You will never know what a letter can mean until you have been where I am, or been through what I’ve been through.

I’m confined to a world behind four walls where no one can see me, and I receive no calls or visits.

Often I sleep and wake up alarmed, thinking that my family, loved ones, or friends may be harmed.

Thank God it’s just a dream as I come to my senses.  Then I look out the window and still see the...

I feel like out of sight, out of mind, in many cases it's true sometimes. But now I know, I don't have to be told, being behind bars, we're forgotten souls.

Dismissed from society and thrown in a cell, a nightmare worse than living in hell. Now when you think about your friends from before, you realize they don't even care anymore.

It's funny how your friend from the streets forget all about you when you're facing defeat....

My life before prison
was broken and sad.
The life of a drunkard,
A liar, a cad.
I've spit in the faces
Of family and friends,
And don't have the courage
To pursue their amends.
It's been four long years
Since I had my last drink,
Yet my actions still haunt me
Everytime that I blink.
Does the pain that I've caused
Deserve absolution?...

“Freedom”

When the skies are blue
The flowers will grow
The Earth turns and with it
You are my life to show
Forever free, you’re my heart to be sewn
From the raging waters, to the calming seas
I can stand by your side and forever be
Always a friend, always a king
By your side, to set you free
All you have to do – is say
“In Jesus...

Don’t Damn Me

You wouldn’t believe what I’ve seen
If you seen it in a dream
You couldn’t walk in these shoes
If I taught you to
I’m not tryin to mock you dudes
But I come off cocky rude
Wit a f*** you attitude
Plus a crooks smile
Oops I mean a crook’d smile
That drives the ladies wild
Now they plot to have my child
Then they damn me
Cause they don’t understand me...

Alive In A Grave

When the casket walls start to cave in kicking my @$$, I start singing out loud bout taking it all back. Heyah! Way Heyah! And it sounds like that. Fighting terrorism goes way back. Since 1492 to be exact. And my ancestors don’t speak English. In the spirit of Crazy Horse maybe this Native got a death wish. So French kiss the raised fist. I did this for y’all indigenous. Now I’m behind enemy lines...

BROKEN MOMENTS

There comes a time in each of our lives where we have
Experienced what is called, “broken moments”.  It was once
Said, “That without a foe, a person will never know their true
strength”.  From the exiting of the womb, until the grave, every
one of us will experience unfavorable circumstances that will
either strengthen our resolve or utterly destroy us. ...

A WAYWARD SAILOR


All is lost though it seems,

Without my compass it’s just dreams.

A wayward sailor, that I am,

With no lighthouse I’m on the lam.

 

The waves crash over against my hull,

Which forces me to take hold and mull.

I fasten the lines and batten down,

Praying with all my might not to drown.

A strong...

Inner Shine

Praying to God,

This is my clarity.

Inquiring boldly, “Lord my God’;

I see a woman of color.

Though I am alone, I have God.

Am I worthy of friends; what pleasure is in them?

Though men treat them as idols’

While many mistreat them.

To such I will not partake

Expose not my feathers

To increase my potency.

God, only send what I can handle...

SDVSTS

Stop Domestic Violence,
Stop the Silence,
Why is it silenced,
No hashtag for this one,
It’s still a loaded, gun,
Bang, bang, another baby stunned,
While he watches his mom
Being beat to death,
Another father laying his daughter to rest.
Who’s next!
Grab her hand and help her up,
Their minds are stuck,
Brainwashed and plucked,
The only voice she has is...

It’s Already Yours

If you need hope/I’ll pray for you
If you need help/I’ll fight for you
If you need an ear/I’ll listen
If you need understanding/I’ll understand
If you need trust/ then it’s a must
If you need a hug/come closer to me
If you need sex/then I’ll be your best
If you need money/I’ll give you my last penny
If you need...

Always live life to the fullest…
Don’t let go of hope
Hope gives you the strength to keep
Going when you feel like giving up.
Don’t ever quit believing in yourself
As long as you believe you
Can, you will have a reason for
Trying…
Don’t let anyone hold
Your happiness in their hands; hold it
In yours so it will always be within
Your reach.
Don’t measure success or

When I’m gone will you really care
If it’s said and done will you have a tear to spare
Life is over so fast, yet days go so slow
Why this really is, I think only God can know
So what’s to become of me, or more importantly of you
What do we do with our actions no one else can do
The greatest mystery of all, we have to figure out
Because when we die, there can be no doubt...

Make This Easier

You want to stop loving me
So, to make this easier
I’ll stow away the best of me
And call forth the worst of me
I’ll be the darkest
So, that whenever you close your eyes
Hopefully you won’t be able to see me
I’ll go the farthest
So, that whenever you’re alone
No matter how hard you try
You won’t be able to...

In Flux (Of leverage and levity)

To hate the soundless sounds,
Like sunburnt backs.
Jumping here and there to escape
The passive psychic sores;
That these micro-grains
Polluting my veins
In vain, have
Surrendered to a Slavic weeper’s woe
Pleading:
1,2,3,4,5,6 – flip a card.

