I never actually thought this situation out and that's probably why I'm locked up in the pen, unable to comprehend, the full scope of my decisions has me contemplating on the end, hindsight is the best sight and if I had another opportunity would I do all over again, it's sad that it took such a severe punishment to realize that hustling wasn't really my friend, and this is bigger than me hanging out at some party smoking, flirting or drinking gin, the state has taken parts of my life away that's impossible to get back.

I let my pen spill out--
It goes to work.
This isn't something that can be forced,
a unique choice of words
that all can absorb
and feel everything
that was meant to be felt.

From the pain I can no longer let dwell
to the healing in progress
that shall prevail.
Becoming emotionally ill
is something that I now tend to shake free from
I've learned helplessness isn't to be taken lightly.

Death used to frighten me.
At the same time, I often believed
that if death were to capture me,

After about 15 years of being away, I made it to the end of this time all to not get any time with you? To be robbed breast cancer> I can't do nothing about it, I knew I lost you by gut feeling... Not being able to talk to you due to me being in trouble at the time for tattooing, three days after by bday my heart wouldn't stop hurting... Nobody wanted to tell me, but everybody wanted me to know.

''Twin Flame''

Where are you twin flame?
It's been too long of a decade,
My soul has been spoiling into decay,
So how long shall our love expire delay.

Tears river down both cheeks,
and falls on the concrete,
And leaves a puddle for a mirror,
to remind me how lonely I am.

Dreams and visions are not enough anymore, by me settling for only the ghost of you,
I know there's no time in space.
But the happiness I finally get,
it feels like only seconds of embrace.

Wait a second.

I got on the wrong bus!
I KNEW the people putting chains on me weren't " Walmart welcomers" (they said they were)
but I was suspicious when they wanted a strip search..."hmmmmm"

A hollow house, a vacant chair,
A voice unheard, a weight to bear.
A longing gaze at laughter's gleam,
A silent, an empty dream.

All I will ever be is me I don't know how to be nothing else....
I was counted out my whole life and now I'm worth more than any amount of wealth...
All it took was understanding who I am, taking back my power, and living up to my potential...
Step into the lab w the god and I'll show you what I'm really into... P.E.A.C.E. ~TRUTH~

"POEM: Personal Overall Eternal Moments"

My tears have made me a stronger person and instead of letting them drown me in a bottomless ocean.

My sorrows instead have prepared me to face what will be my tomorrow

That is only defined by what fuels my heart and mind because now I know for sure the steps I walk or only mine!

When at one point of time I was blind. Lead y other's design falling far from grace until my goodwill became distorted.

Just A Dream

In your dream were we free?
Were we happy?
Were we invincible?
Were we okay just the way we were?
Did we need anything or nothing at all?

Did we see something new?
Go somewhere we've never been?
Was it a dream or a vision?
Was it something that one day might come true?
Was it something you want?

The "want" of a friend, the Spark that won't catch, on a cold winters night.

But the spark that catches, is the warmth of a new friend, adding value and meaning to one's life.

The greatest thing I could ask for, right now in my life is a friend.

For there is nothing else more encouraging than the company of someone you know cares about you just as much as you care about them!

So may our friendship encourage us both to prosper in our lives!

TRUE FEELINGS

Love is something that is rare to come across in this world in any place, to lose that special feeling is something that is truly hard to ever face.

Once you know that you have found the person who fills your heart, nothing in this world is worth letting it bring you apart.

Look into their eyes and tell them how much you care every day, also how there is nothing that will ever tear your feelings away.

It is truly how you feel it's what will in the future matter the most. Enjoy that special feeling and raise a glass and make a toast.

I am irrational
No proportion of my attributes
Defines me completely

Although the boundaries of me
Between what I never was
And what I can never be
Are concrete

Between them
I am infinite

Every night I pray for my soulmate.
Before I lay my soul to rest,
I imagine that perfect dress,
and me in a designer vest,
Holding hands looking into the most beautiful eyes feeling blessed,
with joy in my heart,
from butterflies flying around in my chest
I've prayed to God so many times,
testing my faith, hoping he navigate my dream girl to me,
While I'm still in this vulnerable state,
But my darkest days still don't define who I am.
The darkness just makes it easier to designate her love light coming in me.

