Hey World, Wow! Shout out to the write a prisoner staff enormously. Really break that last word down to syllables. It is a must LOL. Sometimes sitting here in this cell you tend to over think. I mean, I think that an over thought is the process to which a thought is thoroughly understood in retrospect…therefore it becomes a remote memory of something relevant. I say that to say…time…time in itself is so fleeting that we never seem to have enough of it, right? But as a thought, what does it mean when you have too much of it? Especially, too much to “think”. I’m talking about too much time to “think”. If time is so fleeting how can one acquire enough for the duration of the most miniscule form of thought? That is the question. But I won’t tease you with brainy riddles without answers. The answer to the question is to stop “living” and start thinking. Time is fluid like an ocean and the only way to alter it is thru the mind. Until you have mastered the art of “thinking”. You will never have enough time. Without time how can you truly live? Does that mean you’re alive? But what does it mean to have too much time to think? LOL It means that you’re alive.

GANG VIOLENCE

Hello, I would like to address the importance of helping today’s youth overcome the perils of gangs and gang violence. As a notable ex-gang member myself, I have experienced the brutal and utter dark side of “colors”. From being shot, stabbed, and watching my childhood friends disappear to the grave and the belly of the beast, “jail”. That is destined to be thee exact fate of our youth without proper awareness. For me as a young adult in hindsight, I had every opportunity to run the streets but also had people in my corner that wanted the best for me but… it wasn’t enough. It is said that it takes 2 people to make a child but a “WHOLE VILLAGE” TO RAISE ONE. Do you understand the implications of that statement? It means we have to be active and hands on in the upbringing our stray lion cubs to prevent the rise of generation after generation of senseless bloodshed. These young lives matter and deserve the chances that a lot of us didn’t get. It is a fact that proper planning prevents poor performance. Speak up, Speak out. Be active. Please see the community program “crimefreekids.com” Own you future.

IMAGINATION

Hey Hey – World I really hope that you guys paid special attention to that last piece on gang violence and our youth. I can’t stress the issue enough, man, really. However, today?...I want to discuss “Imagination”. Remember the movie “Back to the Future” when that wacky scientist used to say “Aha”! I think I’ve had one of those “Aha” moments. In fact I’m quite sure you all have but to different degrees. For example, when I lay here in this cell and let my mind go on autopilot? I find that I can transcend these bars, barbed wire and guard towers but most importantly I can reach heights so high that I can view how vast our galaxy is and “imagine” realms and dimensions foreign to my own. Wait, wait, now I know some of you are like (this guy just went wacky scientist), but really think about what I just said…Did I? I mean, look around you, trees, animals, bugs, plants even all the way down to shapes and patterns in leaves and snowflakes. Everything has its own intricate design unique in its own way, just like people. I say all this to say that these things all have an origin…the Creator. It’s logic that the creator had a blueprint and vision for the creative force. We were “imagined” first. Root word “image”. I’ll wait while some of you reference dictionaries (hey did any of you guys hear about the death of superstar Prince?) super unfortunate. Purple rainnnn, purple ra…oh wait,..we’re…we’re back on the air? Okay, sorry about that. Ummm, now where was I? Oh yeah, imagination…the power of thought and imagination is said to hold unknown capabilities. You know why? Because it has the ability to alter reality and shape perception. Meaning it creates life on many different levels. In deeper science, the projected thought form causes a chain reaction on a subatomic level, making probability of grasping and obtaining your desired reality by simply reaching for it “possible”. I call it the atom thought A.K.A. Faith…Uh, oh now I know you all are saying how can imagination and thought have anything to do with faith, right? Especially since imagination’s root word is image which is something related to “seeing” while faith on the other hand is belief without “seeing”, right? But that is where you would be wrong and mistaken. Why? Because faith is seeing. Faith is seeing with your heart and the spirit. Even the Bible said that faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains…literally. So…what was that? …Who just called me a nerd? Hmph, I’ll have you know (British Accent) if it weren’t twas my passion to hear myself talk, perhaps I would be a human English Oxford dictionary I suppose…I’m sorry everybody, that was my alter ego Mr. President January Odrama LOL. Basically what I’m trying to get across to you horrid people is that, “You can do anything” in this world and even create your own. Don’t be burdened by the roles that society puts on your shoulders…hold on for a second, “(For God’s sakes man can you please turn down that stupid Radio!!) People are so rude in here! Him and that dog gone, “Moves like Jagger” song. SMH…Moral of the story ladies and gentlemen, “You have to own it if you want it.” Never doubt yourself. Never give yourself limits and never stop imagining. That’s what Peter Pan was about (voice breaks) oh man, that movie was so beautiful (sniffle) (that movie was not about men in tights!!!) It was about being young, see how much you know! (That stupid moves like Jagger song) Until next time people. Class dismissed (Get off me)!!!

