Introduction to Jermaine Hicks

Years ago I would of never thought I would be sitting in a cell writing the world a letter in hopes of being a voice for me and many like myself. And with my story, I do so pray, that not only my words be felt and heard, but help form an "action movement: for kids and prisoners like myself.

I understand the comings and goings of those of you in society does not offer you time to sit and think or even read about the many circumstances and struggles of others. And I also understand , and believe, that those of us incarcerated owe society deeply for taking away your properties, rights and freedoms. In some cases like my own, we can never repay what we have taken. But through time, maybe your forgiveness and our willingness to try to not only build ourselves up, but give back, maybe we can change the many social issues dealing with kids and gang affiliations.

Please read my story and let me give you the Real-Deal of what gang-bangers live for and what it means to be a gangster, young, blind and emotional displaced. Journey with me to my 'hood and my world. The real world that only leads to death or prison.

My story will be posted in chapters once a week thanks to Between the Bars. I would like you to speak your mind about everything you read here. But mostly, I request for your support in helping us change the issues you will read here. I welcome all of you to my blog and I am looking for your correspondence with all who feels free to hit me up.

Peace & "Educate 2 Liberate!"

Hi Jermaine,

I just did the transcription for this post and you said that there was a poem included but there was noting included. I just wanted to bring this to your attention so you didn't think I was doing you post an injustice or stealing your work, lol!
