DO YOU BELIEVE IN SECOND CHANCES?

Lost my father recently to cancer; he was the last of my family. He fought hard in his last days to live long enough to see me released from prison. I know in my heart he will see me released while watching over me from his new home in Heaven. I know he would have been proud of everything I accomplished while being incarcerated. I took this opportunity to get all the education offered to me on numerous fronts. First I received my diploma for Paralegal/Legal Secretary, then I became a CPR Instructor. Last January I started Horticulture School through a Community College, which I will graduate from May 2014. I now hold Louisiana State Pest Control Licenses in private Applicator, Public Health, Industrial/Institutional and General Commercial. I want to continue my education in this field by receiving licenses in Mosquito Control and Rodent Control. I am also a Certified Nurseryman through Louisiana State University. I would still like to hear from anyone who can/will help me further my education and support me in getting work in this field once I’m released. You can now email me direct by going online to JPay.com. I hope to hear from some people that believe in second chances.

PATIENCE

Still Waiting…….I’m very patient…well now days I have no choice. Prison will teach you how to be patient. Out there in the world everything seems to be moving so fast. Nobody likes to wait. We hate sitting in traffic. We hate that red light. We hate waiting in the drive thru line. We almost go crazy any time we have to wait. I’m not different than most, but I’m learning. Yes I’m learning how to be patient. A wise man one said good things come to those who wait. Prison really sucks in so many different ways but I feel like I have to find something positive in every situation. Even in a negative situation. By doing this I’m becoming optimistic and developing a good attitude. A lot of people only see negativity. They only see the bad. They have a bad way of thinking. Bad attitudes can only lead to trouble. It’s just that simple. No I’m not perfect but I’m learning and improving. I know my time will come. I also know that there is somebody for everybody. Love and happiness are priceless. Some people will go their whole life without finding either. Some people will obtain degrees, dream jobs, and riches but still find there is something missing. Love and happiness is sometimes right up under our noses. Sometimes we just need to open our eyes or our minds.

SHARING THE PAST

When I was a youngster, my mom took me to the pet store so I could learn to be responsible. I looked around until I came across a cage of guinea pigs. They were so cute, so I picked one up. This was my friend (or so I thought). Apparently the little guy would rather be back in the cage because he bit me. I screamed and tried to throw him back in the cage but in my frantic freak out I knocked the guinea pig cage over. Now there were several of these diabolical rodents scurrying all around my feet. My mind went into survival mode. I tried to climb onto the shelves that held the snake containers. I knocked two over as I managed to get to safety. Snakes were squeezing guinea pigs, guinea pigs were biting snakes, kids were crying, parents were shouting. TOTAL PANDEMONIUM! My mom stood there, arms crossed looking humiliated yet amused. Trust not the guinea pigs for they are deceitful creatures waiting for the opportunity to inflict pain on an unwilling participant. Be wary! Be afraid! Avoid! I‘m just sitting at my desk and thought I’d share a moment of my past with you on this cold and rainy night. Our pasts want to be shared, good and bad. So let’s exchange some and get to know each other. Freedom is a state of mind.

APPRECIATE THE SUPPORT!

“Love Love Love”, so much love; I want to thank all you beautiful, gorgeous women for taking time out of your busy schedules to write me. *Appreciate it!* It really helps my time fly by and days go by faster just knowing I have some correspondence to look forward to at the end of the day when mail call occurs! Anticipation can be a killer but also a wonder! (smile) The best thing and wonderful thing about anticipation is it works both ways…do you agree? Well anyways I’m good at the moment, well the best I can be in this situation and predicament anyhow. I’m not going to say I go without bad days though (hint hint), that’s why I love and appreciate my letters. It’s always an uprising to a downfall; so for all you females out there doin your thang, “stay on your grown woman stuff and always be progressive; set goals that are reachable and accomplishable!” Well continue showing me some love through writing or JPay, whichever is to your best convenience. “But please be sure to include your address if you’re showing your love through JPay so I can show some love back". Jpay does not include your address if you do not give it to me specifically in the JPay ok. One last thing, just posted two new pictures, make sure you check them out!

SPECIAL FRIEND

"SPECIAL FRIEND” Hello to my special friend, who I hope to someday meet. I hope that you’ll take that first step and sweep me off my feet. I know what I’m looking for, someone with a good heart, wanting to make a connection, even though we’re miles apart. I have no expectations but I’m hoping for the best, wondering if there is someone out there to fill the emptiness in my chest. And when you’re feeling down, I’ll be there to pick you up. No matter what you’re going through, I’ll always show you love. And if your heart’s been broken, I’ll make sure your wounds get healed, through good times and bad times, I’ll ask you how you feel. So if you’re feeling lonely, just pick up a pad and pen, together we can build a friendship that will last until the end…..I wrote this poem hoping to open the eyes of anyone who might be going through things in their life, to realize they don’t have to be alone. Whether it is something good or bad that you’re going through, I could be there for you too, if you let me. Even though I may not be able to be there for you physically, I’ll do anything in my power to make sure I’m the friend you need. But the first step is on you, I can only hope you make the move. Anything could happen, but you’ll never know if you don’t try….Truly, One Love! Demetrio

SOMETHING MORE THAN THE USUAL!

