So, I’m writing this thinking about how great my release date will be. I’m so optimistic about the future. I know I can’t go wrong. I’ve got no worries of employment or money. I know I’ll be a successful person, yes prison sucks, and I’m lonely, yet I stay positive. I’m eager to make new friends and maybe settle down. What I need is positive, good, sober people in my life. I wish I had a more solid support system, yet I can only do so much from prison. The only source of communication I have is mail and collect calls. No internet. As I think about getting out, I think there may be one thing that is intimidating, and that’s women. I know it may sound funny, but it’s true. I’ve not been around the opposite sex for a very long time. So women are definitely going to be a scare factor. That will make me shy and nervous. As for my release, I’m not sure where to parole, so I’ll cross that bridge when it comes. Who knows what can happen before then. So the best thing to do is stay positive, optimistic and excited for what the future may hold.

When you look around and at these relationships we can see a lot of people only want to be around when the sun is shining; which means when there is no storm on the horizon. Something like when a person is in prison without any bright light to shine through, only cage bars with dark walls to look forward to. As you sit here and read my words to move you some way, you already know that I am within the storm, but you have an open mind to want to reach out to someone when they are down. That says and means a lot to people like myself which we can respect in a real way. But then you have those individuals who come in your life and knew the life that you lead, but the sun was shining bright so they embrace every part of your being until the storm came through and they were gone, like the movie: “Gone With The Wind”. Do people lose their self for immediate sensation? Why do we lose our loyalty for a brighter present? My guess is a lot of us haven’t been taught to stick around and some of us learn when we become much older and wiser from experience. To really understand what it really means to have a friend’s back (loyal). I’ve received it with wisdom, and from doing time and seeing how dudes were treated and left for dead in here and out there in society. Everybody wants to be loved, but a lot of these people do not want to work hard at loving others. I guess they prefer the easy way only to be there when there are clear skies. My thoughts for y’all. Do what you say you going to do and mean what you say. I say what I mean and mean what I say. Yes all relationships are like a job you have to work at it every day so it can be fulfillment to all parties involved.

I lay here in this dark secluded cell and just stare at the walls, it seems as if I was trapped between time and space. A place people don’t know existed, the only thoughts you are able to hold in your head are the same patterns repeated again and again. This is a world where loved ones drop off like rain and friends disappear like morning dew in the sunshine. The air is sale, but I learn to cope. I learned to accept the inevitable, that’s what I had to do. I learn to embrace my struggles, difficulties, and frustrations. So I continue to dream. Recalling the day’s I once had friends, I learned friendship doesn’t walk away, people do…a friend is what I yearn for, my focal point, praying for true friendship. Just being able to express myself to a true friend, that awakens my memory in a pleasantness of what used to be. As days turn into months and months into years, it’s a amazing that I still hang on to the day of walking out of this place, the air is thick with mold and mildew, heavy with perspiration, and too much maleness all around, then you really realize why God created woman. Women is what makes man chemically balanced, “not” being able to communicate with a woman is not what God intended for a man. Women is God’s most precious and beautiful gift to man and to this world. Prison is designed to rob you of all you possess. All you have is your clothes on your back, a face towel and every day wishing for a precious letter from a friend to hold onto. So, I “refuse” to give the satisfaction of seeing me down and empty, void of any life, vitality, or dreams just waiting on the day to leave prison behind…. Friendship and a simple letter from a friend is worth a trillion dollars in prison. I am an individual that cherishes friendship, because I understand what it truly means. I’m hoping we will always be friends, write me soon.

Inspiration...Tunes from a symphony. I feel it was not sent to me…Melodies so strange, nothing kin to me If I fail to recognize sin, please have the wisdom to repent for me…Pain never lasts forever, scriptures of sympathy…One chance to see if crash around me…One time to do it over like I had an epiphany…But I still struggle and strive, so hard to maintain, so focused on not-to-dos that I'm sleepin' on main things Reminisce…past life…a mirage in the frame. Tears of a bad fall - Just a day in the rain.

Verily, all praise is for ALLAH (God). We praise Him, we seek His assistance, His guidance, and we ask Him for His forgiveness. And we seek refuge with ALLAH (God) from the evil of ourselves and the evils of our actions. Whosoever Allah (God) guides, there is no one that can misguide them. And whomever is misguided there is no one that can guide them. And I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except ALLAH (God) alone, without any partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His and His messenger. O you who believe! Fear ALLAH (God) as he ought to be feared and die not except while you are Muslims. O mankind! Fear your Lord who created you from a single person (Adam) and from him, he created his wife (Eve), and from both he created many men and women. Fear ALLAH (God) from who you demand your mutual rights and do not cut off the relations of the womb. Surely, ALLAH (God) is ever an ALL-WATCHER over you. O you who believe! I keep your duty to ALLAH (God) and fear Him and (always) He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys ALLAH (God) and His messenger, then they have achieved a great success. Verily, the most truthful speech is the book of ALLAH (God) and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad. And the most evil of affairs are the newly invented matters, for indeed every newly invented matter is an innovation, and every innovation is a misguidance. And every misguidance is in the Hell fire!

