I’ve always seen colors as hidden barriers of unspoken languages. For most people, the color red is just red – but I see passion and desire in the fabrics of what makes the color – its color. Most people wouldn’t embark along a journey with men under such unfortunate circumstances as myself. Spoken in reference of clarity – prison is a reflection of the man. I am not that man I strive so hard to be. There’s so many shades and colors that make up the portraits of my life that it would be nearly impossible to use the blank canvas of myself to paint an accurate depiction of who I am. Although I’m from the depths of the street culture, my attire makes up of more than the stereotypical aspects of the streets. My isolation from society is just a cause of me falling victim to the circumstances that life has to offer. Hopefully your curiosity through the conveyance of this short synopsis would get a response. I look forward to painting new colors into the journey of a conquest that I call a canvas of my life.

I’m presently two chapters away from completing a novel I’ve written. I’ve accomplished this goal while being incarcerated. Within the novel I discuss how I became an adult at the age of six. Wherefore, I never had the privilege of being a kid in life. Years of suffering from mental and physical abuse, I share with the readers how I became dependent on drugs and alcohol. As if this wasn’t bad enough, my experiences of numerous jail and prison sentences, what it’s like inside of these places, how mental illnesses have become a large part of corrections today. Personal interviews I’ve conducted with inmates serving life or double life sentences and the crimes they were convicted of, two different prison riots a friend and I both witnessed (what happened and what caused them), segregation unit (the hole), job performances of jailors and correctional officers (their goals), parole boards, descriptions of those in authority (judges, prosecutors, attorneys, police officers etc) After working on change for the past three years, how I fell and got back up. How I changed old behaviors and negative thoughts. The transformation that inspired me to change my life. What prompted me into writing this book…it’s a story beyond belief. My question for you; is this a book society would be interested in reading? Please comment…Regarding what you have read, is there anything you have often wondered about? Please comment…Thank you for your input, have a wonderful day.

MANGA/ANIME COMMENTS

I’ve been reading a couple of ongoing manga lately: Ubel Blatt and Goodnight Punpun. Ubel Blatt is a gritty fantasy with a sort of Steampunk asthetic. It’s kind of Final fantasy - esque. If you’re looking for a dark, adult fantasy without the usual added pervy-ness I highly recommend this series.

ARTISTIC EXPLORATIONS

So, I’ve been trying to mix the anime art style with grayscale. Right now, I have an unfinished piece with a phoenix done in pencil and an anime chick behind it. I’m waiting on some pens so I can finish the line work on the check. It’s hard to find Manga-type liner pens around here. If you have any suggestions on alternative liner methods, please let me know! In the meantime, I’m open to suggestions on stuff to draw. If you want something done for you let me know. All I ask is that you post it to my profile when you get it.

This pain I feel is the pain of abandoning a delusion, the delusion is meaning. There is a higher purpose. At times I feel like there are no gods, no arbiters of right and wrong. I’m not meant to like reality. I’m only meant to be strong enough to face it. There is nothing beyond this. There is only the perfection we attain by becoming what we need to become to survive. As strong and merciless as a sword, I see what’s going on in the world and I see that people (we) live like there is no essential good in living, like life is nothing in itself. That it’s a place marker that proves who’s winning and even winning means nothing. We win because it’s an insult to lose. The ends don’t justify the means and the means don’t justify the ends. There is no one to justify to, there is no justification, there is no justice. It’s such a God-less state of mind to be in, but so legitimate a feeling when I think about how cold and evil the world is. It seems we don’t understand so we hate and we hate because we don’t understand. Instead of offering a helping hand, we offer insults and hatred. At times I feel like humanity has lost faith in humanity. But at the bottom there is still hope that we can live in a world where we focus on our similarities rather than our differences.