To The Searching…..to the one searching for something more than the usual but never less than the average. A person who stays complacent and shows the right emotions when the need arises. My own situation has placed me in the lane of searching for someone with these same qualities. No, I’m not Superman or anything and I’m humans with scars from a history of trial and error. The definition of love has changed throughout recent years. It went from us doing for each other to can you endure the things we have to go thru? Anyone can be comfortable just doing for someone, however very few can make serious moves with the other. Most say “I’m cool with how it is now” and then turn right around and slander the very thing they were “cool” with a minute ago. I only want a half a minute of your time. I’m on top of a lot of things that men overlook, only to miss out on the gift of life…a woman’s smile. I’m interested in the triple threat; a meantally, physically and spiritually stable woman friend. A triple threat shouldn’t be that hard. I feel opposites attract so you might be reading what you’ve been missing. Until the first time, peace and good health.

STAYING POSITIVE WITH BUDDHA

The new year is here, time to slow down, enjoy the everyday things we take for granted. A child’s laughter, the smell of flowers, clouds moving across the sky, your pet begging for your attention, a loved one’s warm embrace, birds singing….I want to thank with all my heart all who wrote me and shared uplifting words…and to the mothers who wrote me, may your days be filled with joy, laughter, love, and peace. Your words meant more to me than you will ever know….I’ve signed up to speak with “at risk teens” about gangs and drugs here at the prison. I think I might be able to have a positive impact on some of these kids so I’m putting my best foot forward. I don’t want to see anyone end up where I am so I’m going to do something about it….I’m asking all who read this to please take a minute to write me, let’s talk about life or whatever is on your mind. Also I’m looking for someone who is willing to take the time to teach me about Buddhism and answer all my questions as there is no teacher here at the prison. So I am trying to find someone who doesn’t mind guiding me…oh and the “Book Guy” in Melbourne, I did not get your address, please contact me so we can talk and I can thank you….may Buddha bring you peace.

CHANGE

Hello! If you go to my blog site, MrLove75.wordpress.com, you will read blogs of my life, how I mentor to inmates and at risk teens, and my perspective of life! As you read about crimes, money, material possessions, UN-cut criminal realities, all those things don't come close to one's freedom. Today, 1/9/2014, I sat back this morning and watched news of the coldest winter ever, high unemployment, and how Americans are struggling day after day! As bad as all that sounds, me and the other 2.3 million men and women who made mistakes, would give anything to be a member of society dealing with what is on the news daily! This is the price inmates pay for not appreciating our freedom when we had it. I get so upset cause breaking the law and the consequences is never truthfully explained or talked about in middle schools, high schools, or colleges. My reality as a Black man is no rap song, gangster movie, or urban book that so many teens and young adults can't wait to hear, read, or see! It's very real! The youth, teens, and adults, wanting to live out the criminal characters are so wrongfully glamorized in movies, music, novels, and TV shows isn't worth the 5, 10, or 25 years to life in prison!! It's time that something is done to stop so many minorities, the Blacks and Hispanics getting shot daily, coming and going to jail in prisons and even worse, ending up dead in record numbers across the country! I'm doing my part and have joined forces with a great new prison company, Special Miracles, LLC, located in Cincinnati, Ohio. They help inmates and their families with gifts, reentry for inmates, discounted services for incarcerated parents, and much, much more! I'm working with them in creating good content and services they can promote to parents with at risk children and at risk teens to help keep our youth safe and free from coming to jail and prison! If you would like to learn more about what we are doing, email me at MrL.Love01@gmail.com, and also read my blogs at the email listed above! God bless! Mr. Love (smile)

PRAYER DOODLES

I’m so excited to be on the site and for the chance to share so many things with you; poetry, songs, blogs, testimonies, and artwork, all containing blessings I experienced during my incarceration. The Hebrew word for blessed is “asre” and its definition doesn’t refer to only good things, but that we are “blessed” in that we live under the guardianship and faithful care of the Lord, no matter what the circumstance. Keeping that in mind, the first artwork I would like to share with you is something I call a “prayer doodle”. I call it this because I draw them while I’m praying, and certain Scriptures, phrases, and pictures take form as I doodle. I usually pray for a specific circumstance or person, and I’m always amazed whenever I receive confirmation from the people I pray for, or when I gain new insight into a situation. He has spoken to me many times before through these drawings. This prayer doodle, titled “Thanks and Praise” was initially made with Thanksgiving in mind. But there’s a story behind it: As I was drawing it, I was praying and fasting for a very bad situation in my cell room. The situation escalated into a violent, stressful ordeal. So imagine, as I was drawing this I had my headphones on blasting Christian radio (KLOVE and KAMB), remaining calm, peaceful, and praising God, while my roommates (seven other women), were fighting, screaming, and cussing at each other. At one point, a roommate started to verbally attack me and provoke me. But with strength that came from God alone, I was able to ignore her and not fight back, which is one of the hardest things to do in prison. People often mistake meekness for weakness. But PRAISE GOD, by keeping my peace and not retaliating, the Lord blessed me greatly and molded me more into His likeness. Most of all, it gave glory to God!!! During this trying ordeal, I felt the tangible presence of God; His comfort and love and His words encouraging me. These words came to me just as I was going through this difficult time. “Bearing your circumstances bravely--even thanking Me for them—is one of the hardest forms of praise. This sacrifice of thanksgiving rings golden-toned bells of joy throughout heavenly realms. On earth, your patient suffering sends out ripples of good tidings in ever widening circles.” This prayer doodle is the result of praising God in the midst of tribulation, giving thanks in all circumstances, and offering the sacrifice of praise. I pray you see the beauty in it, as I had experienced God’s power through it.