Sitting in a cell waiting for mail call, thinking today is the day that you reach out to me. I don’t know your name. I don’t know where you live. I don’t know what you look like. I just know you’re there. As I wait, I think of you. I think about where this will lead. I wonder what it is you desire; truth, honesty, openness? Being accepted for who you are? And to be loved for that? I hope so, these are the things I desire and these are the qualities I give. I wait for your letter so that I may read and escape these prison walls, reach out, and briefly be with you, to begin writing you so that I may start to share pieces of myself with you. I want to understand you and I want you to understand me. Taking this journey together, not knowing where it will lead. Just knowing there is a destination, hoping today the letter arrives. The letter that will open up a new world to me, a world that I can explore and in turn showing you a new world with my letters you can explore. Well, here’s mail call, is it your name on the letter?

Love Is A Commitment~~ Ladies you may be a great woman but if your man ain’t ready to be monogamous, it’s not going to happen. If your man works a lot, hanging out with this friends after work and doing them but as a woman, what is your role? How are you encouraging your man to spend quality time with you? What are you doing to encourage him to stop hanging out with his friends after work? You spend all day thinking and all night wondering what is going on. And every now and then you get to wondering if he’s with someone else. Listen ladies, this type of man is not for you. Stay in your lane before you find yourself walking on the highway with a straight jacket on and footies, for no damn reason. Ladies, if you’re going to be faithful, do it by choice not because you think your man is faithful to you. Because love sometimes fails for lack of wisdom or abundance of weakness, but it forgives knowing that the intentions are good. Love realized and accepts that there will be disagreements and disturbing emotions. Love takes time, it needs a history of giving and receiving, laughing and crying. There even may be times when distances and miles lie between. But love is a commitment; it believes and endures all things. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to write one. ~~ One Love, Richard

Now that you’ve read a small bit about who and what I used to do and be, maybe you’re interested in what I’d like to do upon my release? My plans are to lease or buy a commercial size dump truck, I owe no one and have decent credit so that shouldn’t be a problem; move to a city where an owner operator would be in high demand and work that truck until the wheels fall off. Within five years I hope to have made enough to lease or buy a couple more trucks, maybe even some other “heavy equipment” and start a small construction business. I’m not interested in going back to the Ohio area, my children will be grown and family and friends understand I want/need to go somewhere that gives me the best possible chance to be successful. I just need to figure out where that’d be (?). In my “spare time” I’d like to do some traveling. I’ve always wanted to travel but never did so. If not traveling I’d settle for a nice quiet evening at home watching a movie or out in the yard doing something around the house. I’ve learned over the years that life isn’t about “racing through it”, it’s about relaxing and enjoying it. If I sound like someone you might be interested in getting to know, please reach out. I’d enjoy hearing from you. I’m the type of guy who believes I have something to offer (even with my current situation) any/every one if given a chance. So give a “good guy” who’s made some poor decisions a chance. I promise you won’t regret it. Sincerely, Chris

We’ve all heard the phrase, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, growing up and I think we all might be guilty of doing that at least once in our life? If it’s not the cover it could be the title? Either way, you never know what’s inside of that book you passed on because the cover wasn’t up to par to you “standards”! Being a convicted felon and incarcerated us inmates are the “books” getting judged and passed on! We constantly look for different ways of making a new friend but the sources we do have expose our “cover” and we get judged for different reasons. We all have our life stories, some worse than others but being in prison doesn’t make us bad people; we just made a wrong choice in a spur of the moment situation! Growing up I never thought I’d be in a place like this…but yet here I am, looking from the inside out! Not only do we have to face judgment in here but now when we try to get a job in the world, we’re going to be the “cover” that gets overlooked. I understand I can’t control a lot of things in life but why define someone by their “cover”? After all, isn’t it about what’s on the inside that counts? I refuse to let my past define my future, but I wonder when my “cover” will finally get opened so you can know the real me? …..Mike…..

“Stop The Violence” It seems like every day I turn on the TV and there’s more and more violence! Shootings, deaths, murders! Even the people where we turn to for protection, “Police Officers” are making it where 911 might be the last option! To “protect & serve” they claim? Wow, can’t believe the nerve! Lol Has it really come down to this! It’s funny but it seems safer in the Department of Corrections then the streets! And to me that’s sad. Innocent people dying because they’re in the “wrong place, wrong time”. Revenge deaths, he did this, so I’ll come back 10 times harder! People literally dying over 20 bucks! Wow really makes you think it is safe anywhere anymore? From the projects to the suburbs, kids, to grandparents! Please let’s stop the violence! I would like to turn on my TV and be happy of what my country has become. Not be scared of my family or my future outside these walls! For anyone who has lost anyone to violence or family whos brother or sister has life in D.O.C. over a violent act, my heart goes out to you and no, you’re not alone! In this fight to make our cities safer for our kids! Let’s bring peace in our streets. Make it where we can walk down the road without a care in the world! From all walks of life, please stop the violence! #Peace in the streets
