The name is “Phil”, but I prefer to be called “Psalms” (short for Blacc Psalms which is my music name). I’m a unique individual mind, body and soul wise that gets a kick out of being different… To be a force unreplaceable in someone’s life brings me a joy that’s hard to explain, but “selfless” is an understatement! (Even at my worst, I still tend to put others before me in hopes they’ll see I’m a “loyalty over everything” kind of guy, and not the me-me-me type…) I’m an abnormal human being that “God” blessed with 2 pairs of ears…(Oh, you wondering huh? lol) Well, not only is 1 pair on side of my head, but also it’s 1 pair on my heart. “Don’t laugh”. But I’m serious…I have a listening capacity so broad that it’s hard to just hear! (You know the “in 1 ear and out the other” saying), because I’m subconsciously bound to listen due to I hate being repeated to. My mom called it disrespect when she had to repeat herself to me and in return at a young age it hurt to have to repeat myself for gifts on Dec. 25th or my birthdays, so I learned the importance of “paying attention!”…With that said, “I’m not for skipping hearts…that’s your hearts job when meeting mine! :) “Laid back” is my demeanor, but I got that “T.I. ft. Rhianna” (LIVE YOUR LIFE) song as my way of living! Surely I can surprise the term surprise and still get the reaction of gifts wrapped…My perfectionist attitude always effect people in or as Rhianna called it “Love on the Brain”, lol. “Understanding” and values from my perspective. My smile is the next best thing to a morning sunrise and silent “thank you’s” after passion-pain- and pleasure shared by lovers. Lmao- (got cha!) Ok, enough laughs for now! Look, I know I’m in the toughest fight of my 28 years, but I care less for stressing and worrying over it. Trust the whole globe knows that “USA” is the biggest criminal and crookednest criminal and crookedest criminal, so I ain’t here for empathy or sympathy. I’m a big boy and a fighter well determined to WIN my #failproof #appeals. Plus God got me!! Though I came here for a friend that doesn’t mind commitment of “staying”. Some guys think the 3 words “I LOVE YOU” are the most powerful, but honest the 4 words “I’m here to stay” is the most powerful to me that any homie, lover, or friend can say. I cherish the “unreplaceable”, so if you know you (the one reading) can’t be replaced, then I got a respect, righteousness, loyalty, and friendship I wanna show and give if you don’t mind… I know “real” ain’t the trend right now, but it’s the only way I know how to be!) Psalms

FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND PEN PALS

Visits are an amazing time. For those couple of hours it feels like you are not locked up. You forget about all the stress, problems, and constant bickering from the laws. In visitation you talk about the old time, present, and what you want to do in the future once released. There are laughs, smiles, and tears of joy. And at that moment you realize the sacrifice you made to lose all that’s precious to you in a blink of an eye. Yes, we are in here doing time but those who support us are also doing time with us. Families take time out of their busy schedule to write, send pics, and visit their loved ones. And it’s not always families; its friends and pen-pals also. All of what y’all do give us hope. We have something to look forward to. So, no matter if you’re family, friend or pen-pal, keep doing what you’re doing cause y’all letters, pics, visits, and support brightens our lives where there is darkness. WE can never repay y’all for what you are doing to help us the best you can, but we can show y’all how much we appreciate it. So no matter if you are family, friend, or pen-pal, keep the support coming cause it sure makes us feel special.

CASE# (1-15-CV-042-RP)

I was wrongly convicted and sentenced in 2010, March 10th. I was first incarcerated in 2003, October 7th. I awaited trial for seven years before finally going. My lawyer was campaigning for a judge seat during my Capital Murder trial and chose not to set my trial off until after the campaigning. For the first 10 months of me being incarcerated I had no lawyer on my case. My two lawyers at trial came on 10 months after my incarceration’s. I have (Martinez v. Ryan) and (Trevino v. Thaler) Issues. I am at the Federal level in my appeal process. I also have an (Atkins v. Virginia, 536 U.S. 304, and Hall v. Florida, 572 U.S.) I’m seeking Pro-bono representation and would request that a law firm that is specializing in the two categories contact me at the site (www.jpay.com) or the physical address of the unit. Thank you for your time. My life is at stake and I do not want to die for a crime I did not commit. Please help. If you would like to view the full legal pages go to: (dina@.minutesbeforesix.com).

