PRISON RELEASE

I have been incarcerated 15 years fighting these courts for my freedom. I have been preparing myself mentally to start a new beginning out there, finding myself continuously plotting my moves and reinforcing my plans, feeling ready to enjoy the touch of family and friends. It’s been eight years that I haven’t been allowed a contact visitation and I sometimes wonder how does it feel to be hugged or kissed. I have grown to suppress that need for physical touch that people out there in society take for granted. I haven’t always thought or felt the way I do now, before I came to prison I was addicted to trouble and chaos. I thought of myself as a ruthless gangster, but after 15 years in prison I have spent half of my time alone, isolated inside a prison cell, enabling me to focus on myself and dig deep inside me to find understand who I am as a person and as a human being. I have been educating myself by reading and studying Social Science, Philosophy, and many self-help books trying to become more conscious and aware, feeling that in continuously evolving in many ways (mentally, intellectually, emotionally, and physically). I believe life in this world is not easy and I’m constantly looking for answers that I still don’t have. But I discovered one thing…to succeed in this world we must continue on our journey and confront obstacles. I’m optimistic about starting a new life and look forward to getting situated out there.

Here’s a bit of my writing… Thor could play amongst wild brambles all day without fear of them ever hurting him. All of ten, the youth’s flame-hued locks were disorderly, and not very long. Those sapphire eyes were as intense as bellicose skies, and he had an excellent club he carried about for hunting game—or being hunted by it. Father often had to spend his time in inter-realm conquest, and when he did visit was to deliver the bloodstained spoils and severed heads of his enemies. I cannot stress to you enough that this resulted in a rather fierce little soul. His mother is what you would refer to as a witch or a wizardess, both which originally meant wise one anyways. She frequently manipulated the bushes, growing them at thousands of times their normal speed. They would form crudely stubby war hammers for Thor to use that were surprisingly tough. Only elvin-flame would destroy them… The goblin was a few feet tall, but it snarled with a frightening braveness. The tiny bit of blade it carried dripped with a strange-colored liquid, and Thor understood that it would bring about an agonizing reaction. Its thews were like bunches of wires, and the leathery hide looked impossibly tough. The thing sprang lie an arrow shot by the jotun-archer Thjazi. Startled, Thor flailed an arm to protect himself. Pain zipped across it and hot blood sprang free, but Thor was not as badly hurt as he initially believed. The thing cavorted in mockery beside a large rock, an infantile snicker coming from its mouth. Thor’s weakness quickly became rage. He came for the goblin slowly, hands held high. It leapt, but he swatted it earthwards. He jumped forward and pinned the little goblin under his tall boot. It thrashed possessedly, growling in fey-language. Thor had a knife of his own, and he severed the apricot-sized head. Thor looked at his arm that bore the numerous slashes form the goblin’s jaws. He picked up the blade and rubbed some of the venom on his knife. Then he strung the head on a leather thong holding a row of similarly-grisly trophies, softly singing a war chant… Read the first saga in my Son of the Earth series, written under the pen name Ari Tyrsson, at https://smashwords.com/books/view/568526 C.2015 Ari Tyrsson

