“THE PAST IS THE PAST”

GREETINGS WORLD…

ITS BEEN A WEEK OR SO SENCE I’VE LAST POSTED, BUT SAY LIFE CRAZY SOME TIMES, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOUR IN A ENVIORMENT THAT AT ANY MOMENT CAN JUST LOSE CONTROLL…AND THERE YOU STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF SOME PRISON DRAMMA, THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU, BUT YET S*** CAN GET REAL, REAL FAST SO YOU BETTER BE READY TO GET YOUR SELF OUT OF WHAT EVER COMES YOUR WAY…A CONFLICT FREE ENDING IS ALWAYS THE GOAL FOR ME…

FOR SOME REASON, SOME TIMES THERES A MISCONCEPTION THAT EVERY THING IN PRISON ENDS IN VIOLENCE ( has to, needs to or should) THATS CRAP… BUT THEN THATS ME, BECAUSE I AM TRIED OF THIS LIFE STYLE, AS I HAVE GROWN INTO SOME ONE WHO WAS TOLD HE WOULD NEVER BE NOTHING, BUY YET HERE I STAND A MAN WHO HAS MADE THE VERY BEST OUT OF NOTHING…

TODAY I AM READY TO LIVE LIFE AS THE MAN I KNOW I AM, AND WAS BORN TO BE… WITH KNOWING AND UNDERSTANDING THAT LIFE IS FULL OF TEST, AND THEY ARE ON EVERY CORNER, WAITING FOR US ALL, WAITING FOR US TO FALL, AND NOT GET UP… I KNOW THE DOWN FALLS OF LIFE, AS I HAVE LIVED IN THE STREETS SENCE I WAS 7, YEAH THATS RIGHT 7 YEARS OLD…SO I WAS EXPECTED TO FAIL…

BUT GUESS WHAT WORLD, I AM STONGER THEN EVER, AND I AM READY TO LIVE FREE FROM MY ” PAST” AS THE PAST IS JUST THAT THE PAST!!!, AND I HAVE FINALLY COME TO EXCEPT THAT…AND TO BE GOOD WITH IT…AS IT MADE ME WHO I AM TODAY… SOME ONE TO BE LOVED…

SO IF YOU HEAR ME AND FEEL ME THEN… GET AT ME…

”GREETINGS WORLD”

ONCE AGAIN ITS ME, WITH A LITTLE SOMETHING SAY TODAY…

FIRST OFF LET ME TAKE THIS TIME TO SAY THAT WHO EVER IS READING MY POST’S, THAT I AM GREATFUL THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO READ WHAT IT IS THAT I HAVE TO SAY…

SECONDLY, I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A HAND TO THE FREE WORLD IN FRIENDSHIP, AS I HAVE STATED IN ONE OF MY LAST POST’S, I AM LOOKING FOR FREE WORLD FRIENDS TO HELP ME TRANSITION FROM THIS CRAZY, MADD WORLD THATS CALLED PRISON…

YEAH I KNOW IT MIGHT NOT WORK THAT WAY BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN KNOWN TO JUST SET BACK AND NOT DO ANYTHING, THUS I BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT ALL POSSABLITYS ARE ENDLESS AND NOT TO TRY IS TO REMAIN STUCK…

AND STUCK IS THE LAST THING THAT I NED IN MY LIFE, SO SEEING HOW I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH THIS CHANCE TO CONNECT TO THE FREE WORLD, I PLAN ON DOING JUST THAT, WITH THE HOPES THAT SOME ONE OUT THERE WILL HERE ME AND TAKE THAT CHANCE TO REACH OUT AND MAKE A FRIEND…

I’M HERE AND WAITING TO HEAR FROM SOME ONE OUT THERE, SO THAT I CAN HOPEFULLY CREAT A FIRM FOUNDATION OF FRIENDSHIP…

GET AT ME!!!

”IT’S REALLY NOT THAT BAD”

GREETINGS…

JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING FROM SOME ONE WHO KNOWS ALL ABOUT THE UP’S AND DOWNS…

YOU KNOW THAT SOME WERE ALONG THIS JOURNEY I LET THE PAST BE JUST THAT AND STOPED BEING MAD AT THE WORLD FOR PUTTING MY SELF IN THE POSSITION TO LOSE A LARGE PORTION OF MY LIFE…

SO I JUST REALIZED THAT THE ONLY THING FOR ME TO DO WAS TO START LOVING ME FOR ME, AND NOT FOR THE PERSON THE STREETS ME TO BE…AND IN DOING THIS I WAS ABLE TO LOVE OTHERS AND FEEL THE LOVE THAT THEY HAD TO GIVE…

I KNOW NOW THAT THERES NO GOING BACK IN TIME, AND THAT MOVING FORWARDS IN LIFE IS THE ONLY WAY TO DISCOVER WHO IT WAS THAT I WAS CREATED TO BE FROM JUMP STREET, BEFORE I ALLOWED MY TASTE FOR TAX FREE MONEY TO TAKE CONTROLL OF MY LIFE…

SO NOW I STRIVE FORTH EVERY DAY KNOWING THAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE, BECAUSE THERES PEOPLE IN HERE WHO WILL NEVER SEE THE STREETS, AND DISPITE THE FACT THAT I HAVE BEEN HERE LOCKED UP FOR 20+ YEARS, I HAVE A DATE AND ITS COMING UP SOON, 2031 IS REALLY NOT THAT FAR OFF…

ANYWAYS, I’M HERE.