How can you get up when you have been knocked down by your problems? What can you do when all seems lost? Have you ever wondered why is it that some people manage to turn their problem into possibilities and some seem to grow through tough times and learn from their tough times and overcome obstacles?
My dear friends, always use your setbacks as a stepping stone on the path to success, happiness and hope, because your failure is not fatal, your problem has a limited life span.
Failure is never the final and success is never the ending; success is a journey not a destination. It’s easier to move from failure to success than it is from excuses to success. Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. Always surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher. And in order for one to succeed, he or she must know what he is doing, like what he or she is doing, because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
My dearest friend, time is your most valuable resource, until and unless it is managed effectively, nothing else can be.

CHANGING

I'm currently doing a very intense program called the Transition Unit. It is a 22 week program that once I complete will allow me to take SAP and MRT at the same time. Both give me 90 days good time that comes off the end of my sentence. I'm going up for parole in March 2018. I'm focusing on bettering myself so I never come back to prison again. Since coming to prison I have changed my views on life and have realized life is too short to waste time in prison. I have also realized how wrong I was living and have changed my mentality. I look forward to living a more honest and productive lifestyle. I want to be a positive influence to everyone around me and an asset to my community. I know I will have to change the people I allow around me. Lay with dogs, you get to fleas and fleas bite. I'm not a big fan of being bitten.

The universe always finds a way to put us in the place we need to be, mentally or physically. Being incarcerated I have no control over where I live, who my celly is, or what time I eat, etc. How things tend to happen, was it a coincidence? Was it random? Knowing the routine of how things are run, I must know when to move and make things happen. I am very observant; I analyze everything that happens with me or to me, whether the good or bad. I analyze other situations I see or hear about, as long as I know details. I'm careful with how I break it down and rebuild it. Things aren't always how they appear. So I tread lightly because I know I can come to a wrong conclusion and that can be very devastating. To have the chance to take control of the situation or to take the chance of an opportunity when the perfect timing presents itself, can be very confusing and nervy, and it dealing with someone sometimes it's hard not to be impertinently bold. So when we come to a conclusion after our physical moment, either we end up with a severe consequence or we proceed in a direction we know is beneficial; it’s auspicious. What do we do? Do we sit and wait for help? Do we advance off of what benefits we just gained? We analyze the whole situation, break it down, rebuild, we take control, and we take the chance timing gives us. It's all routine, follow it. Remember, things aren't always how they appear, so tread lightly.

MORE ABOUT ME

My first name is Little John, two words. Most of my friends call me ‘Lu’. I was embarrassed about my name, for a long time: I would fib to people telling them I was named after my father. Since he was not a part of my life, no one would find out. The truth is, I was named after my Mom’s favorite person, John Wayne, and his son, Patrick. I also fib about my age because I do not feel my age. My heart, soul, and desires, are forever young. Those are the only things, I have fibbed about. I would rather not talk about something then tell a fib. I have added a drawing of two of my tattoos, and the three Runes that I use the most, in here. Of course, the originals are better. The Gay boy-lover symbol, was my very first tattoo, and of course, has a funny story behind it. ‘Algiz’ is the tope Rune; I use it for strength, and protection. ‘Wunjo’ is the ‘P’ looking Rune; I use it to send love to others. ‘Eros’ is the Rune with the Greek Epsilon and heart of Eros; I use it to give thanks, and to remind myself that, not only does love know no roles, but with true love, anything is possible. Of course they have other uses. Thanks for reading more about me! I am at my word limit, so I will send another entry soon!