GANGSTER GIRL

Gangster Girl I know a girl who is the best and the worst. She gave me a year I never expected or really wanted. She surprised me at a time in my life when I thought I was past surprises. I was far from home. I was very disappointed and I felt like climbing up on that ledge. Then out of nowhere she walked into my life. That beautiful black hair, those beautiful black eyes, that heartbreaking smile. She was amazing. When she walked into the room you knew something had changed. She was that girl. The one you always heard about. Within a minute we were friends. Not long after we were more. How much more I never really knew. She kept me guessing. One day I was her favorite. The next day her least favorite. She would look at me with so much passion and love in the morning and so much scorn and resentment in the afternoon. I started to believe she was crazier than me. And as we all know, my sanity is a distant memory. But how is it possible for a girl with such a big heart to break mine time and again and still love me so much. She truly believed as I did that fate brought us together and she knew, like I knew, that any day could be our last. You always asked me how I would deal with going from always being in your life to never being in your life. Would I stand or would I fall. Well my Gangster Girl, yes I remember how your face lit up when I called you that. Just like when I showed you the pink heart. Most of the time you couldn’t’ mask your emotions like you thought you did. I went through a big loss the day I left you. I will never forget the look in your eyes but I bounced back like I said I would. I was back on my feet and being the same guy you knew and loved. I can’t not be me. Sonny lives on. Like we always said, fate brought us together. Don’t forget the dreams. Same night, same moment, same us. I am happy we met. You made me feel like the man I am and will always be. Center stage personality, shine brighter than the sun, no man can compete. Women fall hard and they fall fast. Always Sonny, I went through a lot with you, the highest highs, the lowest lows. You would call me jealous but you went out of your way to make me jealous. Good times, best of friends, worst of enemies. But at the end of the day you did more for me than any other girl has or will. You’re the best and the worst Gangster Girl. We were so much alike that we could feel and hear each other’s thoughts. I will never forget that day you were walking behind me, looking for me. I turned and we found each other. I always knew you were there. You always knew where I was. We always found each other. I wish you the best. Stop being so hard on yourself, open the door, let someone in, you’re allowed to be happy. Save the world tomorrow, and I promise you like I have many times, I will stop taking shortcuts. I will stop making excuses all the time. My life is where you wanted it to be. I’m out here doing everything I can to show that change and progress are real. The last thing I told you as I looked into your eyes was, don’t ever forget me. You said you wouldn’t. If you keep your word to me, keep me in your thoughts and your heart. I will keep my word to you and keep doing my best. I will always stay focused on everything you taught me about being a better person. I can be that person Gangster Girl. Sonny is here and no one can change that. You did a really good job with me as we both know. You took a broken man and convinced him that life was not over. Life had actually just begun. We never know what is going to happen in the future you used to say. But I do know, always forward, always progress, always better. I will stop worrying about what’s going on in here and stay focused on what’s happening out there. So good luck and thank you for everything. I hope I will always be in your thoughts. Just to the right as I always was. Our memories will always be good memories. Sonny Always

WORTHLESS OBSESSION

WORTHLESS OBSESSION! I was brought up in a Christian environment, yet this was a very strict parental upbringing which kind of isolated me from the world as a whole. This merely led to my curiosity being aroused as to why I was so confined within, a so called gospel umbrella. Well, I soon learned the hard way that playing with fire will definitely burn one. My life from the age of nine took a continuous downward plunge into the abyss of sin after my father died. The original gripping sin of my life was sexual sin which to this day has caused me much grief and has led to me being locked away on death row. The devil of course has other devastating tools available and before long I was involved in selling drugs, guns and hot cars. This wiped out my sense of decency for a period of 25 years. During this time of special blackness, I was in and out of various sorts of perversions and what-not…though I was completely convinced that everything was all right with my life, spiritual blindness had a severe grip on me. I managed to marry during this mixed up time which ended on a sad note. My wife died and I certainly felt the world was turned upside down. I didn’t seem to take this fully to heart though I continued in my downward depravation, if this could be so, considering I was already at my seemingly lowest point…I wasn’t To Be Continued!

EQUALITY

WHY IS RACE STILL PERTINENT IN OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?...... Life today shouldn’t be about how many followers one has on social media. With so many pressing social issues-How does the vision become re-energized? As I offer my thoughts, please understand, I have a broad pro-diverse position on life in general. Is our American Dream just a bunch of malarkey?, or do we truly understand what defines its existence? Blue eyes and blonde hair doesn’t represent this dream at all. Thinking selfishly on that plane, only ostracizes the conscious mind leaving it vision jaded. Speaking thru the struggle of an Afro-American, equality defines one’s ability to honestly dream, and only thru the spigot of education does equality balance the playing field. I personally, welcome all cultures inside the intimacy, of my self-restructured conscious state. In gluttonous fashion I devour all outlets and channels of knowledge, which allows one’s trajectory to display intellect. Not just certain perspectives, but in general. The thing I enjoy in my life today is learning more about other cultures, which will manifest thru the rules of engagement. In the event you’re reading these set of thoughts, I challenge you to step out of your routine and or that cubicle. For every theory there’s an opinion, and for every questions answers laced with facts surface. Are you open to dig deeper into the residue of race charged ignorance? If so, I’m patiently waiting to debate.

