Hey, I really don't know what to write, but I'll give it a try.
I'm a 27 year old Black male. I've been in prison for 11 straight years. Before that I spent 13 straight years in H.R.S/D.C.F, The Department of Children and Families Service. I can't say that they really gave me and service except giving me a jump start to a Fucked Up life. In the last few years I'm just now finding the peace and tranquility I need in order to function and live like a normal human being. I sit in my cell at time and I wish for a second chance, then I get pissed off when I see all these people who've come to prison after me or the one's that came with me. The ones who've been home twice about to get out for the third time and I'm stuck in this living Hell we call a prison. Shit is so crazy in this prison that at times I wish I was invisible, because if it ain't the inmate trying to run over you it's the god damn guards. They all some snakes in the bushes, ain't no telling which one the most deadliest. I try to stay to myself. I love to write, but I don't get any response except for my mother. I really didn't know what to think when I first wrote Between the Bars, but I figured that it would be a good way for me to get my music out and meet new people at the same time, so here I am.If you do write, please use the address below and know that anyone who writes me will receive a return letter.

Yours Truly
Simply Me
