Strong Passion

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.

Deep Thoughts

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.

I was always told by my Grandfather, “The only man who never makes a mistake is the one who never does anything, and you never lived until you’ve experienced love”.  His message to me was never give up and chase your dreams, no matter how many mistakes you make along the way.  But money and success alone won’t bring you happiness.  Love is what makes you happy.  Family is the bricks, and love is the mortar that holds the bricks together. We all know there’s sides of love, because what makes you smile could also make you cry.  So ladies, please understand this- God made Eve for Adam’s rib to signify that a woman’s place is at a man’s side.  She was not made from his spine, so it was not intended for her to be behind him when they walk through life.  Nor was she made from his feet, so it’s not his place to walk over her.  So please know your place in life because only together can you achieve anything in life, because a woman will always make her man better.  If there on the same page and working as partners in life with her standing strong by his side and he’s man enough to listen when she informs him on her intuition. So know your place and power is the first step to finding love and respect and I wish you the best in your pursuit of happiness.

I've learned that I have the power to cause a certain situation.  I also have the power to change it for the better.  That’s why the more things I'm willing to see myself as being responsible for, the more positive power I’ll have…

Though responsibility is a serious commitment, it is by no means a burden because the more responsibility we assume, is it true, the more control have over our own lives?

Is it fair to have to take responsibility for things that aren’t our fault?

No, yet when we do, we put in place the best strategy for moving forward.

The alternative to taking responsivity is to allow ourselves to be a victim.  Though we may take comfort in blaming our troubles on others, by doing so we lose the power to put those troubles behind us.

The choice of taking responsibility always comes down to this…Do we want to be a victim, or do we want to be in control?

Beloved, step forward and take responsibility…That’s the way to take positive, powerful control…That’s also how we preserve over integrity.

So are school shootings a certain price we pay for a certain level of liberty?

Is the right to bear arms unalienable as some believe the declaration of independence subject?

Is this right endowed by God?

Or Bestowed by the government?

Should we allow the criminal conduct of a few to be the catalyst for the infringement of any right protected by the construction?

“The Lizard and the Eagle”

Part of us wants to fly, another part is terrified of that and wants to be comfortably on the ground, preferably under a cozy rock!

Let’s call this fear-driven part “The Lizard” and the growth driven part, “The Eagle”.

The Lizard is all about here and now – change is scary! The Lizard isn’t creative, so it can’t see how better can come and resists growth. It wants to freeze up, posture, fight, run away and be distracted. Anything but personal freedom as your source of meaning. Hedonism, fantasy, drama, tribalism, fundamentalism – these belong to the Lizard.

The Eagle is self-mastery. Owning yourself, so you stop slaving to everyone and everything else. It’s facing risk. It is about making dreams into realities, moved by the vision your highest self. Gratitude, joy and courage belong to the Eagle.

So which rules you?

These terms illustrate the differences between those who choose to live more each day and those who choose to die more each day.

We’re driven from within by our chosen focus – do we believe in our abilities and potential? Have we accepted the false gospel of self-doubt? It’s true that “What you see is what you get”…but where you look is what you’ll see! You can look wherever, so you can get whatever.

Don’t get frustrated – be patient. Stay motivated because Your Best Is Still Ahead! Let the Lizard hide under rocks – and You choose to fly, fearless Eagle.

Prison Ways

The first 14 years down here were by far the darkest of my life.  Not being able to see parole until 2031, being surrounded by others with considerable large amounts of time like my own and never hearing of anyone making parole, knowing that my parole could be denied for the nature of the crime or because the victim’s family protested, I slipped into the mainframe that “This is it, there’s no light at the end of the tunnel", and so I gave up on a world I was no longer a part of and focused my energy on the environment I’m in.  The administration did allow those of us with large time to participate in education or vocation so that energy was focused on negative behavior that was already established in prison.  I had allowed myself to be involved with occurrences that now haunt me, that is on my file, following me throughout my sentence and keeping me from being able to place myself in better situations to prosper and do my time easier.

Although I never supported the idea of the negativity that was established, participating gave me a sense of belonging, the sense of putting forth effort towards a community.  It wasn’t the lifestyle I have ever experienced before and looking back it certainly wasn’t very creative.  I’ve looked back and asked myself, “Why couldn’t we make our life easy, without the constant friction in the air that we fed off of, becoming tougher off of?  Why couldn’t we help each other up, to learn or team up and overcome the adversity we brought on ourselves to cause our time here more uncomfortable than it already is?"

All of my time has been done on 3 different maximum security units and they’re all the same.  Every time I’ve been to “the hole”, to seg, dropped custody levels and been on lockdowns - it was always for something stupid.  Mostly because of guys not knowing how to conduct themselves around other people.  Poor conduct from others….and it sets everyone off.  Everybody wants to participate negatively, they want to do some punching or worse, making a name for themselves, to be heard, to be respected because that route for attention....is easy.

I’ve come across some guys who feel the same way I do about what’s going on and a lot of these guys are influential in this prison society and what we’ve done is created a program through the chapel here to work on reaching out to stop their behavior that brings us down by setting up events to get everyone and anyone involved.  We’re holding basketball, handball and volleyball tournaments and just being there to watch they have to participate by signing up first.  Through trial and error word will get out by how much fun we’re having doing this and others will eventually get involved.  We want everyone to get familiar with the good in everybody else.  Everyone has good in them and we’re trying to get them to share it.  That way we can cut down on the hostility.  No one wants hostility and those who act like they do need to be kept from being influential to others.

The more we interact with each other, the more we become outgoing and play positive roles in our environment.  That’s how the human brain works.  We’re social creatures, and to be imprisoned, mad all the time and being a sour grape is no form of rehabilitation.  We have to decide to do it on our own, and once we experience that breakthrough we can begin to grow.