POEMS AND OTHER!

If you enjoyed the poem, the entirety of what I have composed is on www.PrisonsFoundation.org. Look under the "Poetry Book: category; "Collecting One's Thoughts" and my name. I also wrote a screenplay. Select the "Screenplay" category; "A Moment of Surrender"; and my name. Perhaps they may be worthy of publication. Thank you for your time, attention, and assistance! Best of Wishes....Luke M. Arabzadegan

PRISON LIFE

POLITICAL PRISONER....... I have been accused of having a negative influence over prisoners and targeting correctional officers who have been caught tampering with inmates incoming mail here at Pontiac Correctional Center. I am a fair and respectful man who doesn’t tolerate disrespect of any type. In the past I have been charged with beating a couple of officers who wouldn’t stop messing with my incoming letters after several attempts of asking them in a civilized way. I was transferred to a supermax prison in 2008 under false allegations of being a known gang leader and ordering the assaults of rival gang member. My contact visits were taken from me and I was not permitted to use the phone. All this harassment stems from my illegal incarceration and it’s been getting worse since my return to court where I intend to establish my innocence, and present new evidence that prosecutors hid during my trial. I believe these correctional officers don’t know any better and are under instructions. I’m not one to ask for sympathy or to whine but I only ask people, like yourself, who are interested in writing me to keep this in mind in case you write me and do not get a response. Don’t think it’s me and please don’t quit so easily. I need fierce and courageous people to be friends.

ABOUT ME

About Me...... I was born in Chicago, Illinois in a neighborhood known as Little Village. My parents are Mexican and because of it, I speak Spanish perfectly. I’m the second oldest of five. My little brother is incarcerated too in the same prison as me. We are together on the same case. I wasn’t always the good son and I became a member of a Chicago street gang. All my homeboys call me Whack-O, but my brothers and sisters call me Arty at home. I was raised to be a respectful and courageous by my father and I believe in being real to my homeboys and having honor. I’ve a lot of enemies who dislike my principles and views and I’ve often been falsely accused of being a gang leader and of ordering the assaults of rival gang members or correctional officers. There are prisoners who lie and snitch behind my back, only due to personal dislike for what I stand for. Yet I’m fair minded and peaceful only when I’m treated the same in return. I’m against violence but I won’t walk away from it. Most of the time I’m having a good time with my homies and trying to avoid trouble. I like to joke around and make other laugh, but you know here in prison I have to think and act like a convict. This is something I wanted to share with you. Take care and write me.

Recently a friend of mine who has three life sentences without parole came back from a bench warrant on an appeal/writ of habeas corpus I did for him. Currently we are waiting on an answer from the higher court’s approving the trial court’s recommending vacating his convictions. It looks good but I know it is far from over. With new laws in Texas it is making it harder for prisoner’s dealing with the criminal justice system to obtain relief. Within the last decade Texas has implemented the punishment of life without parole not just for murder but for other designated crimes. According to a recent Texas Monthly Magazine article I read approximately one hundred prisoners receive this sentence within a given year. Although life without parole has significantly decreased the assessment of the death penalty it has caused Texas a tremendous problem. How is it to handle the influx of inmates that have no possibility of ever being released? Do people really believe no one should ever get a second chance? Either way I am glad I have the opportunity to help people on their legal work in here. There is no expression I can relay of how it feels to see a person’s reaction to the state conceding to your argument that your friend’s life sentence should possibly be vacated.

As I said in my profile, it has been 12 years since I have been locked up. I’ve been out of tune with the outside world and I felt it’s time to holla out and meet some new friends. I would like to say I have pondered life and now understand the true meaning of life, but I still have more questions than answers. Maybe somebody that reads this can help shed some light to my unanswered thoughts. I don’t mean to be so deep, I’m just on a quest for wisdom. My past life had some strong points but there were things missing. There are some things time only can produce. Learning the virtue of patience has been the hardest thing so far for me. If there is anybody out there that would like to comment on this, please feel free to. Until next time. Sincerely, Jose C. Reyes.