Life is easy, life is hard, starring at old pictures were did I go wrong, living in a cell got me feeling like an animal, trying to get this freedom feels like its impossible, feel like giving up sometimes fall down to my knees, crying out to God saying lord help me please, falling in love had me chasing dreams, got my heart broken many times I wish that I could see,came out the trenches sad and cold hearted, tired of being poor I was hungry I was starving, left alone at home had to grow up on my own, eating out of trashcans that became the norm, kicked all my life could never catch a break

Don't chose me. If you are timid and shy, afraid to touch. Afraid of taking risk. Don't follow me in the dark because there's passion in the midst. Such pleasure's born for those the Heavens we could share. Because I'll steal your heart and capture your soul if you chose me. So, don't chose me! If you fear the excitement and thrive in normalcy. Envy, suspicions, inhibitions are forever gone from me. This spirit, I possess will serenade your lonely heart. Inspired by your love, if you can trust me in the dark.

O'mail man, please don't pass me by,
Don't you know I want a letter or two,
Just like these other guys?
I have gone days, even weeks,
But never months where my name
You fail to speak.

O'mail man, please don't pass me by.
Darkness has always flooded my quarters,
But mail has always offered
The slightest shimmer of light,
Even those built on false hope,
Those that easily fall into
A rubble of lies.

In shadows deep where time stands still,
I dream of freedom, hills to climb at will.
Behind these bars, my heart takes flight,
In hope's embrace, I find my light.

Days stretch long, like endless roads,
Yet in my mind, a seed of hope explodes.
I see the sun beyond these walls so gray,
Believing in tomorrow, I find my way.

Each passing hour, a whisper of change,
In patience woven, a life rearranged.
For though confined, my spirit soars,
In dreams of open skies and open doors.

She is a hurricane.
She is a ray of light. 
She blooms wild and shines bright. 
She is a lightning bolt. 
She is crisp morning air. 
She is everything and everywhere. 
My ideal woman.....

Should I be ashamed regarding my refusal to condemn dad for his insistence on introducing me to Weed and Acohol at the age of 7 ?
Today with the thought: FOLLOWING ORDERS THAT I AM IN HOPES WILL APPEASE
I didn't know when I opened the can I'd also open a trapdoor that I'd spend the next 43yrs falling through
Dad is in a better place

The Walls Within
Original Poem by Joseph Julian

We all have walls, some higher than others
We guard our hearts from reckless selfish people
But we learn to let the light in
And it soaks deep within our skin.

Right from the start you had my heart
From the beginning to the end, it will stay
Throughout the states, cities, and Town
All the ups and downs.

Whatever life brings and all.
Those kinds of things God someone to hold
And never let go

Obstruction of justice, but then I ask,

What’s been obstructed?

And whose justice has been violated?

If I recall correctly, the last time that I checked, it was just – us.

Us meaning the souls that have been lost to the system.

The misguided who weren’t provided for,

the misjudged who when trapped in difficult situations didn’t budge,

the mischievous, the misbehaved

who could care less about the grave.

Simply a reactionary manchild who was only taught to be brave

and the misunderstood

who did what they could.

Freedom will not come Today,
this year Nor ever 
Through compromise and fear. 

I have as much right 
As the other fellow has to stand 
On my two feet 
And own the land. 

I tire so of hearing people say, 
Let things take their course.
Tomorrow is another day. 

I do not need my freedom 
when I’m dead. 
I cannot live on tomorrow’s bread. 
Freedom Is a strong seed
Planted In a great need. 

I live here, too.
I want my freedom 
Just as you.

Believe in yourself
And all that you are
And know that
There is something inside you
That is greater than any obstacle
Faith and hardwork
Can change any circumstances
Know that you are loved
And you are not alone
As long as you have
God on your side
There is nothing
You can’t overcome

Being illegally incarcerated is a crime against my mind body and soul . How can I stay strong when I have no resources to replenishment. How can I stay humble living in a concrete jungle. My atmosphere is anger, danger, and fear. Some express sadness through tattoo tears. Hope is something wished for that doesn't exist, just as mentioned it doesn't make sense but my illegal incarceration is paying the judges rent. A ponzy scheme is the America Dream getting paid off of illegal incarcerations is the AMERICA'S GREED. It's not fair, when will this nightmare end.

Winds of fate destined
Two souls by chance collide
Tendrils become entwined
From love they cannot hide
Forces push against
Wedging a separation
The lovers find a way
Feeding their desperation
Tempest arrive again
Reding fabrics being
The two souls wander
Still living but without feeling
A spark in the night
The trapped one does see
Emotions overwhelm
So he reached from bended knee
He shall waver not
Waiting for the one chance
Memories are still clear
