shot up for trying to pick up some milk! Clueless we are sometimes of our liberties, come spend the night with me, you'll be begging to get out and be that citizen we wish right now all society would be. Call me crazy but I feel the stress lifting off the shoulders, this is like therapy, forget eating a snickers, blog people, blog! Who needs Dr. Phil?! So let me get this straight, blogging is basically hearing my views, complaints, & opinions? This is for people who have no job or just like talking a whole lot right? Count me in! Now I won't go to the hole for expressing myself. Well I'll leave this one last thing for you all, hold your loved ones close, and let them know you love them, and go enjoy a sunset.

BLOGGING

That's right, my blog… A friend once told me that with an attitude like mine, I have the ability to be anyone I wanted to be. How inspiring is that? (Applause) It takes tremendous effort to work around the clock and chase our dreams. I mean, is it every day we wake up invigorated enough to say to ourselves, today I'm going to be a success?… Granted there are bound to be bumps in the road shaped haphazardly to trip us up, but with enough patience and courage, we can crush those types of betrayal underfoot. I am an individual that blatantly contradicts myself. It's like I have this seemingly insane way of closing a ginormous gap that would have normally lead to an extravagant night, complemented with a spectacular woman on a "get away, not a hang out", where we vibe the night away, drumming our bodies to classic techno at a nighttime performance, dancing with bubbles and LED lights, creating an unforgettable strobe of illuminated emotion, right before that desk, suit and tie a job that very same morning. I have lived an estranged life that has unfortunately brought me to prison where all I do is dream… I'd give anything to be a freelance journalist. To the woman who inspired me, you're a doll...(Cheers) For those of you that feel encouraged to correspond with me, I have two questions… 1. What inspires you? 2. Who do you want to be? M. Reyes

RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE

There is so much prejudice by others who don't take the time to understand another person's religion. Ignorance creates fear, and fear causes people to do hurtful and irrational things to other people. We all are human beings. We might have bodies in different shapes and sizes. We might have different taste in music, politics, came from different backgrounds, and have different religious views. But within us, we all bleed the same, and we are all spirits in a collective community. When one person does something it affects everyone. We have to live in harmony and not with bigotry. Regardless of what another person believes, each person deserves to live in peace. Mostly every religion believes that their religion is the one true religion. Throughout the ages, wars have been waged for a person's religious beliefs. These beliefs have been ingrained in people since childhood, and some found new paths. But no one can know for sure whose religion is the correct one, because none of us were there from the beginning of time. We only know what was passed down to us, and even that can't be verified. Not until you pass from this earthly life and find out what truly lies beyond this present existence of ours will you find out the truth. It doesn't matter if you are a Christian, Native American, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Wiccan, Odinist, Protestant, Catholic, etc. we are all responsible for our own soul. Just because someone doesn't believe the same thing as you doesn't mean they deserve to be treated with disrespect or hatred. Being a different religion isn't a contagious disease you can catch for just being around that person. Religion is a PERSONAL matter, not something to be PUBLICLY ostracized for. Regardless of what a person believes, we should all have religious tolerance. Religious tolerance doesn't mean you accept or believe the other persons viewpoint. It just means that you tolerate that the other person believes differently and that you accept them for who they are. That means treating others with love and not hatred. It means not bashing their beliefs. Because trust and believe, just as you have opposing opinions and arguments for why someone else's religion is wrong, they have their own arguments for why your religion is wrong as well. Harassing someone for their belief is a crime as well. Everyone has emotions and feelings. When you harass someone for the way they believe that causes disharmony between individuals and within a community. Attacking someone whether by verbal insults, fighting words, physically, etc., for the way they believe is an attack on a persons identity. No one should have to live with the fear that someone will judge them or treat them differently for the way they believe. Just think if it was your mother, daughter, sister, brother, father, son, friend, etc. would you want someone to bully them, or harm them for the way they believe? Verbal abuse toward someone, and calling them demon, or saying their religion is fake, and making them cry because you're biased towards them and their religion is still a HATE CRIME. This type of crime has a deep psychological effect on the victim of religious insults. It causes depression, anxiety, and can even lead to suicide or violence towards others. Religion should bring people together with love. The very doctrine you preach shouldn't be used as a tool to create disharmony among others. Don't judge lest you be judged accordingly. Do what you will as long as it harms none. Wouldn't you rather live in a world where everyone is kind to one another, and you treat your neighbor the way you want to be treated? Let us all coexist with one another in a world with peace, love, and understanding. Please show religious tolerance towards others.

THE ONE

There are moments I find myself examining certain people’s relationships wondering if they have the patience, maturity, or selflessness to make the relationship work. Asking oneself if it is by coincidence for two people to meet, or experience love at first sight, or is it all predestined. There's a massive side of me that believes everything does happen for a reason and we all have a soulmate out there somewhere. Some people believe otherwise and are comfortable being alone. Then get pulled into their routines, hobbies, or circumstances, distracting themselves and preventing the opportunity for destiny to connect us with our significant other. At moments, I find myself so occupied or distracted in my cell for days/weeks drawing, painting, writing, exercising, researching, but then the realization of a special lady being out there searching for a gentleman like me comes to mind, and this is the reason for me writing these intimate thoughts and ideas, wishing for my potential soulmate to read them. I want to believe, and to live my life with faith, refusing to be hopeless even though I'm a convict with a nickname like Mr. Whacko. There's a warmer side that cannot be made cold by my unfortunate circumstances. It is my soul that seeks to quench a spiritual thirst which cannot be dissolved nor subdued by this prison. I invite you to write me and share your thoughts and ideas. Song dedication "Stand By Me" by Prince Royce...

Hello There! It’s me again. I just wanted to explain a couple of issues the viewers might not be aware of. When you look at my current address and decide to write me, please include a forward address. I receive jpay’s I can’t respond to and it’s extremely aggravating because there’s nothing I can do. I don’t want people to think I’m being mean by not responding. But there’s nothing I can do unless you all send me an address…Texas prisons are the last to respond to anything helping or concerning an inmate. We do not have access to the internet. I will always respond, if I don’t that means I didn’t get it. I’m very much appreciative of all mail. Even if we’re miles away!! If I had a flying squirrel I would strap her down to a human slingshot with my letter in her mouth! Maybe it’ll make things a little faster. LOL Since I’m starting a blog I can give people a good understanding about what their family members, friends, and lovers are going through. Hopefully I can mend broken hearts and families… (“Hurt People, Hurt People”)!! Meaning when someone is going through something they can’t express and don’t know how to, they unconsciously lash out on others and push even the ones they deeply love away. This happens after being so untrustworthy towards people thinking everyone has a hidden agenda. But by identifying the problem you can start the healing process…More next entry.