DEFINING YOUR PASSION

How do you define “Your Passion”? I’ve been thinking a lot about this question. Yet I’m not quite sure how to arrive at the answer. Your thoughts and feedback on this subject would be greatly appreciated. As an artist, one of my goals is to express myself hoping it resonates with someone. Is that passion? Or is passion merely the things we enjoy in life? My go-to answer used to be, “I have a passion for fashion”. It rhymes, it’s cute, and yes- I really enjoy fashion. However, when I think of the movie- The Passion of Christ, I see the word used differently. Passion connects with pain. The question hangs in the air. What are you willing to suffer for? How bad do you really want this? Take my passion for fashion…Am I willing to suffer the hours it takes to make my design a reality? Or the songs that I write…What if the producer wants me to sing it again and again… and again? Sure, I’d like to write books, but the editors critiques can cut deep-pouring out red ink. Is this worth it? Maybe passion is that one thing you won’t give up on despite rejection, despite haters, despite the odds. It’s this fire that won’t go out even in the rain. Maybe passion is just something that can’t be explained. What do you think? I’m really interested in hearing your response. How do you define your passion?

LEARNING PAINS

Often I found myself gazing off in the distance. “How did I allow myself in relationships with those who pretended to have my best interest at heart?” Smiling faces masked hidden agendas, impure motives, mixed with deception or betrayal. Through my “learning pains” birthed a positive theory of love…Love is respect, love is trust, commitment. Love is wanting to be with that person “only that person”. Love is admiring your partner’s strengths; accepting their weakness. Love is having an argument, talking out a solution. Love is being angry, then making up. Love is having patience when your mate gets on your nerves. Love is being wrong, not being afraid to say, “I was wrong, I apologize”. Love is sharing happiness, sorrow, anger, frustration, passion, ecstasy. Love is consideration, thoughtfulness. It is making a mistake, learning from it. I’ve learned that it’s expressing your true feelings verbally as well as physically. It isn’t necessarily physical, it is mentally. It’s knowing the difference between that and lust. It is making sacrifices, compromising. It is taking responsibility for your actions, whether it’s good or bad. Love is unconditional, it has no boundaries, it knows no limits. It’s quality time spent with that special someone, missing them later. It’s a shoulder to cry on, to laugh with, or to cuddle with. It’s a listening ear just when you need to talk, it is being friends as well as lovers. It is forgiveness, but not stupidity. It’s not blind. Love is knowing yourself as well as your partner. It is agreeing to disagree. It has its good times, bad times. Love is not a fairy tale. It’s a reality. Love is believing, having faith in your partner. It is team work, not one side. It’s precious and rare…Learning pains, share yours??

Inmate Blog Category:TRANSISTION
PRISON

The relevancy of life after prison is an ever present thought for anyone who is doing time. Constant change in family, friends, and relationships, as well as others thoughts and actions constrict, add to, as well as take away from planning and strategizing life after prison. The transition can be many of things; strenuous, tedious, demanding, comfortable, easy, confident, etc. Death plays a major role in the scheme of things as well. Although it’s a part of life, it conjures up a mass of emotions, feelings, and decisions, to make. Another issue we face while incarcerated is the desertion and noncompliance of people who vowed to be a part of the umbilical cord of support created in lieu of being incarcerated. With the feeling of abandonment, a wide array of ex-offenders prior to, and after, release experience a state of depression which over time leads to a breach and/or disconnect of communication from the very means of support that was sought out initially. The value of peace and peace of mind is priceless. In a place where only the strong survive, not in the physical but the mental sense, growth is not only prominent and necessary, it’s required to sustain, maintain, and utilize this time in the most constructive and correct manner. Myself, I personally feel if people, whether family or not, truly analyze prison, the system, and the effects of the way the system is operated, they would relinquish all preconceived notions and be more sensitive to an ex-offenders appeal for help, love, and support.