REACH OUT TO ME AND MEET A FRIEND, AS I KNOW I WILL NEED SOME ON MY WAY OUT THE DOOR…

HOPE TO HEAR BACK FROM SOME ONE SOON…

NEVER GIVE UP

GREETINGS ONCE AGAIN…

THERE WAS A POINT IN MY LIFE WHERE GIVING UP SEEMED LIKE THE THING TO DO, BUT THEN MY INNER VOICE OF REASONING WOULDT LET ME QUIT OR GIVE UP…

YOU SEE I COME FROM THE STREETS WHERE LIFE IS NOT A GAME, AND FOR ALL OF THOSE OUT THERE WHO ARE TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND WAS RAISED IN THE STREETS TOO, THEN YOU KNOW THAT LIFE KNEE DEEP IN THE STREETS IS NO GAME…

SO I FOUND A WAY TO GATHER THE PIECES OF MY LIFE AND START PLACING THEM IN THE PLACES WHERE THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN FROM BIRTH, BECAUSE SOME WHERE AFTER BIRTH MY MIND DEVELOPED WARPED THOUGHTS ABOUT HOW LIFE WAS SUPOSSED TO BE… WHICH LEFT ME ON A FAST TRACK TOWARDS NO WHERE, BUT TO A LIFE COUGHT UP IN A TWISTED REALM OF REALITY…

SO FROM THERE I TRAVELED ON TO THE ECHELONS OF A VALLYS PIT WHERE I HAD TO BECOME SOMETHING LIKE A SPECIALEST AT ALL WALKS OF LIFE IN ORDER TO AVOID THE FEELING OF EVER WANTING TO GIVE UP…

AS I UNDERSTAND NOW THAT THE TERM “GIVE UP” IS NEVER TO BE USED WHEN FACING HARDSHIPS OF LIFE, AS TO GIVE UP IS TO TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT… SO HERE I AM WORLD, A PRODUCT OF THE STREETS, WHO MADE A LIFE OUT OF SOMETHING WHEN I WROTE OFF AT BIRTH TO FAIL, AND KNOW NOTHING BUT DEATH, GANGS, DRUGS, JAIL CELL, AND A LIFE IN THIS TWISTED THING SO MANY CALL “THE GAME” … BUT I MADE IT AND I FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHERE I’M HEADED…

YEAH I KNOW, ITS CRAZY I HAD TO GET HIT OVER THE HEAD WITH 42 YEARS BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO WAKE UP, BUT THE REALITY OF THE MATTER IS THAT I HAVE A LIFE FREE FROM ALL THE CRAP I WAS LEAD TO BELEAVE AT A VERY YOUNG AGE… AND NOT ONLY THAT, I HAVE A RELEASE DATE WHEN SO MANY OTHERS DONT, SO 2031, IS REALLY NOT THAT FAR AWAY…

ANYWAYS YOU ALL, LOVE LIFE AND WHAT YOU HAVE, BEFORE ITS GONE, BECAUSE NOTHINGS IN THIS LIFE LASTS FOREVER…

REACH OUT TO ME AND MEET A FRIEND…I’LL BE WAITING…

“LIFES A GIFT”

I SAY THIS BECAUSE BEING HUMANS WE TAKE LIFE FOR GRANTED, AND ITS NOT THAT WE DONT DESIRE TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST OR LIVE A LONG HAPPY LIFE WITH A WHITE PICKET FEENCE, CHILDEN AND THE PERFACT OTHER…YEAH OF COURSE MOST OF WANT THIS, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY HOW MANY OF US REALLY RESPECT,HONOR, CHAIRISH AND APPRRECIATE THE LIFE WE’VE BEEN GIVE, HONESTY…

HOW OFFTEN DO WE LOOK AT EVERYTHING AROUND US AND APPRECIATE WHAT GOD HAS GIVE US, AND THEN GIVE PRAISE AND THANKS TO THE ONE WHO MADE IT ALL POSSABLE…

I SAY THIS BECAUSE ALL MY LIFE I LIVE MY LIFE FULL SPEED AHEAD BELIEVING I WAS SOME BODY, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I WAS PLACED IN A SITUATION WHERE I WAS FIGHTING FOR ME LIFE, AND THEN AND ONLY THEN DID I CALL OUT TO GOD FOR THE HELP THAT I KNEW I COULDNT GIVE MY SELF…

AND NOW HALF WAY THROUGH THIS FIGHT I KNOW THAT I HAVE TO TAKE TIME OUT TO GIVE THANKS TO THE ONE WHO MADE THIS ALL POSSABLE…