Inebriated by the toxic sounds –
The grinding; the gnashing; the pound(ing) of
The fear...

Focused on doing the time, just not to lose my mind, something about the struggle, is so define, so the love is hard to find, imagine searching and clawing for every nickel and dime, raised in a concrete jungle, all while doing time, so many tears, but unable to cry. I tried time after time, sometimes I feel I was built for this, picking loyalty over money every time cost me my life, but never again.

Phoenix Files Conflagration

Killing…Strangers…
I think…No I “Know” you don’t
Know me.
How could you? I’m only the same
Difference you thought was familiar
While thinking comes from not knowing.
I got your wheels turning and that
Hamster moving…
But you couldn’t know who I was but
To be where I’ve been is to...

Missing My Dad

Heard my Dad was in the hospital feelin’ bad,

the news of that made me feel sad...

Oh Dad I'm missing you.

Sitting here in prison not knowing my Dads condition,

how l wished my family would give me recognition...

Oh Dad I'm missing you.

The family came together to discuss taking my Dad off life support, ...

Fly Together
By: GRRGACHE

Baby don’t you worry
Every thing will be alright
Jus hold tight by my side
Together we’ll fly high
Above the mountain skies
Over oceans and around the world a thousand times –

Baby don’t you worry
Every thing will be alright
Jus hold tight by my side
Together we’ll fly high
Above the mountain skies
Over oceans and around the world a...

A freezing wind chills the air around the ice shrouded mound.
There at the pinnacle, a forlorn, dying oak stands tall,
Skeletal branches void of leaves clawing skyward abound.
Unloved and forgotten, yet refusing ever to fall.
Don’t doubt how I know of this desolate place dead as bone,
For the visage shaped by the bark is my very own.

Shackled within my eternal winter, inside I cry
For...

Native Nomad
By Daniel Thomas

Great Spirit shed light on my path second generation orphan, native nomad. Just a young man cub, raised without a mother’s love. The underdog nobody wanted to see win. Born in sin? No. But I walk a black road. Fugitive, no home on my homeland. Live so fast, they buried me alive. Nationwide, I was made to fight, before I knew what I was fighting for. Going back to my roots on the Powwow...

Untitled

When the time comes,
Will you say hello...
Open your arms,
Embrace me and welcome me home…

Can I sit and rest my feet
Quiet moments let them speak.

You were lost
Drifted away in the currents of the streams…

Admire My Taste Part 1

Here stands the woman of words of fantasies inquisition…She is more than special V.S.O.P. involved with me like a legend and fairy tale where her affection is more than beauty to my pain who is beast. Sledge hammer to my unbreakable, brokenness…from where did you come to illuminate what I couldn’t see in my soul reflection? Are you a special spectrum of shade in an elusive vessel?

ARE YOU LISTENING?

I have been lonely;
Locked away inside my cell,
I was so alone;

Then came, one day, love –
Entering my cell and heart,
Awakening me,

Bittersweet the change
Within me, my heart alive
Yet in agony,

Are you listening?
Seeing this computer screen?
Are you there at all?

I’m sending this out
A message in a...

The Love of the Season Autumn

In the crisp gentle wind of fall
You can see the beautiful brown autumn leaves big and small
Jack-O-Lanterns, bats and candy corn delight the children
But the biggest treat of all lies within them
A big smile across their face is what parents seek
To see their bright faces say “Trick or Treat”.

A time of Harvest, the season is of plenty
To...

The Love I Never Had

If I could, I would give you the love I never had
Growing up as a child, raised without a dad
I wish I could hold you, I wish I could kiss you
God, how much I miss you,
Watching you grow from jail is hard, communication is
Kind of scarce, it’s definitely difficult.
You’re growing a lot, you’re growing fast, I know it’s hard
Without your dad.

I wish I could...

“The Journey of Life”

It twists and turns
With mountains to climb
And fires that burn

Shaped at a young age
So vulnerable and pure
Life at full speed
Is how we must learn

The good times and bad
Is a part of it all
When climbing a mountain
Sometimes you will fall

With each step we take
Comes pleasure and pain...

Life will nip you on your heels and never charge your for thrills, 
A solution in itself like pills but you can never pay the bills, 
What if there were some trickery like the one that lacks between you and me, 
Good and evil spirits bickering but without the mask now you see, 
If only I didn't feel so alone, maybe I could break to through the stone, 
Bending metal in all shapes like...

Lost in Thought

They say I'm supposed to be in jail….living in hell…pacing back and forth in a cell waiting on mail my body may be trapped but my mind and soul will forever be free…..for I know me….connect on a level that is mental and emotionally…..the Sun, the Moon, the planets orbiting around one another is almost like my mind orbiting in clutter….at times I slip away…..thinking about that special someone turns my mind into warm...