THE REAL ME

“CHECK MY PULSE” ~~ Throughout these trials and tribulations I’ve had a lot of hard lows, but as I sit back and examine my difficulties I can’t help but think how soft my highs are going to be once I’m free. The road I’m taking is unorthodox, but the fires I’m passing through are making me a uniquely strong individual. I can’t wait to get out and be THIS person, the ‘me’ that should have taken precedence in my life from the beginning. The waiting is hard- especially doing it alone- but that light at the end of the tunnel keeps me motivated. Many people look at me and see a ‘criminal’, there’s so much more to me though. I’ve seen plenty of good in my life, but it’s the bad that’s made me a better person, if that’s comprehensible. How can you truly enjoy the people in your life or all the little things if you’ve never experienced what it’s like to be alone or have nothing at all? Of course, many people understand ‘good things’ without experience the negatives of life, but the feeling of having lost and given up hope of ever feeling that ‘goodness’ again- and then finding it…It’s just not the same as always having had these things. Am I making sense? I’ve lost and missed out on a lot of chances due to choices I made as a kid- love, friends, family, overall experience of being out in society and living…Time won’t allow me to get those things back and will make it difficult when I get out in ways, but I look forward to THOSE challenges- that’s what life’s about. In here the challenge is learning the patience to ‘stay alive’ because the reality is we’re slowly dying in here and we’re already forgotten by many in the world. A lot of people just accept that state of being- not me. I plan on being happy; making others happy, and enjoying the rest of the years I have left living without regrets. ~~ I’m still here World! Alive and Kicking…

Inmate Blog Category:Relationships


A meaningful relationship to me means many things. It can mean platonic, or it can mean romantic. It can be intellectual, or down to earth and heartfelt. I would like to view prison as a stepping stone to a greater future, and I would really enjoy some company! I am single, witty, confident, and not intellectual challenged. I have found myself in a place that discourages ambition; a place where intelligence is a curse rather than a gift. I am seeking somebody that can captivate my mind (and maybe my heart?). Our relationship does not have to be romantic but I feel that we should have a few things in common. A few years ago I was a lump of coal, but after facing the various pressures of the life that I led, I have become a diamond; a diamond in the rough, true, but a diamond just the same. I know that with the proper influence and motivation I can continue to grow. One day I may even shine! I understand that forming a lasting bond from prison can be a challenge, but with the right chemistry, anything can happen! My past holds some dark spaces that I am not proud of I also believe that my future holds many bright and glittery adventures. Would you like to join me? If so, I look forward to your letter and I hope that we can make a connection. Give me a chance and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I want to add a photo of my mom and me at visiting. I guess I am a ‘momma’s boy’ because I love her the most. The large drawing, with the tree is my family crest. It is the world tree, rooted in GIA, with Eros’ heart and wings as its branches. The infinity triangle of love and compassion is set inside GIA because it is at the root of my personal beliefs and morals. These might be famous on the net; I have been told that the people who stole my identity in 2013 still repost my original pictures of my tattoos as their own. My favorite colors are blue, green, grey, pink, yellow, and then purple. My favorite numbers are 8, 12, 16, 21 then 49. I absolutely love dance, trance, Dubstep, Electronica, Disco, and pretty much any positive or up-lifting music; but not preachy or too religious. I like to be in shape and hate having body hair. I have to shave, since I can’t wax in here, at least once a week or I get grossed out. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are my favorite books, followed by ‘Iron Druid Chronicles’, and anything by ‘AVI’ or ‘Rich Riodan! I am working on the rough draft of a fiction story about Zombies, love, family, as well as starting Spanish lessons, again. I am at my word limit again! Thanks for considering me for a pen-pal. I will send another update soon.

LIVING DEATH

I see this from time to time. Prison has been described as having a permanent black cloud eternally present in the atmosphere. In this frame of mind the body decays. Someone may feel physically sluggish, mentally foggy, unenthusiastic, bored, with a tendency to procrastinate. They would like to sleep for as long as they exist. Like the hinges on a door they toss and turn but are going nowhere. In this state, one is in the state of living death. One thing is certain in life, it’s ever changing nature. The animals in the wild understand this. After a lavish summer, come the trying times of Winter then Spring follows. Try not letting everyone in on your misery or wearing your heart on your sleeve. Even the most sympathetic people would rather be in the company of a winner. Those who contribute to your crises, do not give them the satisfaction of knowing they got the power to hurt you. Find a way to utilize the weakness and turn it into strength. The absence of negative experiences in our life does not alone contribute to the quality of our life. As a noble people, we need challenges and by confronting them and overcoming them we develop fully. If you contemplate the negativity enough you will discover that they are in fact the strongest assets in your personal, professional and spiritual development. I don’t pray for, I choose to live with the unshakable inner strength of my ancestors to accept these harsh lessons and learn from them and not be destroyed by them. There is no one out there you have to conquer, when you have successfully conquered your-self, the world will be at your feet.