SAY, YEAH YOU, TAKE A FEW SECONDS TO APPRECIATE THE AIR, SUN , MOON, STARS, ALL OR CREATION AND KEEP IN MIDE THAT ALL IT TAKES IS HIS WILL TO TAKE IT ALL FROM YOU IF HE SO WILLS…

I PRAY EVERY DAY TO MAKE IT THROUGHT THIS BECAUSE LIVING IN THIS MAN MADE HELL, TOMMROW IS NEVER CERTAIN AND I’LL NEVER GET THE CHANCE TO,BE MORE GREATFUL FOR THE LITTLE THINGS THAT LIFE HAS TO OFFER

PRISON LIFE

PRISON LIFE YOU ASK, YEAH THATS RIGHT….UNFORTUNITY THERE IS SUCH A THING…AND FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS I HAVE BEEN KNEE DEEP IN THIS CRAP, AND STILL YET DISPITE THE CHALLENGES OF PRISON LIFE I HAVE LEARNED TO HEAD INTO EVERY WAKING DAY HEAD ON…AS BEING WHO I AM I’VE COME TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE THESE YEARS OF ADVERSITY AS STEPING STONES…

STEPPING STONE INWHICH I HAVE PLACED IN POSITION TO ELEVATE ME TO THE NEXT/CORRECT LEVELE OF LIFE… A LIFE FREE FROM MOST OF LIFES DOWN FALLS, HEAD ACHES AND HARDSHIPS…YOU SEE MY LIFE BEGAN LAPPED IN THE CRADDLE OF THIS LIFE CALLED “THE GAME”, WHERE MY MIND DEVELOPED WORPPED AND TWISTED THOUGHTS ABOUT HOW LIFE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE, FROM THE VISIONS OF OTHERS…LIVE OR DIE, EAT OF BE EATEN, WIN OR LOSE, GET OR GET GOT… SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT I’VE LIVED THAT 9TH LIFE OF THE BLACK CAT AND WATCHED HELPLESSLY AS OTHERS HAVE TRYED BUT COULD NOT PREVAIL…

SO IN ALL ESSENCE I LEARDED AT A YOUNG AGE (7) HOW TO MAKE A LIFE IN THE GAME…SO FOR YEARS I PRACTICED THE HABBITS OF BEING THE BEST AT EVERYTHING!!! AS I LEARNED FROM DAY ONE THAT FAILURE WAS NEVER AN OBTION, SO I CAN BE CALLED ALOT OF THINGS BUT A FAILURE IS NOT ONE OF THEM…

SO PRISON LIFE IS RIGHT, AND I SAY THIS BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE WHO DONT KNOW THINK THAT PRISON LIFE HAS THE ABILITY TO CONTROLL ONES LIFE, WHEN AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU GET OUT LIFE WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT..THIS IS NOT MY LIFE..FOR I’VE COME TO UNDERSTANDTHAT THIS IS JUST A CHAPTER IN MY LIFE, AS I HAVE A LOT OF LIFE LEFT IN ME AND I HAVE EVEN MORE LEFT TO WRITE ABOUT, AND A LOT FOR THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT THIS MAN WHO WAS BORN TO FAIL, BUT BECAME A SUCCESS…SO HOLD ON FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED…

SO UNTIL,NEXT TIME LIVE LIFE AND REMEMBER YOUR FALLEN BROTHERS BEHIND THESE PRISON WALLS, WHO CAN ALWAYS USE A GOOD WORD FROM THE FREE WORLD…SO GET AT ME.

LET ME FIRST START OF BY SENDING MY DEEPEST APOLOGY…

AS I CREATED A INTRO LETTER SOME TIME AGO AND NEVER FOLLOWED UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE, SO THIS IS JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING TO GET THINGS STARTED OFF…

I SAY LIFES FUNNY SOME TIMES BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE WISH TO BELIEVE WE HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL, THATS JUST NOT THE CASE…AS I THOUGHT I WAS IN THE CLEAR HERE AT THIS NEW FACILITY WITH MY MONEY, VISITS AND WORK PROGRAMS, BUT LOW AND BEHOLD EVERY THING WASNT AS IT SEEMED, SO I’VE BEEN ON THE GRIND TO GET EVERYTHING IN ORDER, WHICH I PRAY IS ALL GOOD NOW…

BUT ME BEING WHO I AM, I HAVE LEARNED TO ENBRACE ADVERSITY AND TRIUMPH OVER ALL CHALLENGES SET FORTH BEFORE ME WITH GRACE AND FORTITUDE, KNOWING THAT NOTHING LAST FOREVER, SO IT WILL COME TO AN END SOON ENOUGH, BUT UNTIL THEN I STAND FIRM AND HOLD FAST…

WELL WORLD THIS IS JUST A BRIFE VIEW OF THE UP AND COME ATTRACTIONS INWHICH I HAVE IN STORE FOR YOU…SO STAY TUNED…

GET AT ME!!!
