July 3 2022

This is my first time writing a blog, I’m not really sure what it’s supposed to be about so I’m just going to tell you a bit about what’s been going on with me.

I’ve kept a pretty good work out routine for the past 30 months, but lately I’ve tried to discipline myself by waking up at six for my work outs, not fun! I’ve got a bit over two years until I’m eligible for parole. I came into the joint a kid and I’ll come out a man. There have been some hard lessons that I’ve had to learn, I’m too stubborn to learn them any other way so some good did come out of all of this. My tattoo dream is closer than before, I can’t wait.

I hope this will suffice for my first entry, you’ll hear from me again soon.

Until next time.

" I Believe"

By: Robert Morris

I believe that Black men are being targeted. Bombarded!

I believe that as a Black man, I am being tormented.

Even from the very start, I believe, I believe there are so many people of the Brown & Black race that are being forced apart. Divided & Conquered! I believe there are so many Black & Brown people who are broken. Mentally slaughtered! Brace, ethnicity shouldn't ever be a priority. Especially when they say everything & everyone is made equal, in the eyes of the majority the Almighty Supreme being. Never shall we be a minority! Though I have scientific proof that the Asiatic Black man of this world was indeed the first-ever, to be found. I still believe that "am" shall be presented equally for life is of luxury, pleasure & sound.

We are protected by the United States Constitution's 14th Amendment liberty interest, created equally and for all. But these equals should be viewed worldwide showing no disparity. No differential and all for one cause. I do believe in many. But the question is: "Do many believe in all? What do you believe in? I believe in the Rise, from the sleeping dead. Woke and never shall we fall!

I believe... I believe that these are human laws.

I believe...

If ever asked what I thought was impossible, years ago, I would have answered, coming to prison. Now, prompted with the same question. I never thought I would   answer that I am safer in prison, as a prisoner than the people outside of prison. When did we reach a point as a nation where gun violence became the norm. When did we become jaded to hearing the news of gun violence? Who is to blame? Is it the liberals or the conservatives? Is it the Republicans or Democrats? Major media would lead you to believe it is the fault of one side or the other. Yet, I believe it's less political than that, a simpler answer. The ongoing problems this nation faces start with the attack on, and degradation of, the American family. If the establishment of the family breaks then, the outward society that surrounds it, falls as well.

As parents shaping the values, and beliefs of the future generation, it's our responsibility to teach our children right from wrong, good from evil, and light from the darkness. As parents take a united front and have the courage to teach "hard lessons" our children will grow and prosper then the fruit of our labor will be seen in their lives.

We can still right our wrongs and learn from the mistakes of those who have gone before us. Take Rome, for instance, the greatest civilization known to man, what happened? Simple, a house divided against itself cannot stand.

There’s just enough light illuminating outside my window for me to type my mind’s inner most thoughts. Thirty-three years in prison has given me so much insight and understanding.

I placed an ad in hopes of meeting someone kind, funny, and honest. Someone who can also help me navigate my way through this new technology. We were recently provided tablets to use for videos, text messages, phone calls, games, and a lot of other fun stuff.

You can easily contact me by visiting the (Getting Out) app. Just look up my name. You can send me texts, videos, pictures, and video visits.

I admit that I am lost. My idea of a mouse was a small rodent. Why, I thought a megabyte was some kind of chicken nugget. I celebrated my 57th birthday this week. I wish I could have received a card or visit.

I won first place in the Mule Creek poetry contest. I have enclosed the poem and another picture of me. I am writing a book about my life and my involvement with the gangs.

I am a proud member of the Thug ministry. Thug is an acronym for “To Help Understand God”.

I lost my mom in 1995. Since then, I have dedicated my life to helping to make places like this unnecessary for kids who are at risk. I love writing long letters the old fashion way. Everything is so fast these days that everyone stopped writing.

As I said in my ad, I will answer any question you may have. Please contact me by visiting the app (Getting You can write me, text me, and send me emails (GTL) or (Jpay).

I had some things I was thinking about, so I decided to pick up this pen and paper and write about them.

Throughout life we all seek to be connected to others, intimate connection….we all want someone to validate our emotions, how we feel, our thoughts, our need for attention and love, and although we crave this from somebody and never will be just anybody!

It’s crazy because we are limited to how many people we meet in a lifetime. It’s my opinion that we meet who we are supposed to meet and that it isn’t by chance.

For a long time, I didn’t think like this, I took a lot of these opportunities for connection for granted. As I’ve grown and my values became more clear to me I understand the value in meeting new people, especially when I think about the world and how many people are in it….millions, and out of all those people we only meet who we meet.

I’ve put myself out there on this website in hopes of connecting with others, whether it be through a blog or through my artwork, or by expressing myself and my thoughts through a letter.

If anything I’ve said here has caught your eye or made any sense of connection with you, please feel free to contact me and let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading this. Hope to hear from you soon.


Women Deserve Better

Women Deserve Better

As a child I remember watching in horror as my father would consistently, emotionally, and physically abuse my mother. What I did not understand then was seeds of violent beliefs were being formed in my mind. Today, I understand healing in any capacity begins with taking responsibility. My anti-domestic violence movement begins with me. Women deserve better.

I was seven years old when I first viewed pornography. My addiction became progressively worse. What I did not understand then was pornography offered me an illusion of intimacy, fueling my codependency and promiscuity with women. Today, I view women as co-equals deserving of decency and respect. My anti-pornography movement begins with me. Women deserve better.

I remember emulating my older male influences in whistling and yelling out derogatory terms, as women walked by. What I did not understand then was these experiences fueled my dehumanization and objectification of women. Today, in honor of women, I choose to exercise self-control. My “anti-locker room talk” movement begins with me. Women deserve better.

Understanding who I was prior to my incarceration came about through introspection. Allowing my inter-child to be heard and validated has been instrumental in my healing process. I do so because women deserve better.

Today, crimes against women are prevalent worldwide. Instead of living in shame, I am now a proponent for change. It’s about equality, healthy communication, and respect. Women deserve better.
