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…..
