Greetings friend, my name is Charles but in the big house I am referred to as “Bird” because of my last name (Byrd). Yah, I know it’s spelled a little differently however it is pronounced the same. I have been in prison for the last 15 odd years, my experience of life behind the barbed wire has given me a new perspective of the world. It is amazing how fast time slips away and how much you miss out on life while incarcerated. As you may imagine it makes you appreciate all of the things you took for granted.
For awhile now my social interactions with society has been on pause. As if my world has stood still but the problem with that is the world keeps spinning for everyone else. I was waiting to be free to press play and get back in the game of life, however I am done waiting for something that is down the road. I want to deal with what I got now and how to expand my circle of friends and acquaintances.
I want to meet and correspond with new people, so we can share this gift called life. I want to hear about your hopes and dreams, then discuss your trials and tribulations as they come to fruition, all while sharing my own. This is the purpose of my profile to share this most precious gift with others and reconnect with society.
