Hey! To anyone considering writing, please know that I will respond to every letter received. If you write and do not receive a timely reply, it’s because prison staff failed to forward your communication – a too common problem, frustratingly. So, should you write and not hear back from me, please try again, for it would be sadly uncool if the opportunity for us to be friends was lost.
One of the most dispiriting aspects of ongoing confinement I’ve discovered – in addition to the more obvious and immediate losses like family and old friends – is lack of relevance. It didn’t occur to me so much until having my “contraband” cell phone, or perhaps after it was confiscated, that being relevant in society and participating in the activities of the free world is quite missed. If only I could be around and interact with good people again, I would never cease to appreciate it. Normally I manage not to dwell on that particular loss.
Fortunately, the prospect of true, meaningful friendship just over the horizon alleviates most negatives – in incarcerated life or free. Very little is more rewarding or fulfilling than two people lifting each other up; providing each other with something to look forward to each day; sharing kind words, laughter and occasionally tears; and virtually guaranteeing the absence of loneliness. Maybe this will be the catalyst that introduces us to a lifetime of priceless friendship.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Take it easy.
Respectfully, it is crucial for taxpaying voters, to be involved with the trends and practices within the Prison Systems-Medical Services section. It is presumed bad form, to speak up for inmates incarcerated, but the truth is; without support from citizens, inmates with health problems could become a risk to the public health and safety upon release.
Each state’s budget appropriations committee in the Senate and House of Representatives fund the prison system money to care for the needs of incarcerated individuals, this money comes from the taxpaying voters, it’s the purpose of taxes. When states failure to monitor and regulate their prison system for waste and misappropriations of services and funds, it is injurious to all parties involved.
When inmates reproductive Health Care matters go untreated, for male inmates prostate health screening is important, among other related care, similarly situated, a female inmates gynecology care is important. For various cancers going untreated could lead to death of the patient and while incarcerated measures could be taken to solve the problem.
Suppose a Prisons Medical Services, abandoned the care of an inmate with such cancer; due to his release date was less than a year away – for this often does happen. Suppose this same inmates condition became worse and upon release sought care, but for his sickness was unable to manage a stable job - thus had to rely on other state services; and its respective cost to the taxpaying voter. Does it seem fair to either party involved?

Hello Write A Prisoner:
I thought hello would be more appropriate than greetings at the present time, although I realize that we haven’t yet shared any pleasant adventures together, I am hopeful that in the not too distant future, we will become friends, lovers or perhaps even both.
Needless to say, prison is certainly not the ideal meeting place for making new acquaintances. It would probably rank next to last on the list if not very last, if ranked at all. This is not to say at all that all people incarcerated cannot be redeemable parties and contributors to their communities if this were the case, and there were no second chances given to those who make missteps there would hardly be anyone left around.
I am looking for a reasonable companion to share my thoughts and interests with and if there is anyone willing to be a close crony you can contact me via email by going to GTL.com and sending me an email or via mail. I hope to hear from you soon.

Something that I realized over time while being incarcerated is that a majority of those I considered “friends” really aren’t. The first few months I felt important to a few people I know out there and that’s because random people I had known before being incarcerated contacted me and spoke to me even though we really didn’t talk much beforehand.
Once I hit a year and a half in, everybody slowly disappeared. Those that I would spend time with and hang out with on a daily basis on the outside, haven’t even contacted me this entire time I’ve been locked up. I think about that constantly and it really bothers me, I know it’s for the best though.
I’m down to about 18 months overall and a year to a hallway house (TC) out of 54 months. The little things mean the world to us as prisoners. Even if it’s a letter, a card once a month or so. It’s crazy to be in this position, it shows who your true friends are. People told me that they would write me, but once I got sentenced, I never heard from them again.
This time I have spent incarcerated has helped me to take a look at those people. If they can’t be someone to talk to during hard times, then they’re not a real friend. A person’s word is everything, especially when you’re locked up and that’s all you have. Everybody wants to be your friend when you’re doing good, but life’s a roller coaster and not everything good lasts forever!