What’s up write a prisoner fam. I’m sitting here in my zone just coasting, you know. I got my TV on but it’s watching me instead of me it. Tonight’s one of those nights I guess…I don’t know if it’s because of the phone call with my family I had earlier that’s getting to me but it damn sure is something. Everybody keeps asking me how I’m doing and telling me to be strong and I think that is what grinds my gears LOL. I’m good! I’m easy like Sunday morning. I don’t even think about my situation because it doesn’t exist to me. Of course I’m away from family and friends but so are soldiers when it’s war…so are traveling business men…so are people who are away at college. Feel me? This is nothing but a vacation in an all too familiar place that I should be leaving on the next available red eye. Everything is great and I’m enjoying the view. Really, I am. I’m a realist. I know that once I do leave my little get away, it’s work, work, work. That’s all life ever is and it’s wonderful. I have associates, friends and family and it’s all love. How could it not be? Don’t I got the best street team ever holding down the fort? Don’t I live like a king, thanks to all the above? (Shout out write a prisoner street team) (Shout out to my entourage) too many to name. Don’t I inspire the deepest thoughts? Last but not least, isn’t Elvis still the king? … my point exactly… All those who feast with me at my round table have crowns and thrones and the love itself is royalty LOL. If you’re wondering the meaning of these benign words…all you need to do is reflect on my next six words…To live doesn’t mean you’re alive…

Allow me to introduce myself; “My name is Mario (Sing Songy Tune). I used to move snowflakes by the oh-zee!...LOL Ladies and Gentleman, I’m back! Back like I never left but I guess the right thing to say is that I picked it back up. Wait…if I picked it back up, then where did I leave it at?! Huhhh! Alright, my life has taken the most exhilarating and awesome turn ever. Like, if navigation and GPS was my life coach it would say, “Your destination is on the right” (In all capital letters with exclamation point). You know…throughout my whole existence and experiences in this, I always thought that I would’ve been murdered along with all the other people that I knew coming up that were running and fell. C’mon, you gotta be familiar with those statistical numbers of young and deprived men in urban communities that by many standards “couldn’t cut it” in the real world, or society if you will. Those that come from where I’m from understand me but to those at odds we’re only at odds until we’re even, you know. I don’t know if I mentioned to you guys early on about my documentary that I had in the works but if “not” then now you know. LOL So far the prison has approved and authorized it so much as its educational and positive annnnd…wait for it…”I got my first official interview with a television network today!” #FACTS This is so amazing and surreal to me because for once in my life I feel like I’m making it “out” of the cycle that led me into the darkness in the first place, you know. Time to make lemonade out of these lemons I was given. “Also”…I would like to thank the one who has been my rock, my best friend, my round thirteen fighter, my confidante and Queen. Mrs. McClain. Since the day I found you we have been inseparable and forever immortalized here in these words, I bow at your throne. Jesus most trusted and loved disciple was Mary who was present at the last supper. The proof is in the details. To me you are my Magdalene and hidden rose in the garden. May your grail overflow. Your love is my sanctuary. Write a prisoner family…we made it! To be continued…
