Hello Wire of Hope Community!

My name is Eric Wright and I’m in search of friends. I’m open to and am interested in finding and getting to know an open, down-to-earth individual, no matter the race, color, sexual preference, etc. I’ve been self-isolating too long, it’s out of my system now. Interest topics: wisdom, current world, local advocacy issues. Been wrongly convicted since 2004-5. Litigating since 2008. Just want to share life and have adopted family/friends via Wire of Hope. Here’s two old photos of me; as soon as the Covid-19 restrictions ease up, I will send in two more updated photos. Here is also two examples of my poetry. My poetic-bug has been hiding within me for several years. I hope they are thought-provoking, and emotionally stimulating 😉

My Child

Somewhere in the distant past, I unconsciously locked you up…
when you were only a child.
I’ve been searching for you all of my life… everywhere!
There are so many reasons why I locked you up-
What happened… I wasn’t fully conscious of life’s shattering events
that gave the permission to sink/shrink the tender-age child.
So many years of searching has finally come to an end… I’ve found you-
You’re the same, and on the other end, you’re not. You have aged,
yet you’re still so young… as if it were… Yesterday!
I have the key to FREE you, but…
Why are you so afraid to come out!


When I became aware of Self, I was Alone.
Looked around for help when I was a child,
Only to realize that I was… Alone.
Sat in a crowded-kindergarten-class,
My spoken-words-unheard; realizing that,
I was… Alone.
Stood outside of the young SELF during the abuse,
looked around, and the child was… Alone.
I reached for my mother’s hand,
it was cold, stiff… lifeless…
I walked away- Alone.
Searched for Self in the bottle,
There he lays at the bottom in the child’s vomit… Alone.
Looking on ME, SELF, and I… In a cement,
Living Tomb… Alone.
