Gregory Tate's Photo 1 of 1

Hello, my name is Gregory. I’m currently seeking friends in the form of pen pals. I’m a writer. I write poetry, short stories, essays and have written (7) novels I’m currently about to publish online. I’m also in Coastline Community College program where I’m working on an Associates of Arts degree in Business and Social/Behavioral Science. I look forward to hearing from friends. I will respond to all letters. If I don’t respond to your letter, I did not get it, so please try again.


I have legs, but I can not run far.
I have eyes, but cannot see the sun rise and set.
I have ears, but cannot hear the children playing in the summertime.
I have a nose, but cannot smell the fragrances of a gardenia in a woman’s hair.
I have arms, but cannot embrace the warmth of you.
I have a heart, but it cries and yearns out to BE FREE!
I have compassion so tender, yet my feelings are restrained.
I have dreams, visions and expectations that are so remote to the realities of words.
ALL this and more to be expressed, but today, I still remain IMMOBILIZED!

This is one of the poems in one of my novels, expressing the feeling of a man in prison. Your friendship and letters would help me a great deal to give me a sense of normalcy and connection to the outside world. Thank you very much for your time reading my ad.