As you’ve read in my profile, I am humble, laid back and most definitely a country boy! I’m a very family oriented man and am blessed that my family has stuck with me through the worst things you could go through. They have never given up on me, even during the times in the past when it would have been easier for them to give up. The things I’ve experienced in life have taught me that sometimes you have to go through the bad times to truly appreciate the good times and believe me, no matter how bad things may be, it could always be worse. I do my best to keep my attitude in check. I’m not a criminal and I’m not a “bad guy” but I have made some serious mistakes in the past that I have learned from and have to live with.
I have focused all my time and effort toward changing my life, taking every class and program available to me for self-help and improvement. I take that change seriously because my future depends on it. To be honest, I am looking for that “special someone” to build a promising friendship with during these last months of my incarceration with the intention of a lasting relationship outside of here. I am extremely loyal and brutally honest. Hoping to find someone who can see past my tough exterior to see my heart of gold and give me a chance at the future.
In A Dream
Yo – Yo – Yo…
There’s nights I dream of a chic I never seen nor met, feel me??? The type of dream that feel real as hell, know I’m saying??? Everytime this dreams change doing something different everytime. Some nights we walk the ocean side holding hands, other times she looks into my eyes seductively flirting with each other, naaa mean??? Feeling so right so good when we’re together, you hearing this???? You know….like the true essence of that soulmate I seek within and wake up feeling peaceful, positive and complete, sometimes find myself hugging my pillow, see what I’m saying??? I never met a chic who makes me feel that way, only through these dreams I’m able to experience the magical sensation of been with that significant other, you know???? So I’m trusting with all my heart that she exists and is out there, even opened an ad on Love A Prisoner.com expressing my heart to her where ever she may be at, feel me???? In my dreams there’s no drama, jealousy or arguments. She’s calm, patient, relaxed, understanding and freaky, you hearing me?? Some nights I ask the universe to allow destiny to bring her into my life, see I’m saying??? I realized there’s a subliminal message in these dreams, that chemistry and the spiritual connection is more powerful than the thickness of these prison walls, you heard??? Our soul cannot be imprisoned, feel me???

Yo what’s good?
It’s late night and I’m watching the Jimmy Fallon show, know what I’m talking about??? So dig this, the performing artist is Kesha and starts singing this song “Praying”, feel me??? At the beginning of the song I wasn’t feeling her but then she started to express this strong conviction and passion that I felt deep in my soul, naaa saying??? I start feeling her pain throughout her singing, finding myself thinking like Dang…. whoever made her write this song mistreated her, feel me???? So it made me think deeper, realizing that some men could make a woman feel broken and bitter, this made me feel angry within, I went to sleep with this on mind. So days went by and I realized further that some men are selfish and childish, naaa saying??? So I reflected on these revelations and concluded that I wouldn’t make a woman feel that way, you heard???? Instead I’d rather help a woman feel stronger, happier, fulfilled and complete. Uplifting and encouraging her with all my might. Be her teammate, friend, boyfriend, lover and dude all at once, naaa mean???? I’m a tough man here in prison and live amongst the coldest, feel me???? But I’m considerate to a woman’s heart and feelings, so I’m more understanding and laid back at this stage of experience, see I’m saying??? This makes me different than the average man, feel me????

Real & Mature
Yo – Yo – Yo…
Wut up bee? Check this…
I be peeping many dudes out on these TV shows (Married at First Sight, Love and Hip Hop) acting silly, talking like they looking for love, you know, but they ain’t ready. Feel me?? You see they start behaving immature, insecure and childish, see aaa saying ??? Wanna start arguments and competing with they chics, you know…. Putting them down and sheet… It takes a real to understand the ladies and know how to treat a woman, naaa saying??? Most of these young men ain’t there mentally, they lack self-discipline and control, unable to keep their emotions in check, while a mature man like myself is more patient and understanding to women. Feeling me? So check this, I know all ladies go through a lot and most men now days are not considerate to you, you dig??? I’m not perfect at all, I have flaws too, I’m a convicted felon who talks mad in here every time I don’t get mail, pictures, visits, naaa saying??? but I’m relaxed mostly no arguments, fights, drama, see saying???? I learned to value and glorify women after many years of imprisonment, as you heard before “you never know what you got till it’s gone”. So if you’re ready for the real deal get at yo boy, feel me??? No need to search elsewhere, lift your pen and write today, send pictures and phone number. Peace!!!

Jason Smith #1392943
Hello I am excited to see what this opportunity brings my way. I have gotten you here so let me tell you about myself and bring you some cheer. I really enjoy the out doors, I love to hunt and fish, work out, play softball. Traveling around and seeing other places has always been a passion of mine, and very adventurous. I never meant to stop at this vacation resort. I love to listen to all kinds of music but I prefer Country and R&B the most. When I get excited I am known to cut a rug and dance a little gig. I have two lovely children that I miss greatly ( a 8 year old son and a 5 year old little girl). I decided to give this a try as my friend has had some success on here. I am looking for a friendly connection that would like to share stories about life and help me ease my loneliness in my current situation. If you would like to contact me at JPAY.com using my name Jason C Smith and my inmate # 1392943. I look forward to putting a smile on your face, even being in this unthinkable place. Everyone needs a friend don't make me wait till the end.
Stay true to who you are because when your down and hoping to find hope in this hopeless world we live in, what you give is what you’re given. Sometimes your journey will get dark but stay true to you and see it through… I guarantee you in the end, you’ll see a brighter you. Dedication is the key to living your best life and there’s no days off…I know it sounds a little painful but it pays off.
