I’m looking for friends who will not judge me for my past mistakes, my faith or for being in prison. My prison stay has been hard and full of struggles. For 10 of my 16 years down here I was isolated by myself, locked in a cell 23 hours a day. At first it was hard and at that point I didn’t have any hope, things just got worse. Then a friend sent me some literature and I started reading. I knew I had found something and it was right so with time I kept reading and searched within myself. I knew I had to be strong for my family. With time I humbled myself and came to see that the change for the better was my best option.
I was tired of the same old cycle of my past life. Furthermore, I wanted something that I let down. Today I feel better! I’m no longer lost, no longer part of a gang. I’m a man on a mission to succeed. My days are spent exercising the mind, body and soul. Painting has become one of my favorite pastimes. When that day arrives to leave I hope to ride away on a Harley motorcycle listening to Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer. Well, I’d love to share more but my words are limited.
