My name is Michael Derrick Gibson and I go by my middle name “Derrick”. I am 36 years old and have 2 beautiful sons, ages 18 and 4. Unfortunately I am missing a great deal of their lives for making poor choices in the past. But I do not live in the past, so I am presently working on improving myself spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally for the future. I spend my time back here trying to learn and grow as a man of God, so that I may be a positive light to other inmates in a place filled with darkness. I enjoy reading, writing, working out, playing sports and playing chess as daily activities. I have a wonderful family that has stuck by my side and I thank God for them daily. I plan to show them how much they mean to me by changing my old ways and becoming a productive citizen upon my release…as well as the dad that both my sons need and deserve.
You realize who really cares and what matters most when you are behind these walls. Through prayer I come to this site seeking a friend, but I am open to more if it is the Lord’s will. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.
