PEN-PALS

I am incarcerated in TDCJ, charged with burglary of a habitation. 10 years is the sentence that they gave me. I’ve got 5 years on it as of right now, May 3016, and hoping to make parole soon. This is the second time that I’ve been to the penitentiary. The first time was in 2010 for theft. I did 11 months on a 2 year sentence before I got out on parole. When a person is on parole he is not allowed to leave the state (for me, that will be Texas), unless he gets permission for his parole officer. # work purposes. I’m determined to stay out of jail this time around. There will be no more coming back for me. I’ll not allow myself to live the lifestyle that got me in here, anymore and I owe it to more people than myself. As for my pen-pals…With me, a friend made is a friend never lost. I’m not one to forget or dismiss you once I get released from prison. I’m genuine; I hold dear my pen-pals. To have the courage to reach out to me shows a lot about your character. That first step is the hardest step and I applaud you for taking it. I thank you, in the most sincere way. On another note, I’m not into lying so I try not to associate myself with those kinds of people. Honesty is key to any companionship. Hopefully, this helps you better understand who I am.

Have you ever heard the saying, out of sight, out of mind? Well now that I’m in prison most of my so called “friends” are gone. It’s funny how it happens that way, huh? I’ve since done away with my fair weather friends, that are around when things are great but disappear when times get tough and I’m looking to start anew. I’m thankful for WAP expanding my horizons and showing me the real meaning of true friends. WAP has provided me with genuine friends that never judge and are willing to look past my flaws. In return I’ll never judge and will be grateful for every day that you’re in my life. It feels good to meet new people. The potential and excitement itself makes it all worthwhile! If we can make each other smile through letters, the sky’s the limit once we’re in each other’s presence! Also, if you feel handwritten letters take too long to reach me, you can send emails that’ll get to me within 24 hours at www.jpay.com. This is convenient for anybody especially a foreigner, as it takes the better part of a month to correspond with one another by airmail. Jpay even costs less, however just be sure to add your address on the jpay or I’ll be unable to respond. We could even talk over the phone if you’ll connect it at www.texasprisonphone.com. Hope to hear from you soon (smile).

PEN-PALS

Writing allows me the time to think. Even though every word I put down is true, I can seek out the most powerful word(s) to express my meaning. Pen and paper gives me the chance to re-read what I’ve written, go back, change up my words to make them sound more genuine and ultimately, make me look better in your eyes. That’s why, on paper, I may come off as an original poet. To where, if I’m in front of you, I may miss out on speaking the perfect words that I put on paper. In person, I may smile or smirk while looking into your eyes just to make you feel good and wanted or loved. No words needed. Body language is powerful. It tells you what words cannot. You can see the truth and the untruth in the way a person moves. But who’s to say we can not have the best of both worlds… I still have a little time left in prison. If we try, we can get to know each other through writing, better than our own friends know us. Writing gives us the advantage to dig deeper into each other’s intellect. And once I get out, if it’s agreed, we can meet up and we’ll already know each other’s likes/dislikes, do’s and don’ts. It’ll be easy to please each other with the knowledge we’ve gotten while writing. In the end, I would like to be the most compatible person you know.
