I write this introduction because I am desperately in need of pen-pals, someone who's honest, sincere, goal-oriented, well grounded, strong in mind, body, and soul. Someone who has a passion for life and compassion for others. Naturally, someone whom I can mentally travel with into uncharted territory who I can share my ideas, concepts, and ideologies. Someone who will give my mind the opportunity to permeate the confines of my desolate and lonely cell.
Well, myself, I am an artist, poet, and a freedom fighter. 29 years old, born Jan. 22nd, 1982 in the state of Louisiana. I have been locked up for 9 1/2 years on a life sentence. While here, I have been perfecting my mind, body, and soul with daily workouts, reading literature, listening to music, drawing, writing poetry, and staying in contact with family and friends. I would that I am a young man with substance. I just had a small setback in my life. I owe society a small debt.
So if you're interested in building a bond of friendship, please feel free to write and tell me a little bit about yourself (likes, dislikes, etc.). Until then, take care, and I'll be sure to do the same.
