To my future friend,

First and foremost, please call me J.R., and I would like to thank you for taking the time out of your day and check out my profile… I’m a very humble guy, and very down-to-earth, but I also love to get turned up every now and then when the time is right… I joined “Wire of Hope” in hopes of making better friends and to be a good friend to whoever decides to correspond with me.

Since being incarcerated, I’ve earned my Associate’s Degree in liberal studies, and I am now currently enrolled in the Blackstone Institute School of Law, pursuing my paralegal.

On my free time, other than dreaming, I love to read and write. I am currently working on my fifth and sixth books and I am a published poet. Feel free to check out my essay where I’m going to showcase some of my chapter to my novel and my poetry.

I’m looking forward to meeting like-minded people who can motivate me to be better in life, because that’s what I love to do myself, motivate my friends to be better people…

We haven’t met yet, but I’ll tell you what will happen when we do. I’m going to treat you like you’re the greatest thing to ever happen to me, because you just might be. I’ll make you laugh, be there for you when you cry, and always be supportive. I’ll draw for you, sing to you over the phone (no matter how embarrassing) and you will always get the best of me. I’m going to enjoy your company, support and getting to know you. We will become great friends. We’ll have fun, and I’ll always do my best to make sure that writing me was the best decision you ever made.

I’m still fighting my case so your prayers are very much welcome. I’m looking forward to be hearing from you, so stay safe out there.


J.R. Westmoreland

As the rain water taps.. (for those that wonder)

As the rain water taps…
I look at my life and try to compare…
It’s not fair, that I squeeze and scream for air…
I’m scared, staring struck…
What happened to my life…
Where did the sunrise, my sunshine go…
Out of control, why not just let go…
I have so much to accomplish and show…
I asked God if this was the end…
In my ear He whispers “no”…
“It’s the middle, and your story is still being told”…

Mail call – for those who really want to know

Darkness and loneliness fill my cell with pain…
And fear too great to yell…
I wait for the mail room to deliver to me
As I wipe away tears that you will never see…
I pray so sincere with head and ear
Please God, soon send a letter of love my way…
I long to gaze upon pages…
So dear with richer to bring my loved ones near…
Words of diamonds on pages of gold
A message from heaven as their story is told
We love you, we miss you, we pray that you’ll be free…
A treasure-filled envelope, just for me…
Please bring memories of your family and friends and things I would do…
(But…) The darkness and the pain of my cell prevail
as my name, again, was not called for mail…

Chapter 96 from: Intaglio…

A Novel by J.R. Westmoreland, yours truly.

Lysa is not in a mood for lip boxing. She backs out of the parking lot and shifts gears into drive and gets onto the main road in hot pursuit. There is no time to process the event. Her nerves grew, and her head is shaking no.

Her eyes are pleading for the truth. Jenna rubs her back to calm her because her arms are trembling with silent rage. “I think you’re overreacting, Lysa. After all he put you through, I don’t think Epic would cheat on you. (thinking about it) Well, at least not while Christmas is there.”

In the space of a moment, Lysa turns and peers into Jenna, trying to convey her thoughts. Her eyes went from slits to balls of fire from what Jenna just said. What does she know? She can’t keep a man for a week…

-Thank you for reading, feel free to let me know how you like it. I’ve been working on this book for almost two years now. I’m finally finishing it up. Be on the lookout for another taste and be safe…

Chapter 1 of the Send-off

By Frank Westmoreland Jr.

Hands behind his back, hands cuffed to an uncomfortable steel chair is the downside of the thug life or any kind of life for that matter. Seth tries to control his heart from rioting with no avail. In the next ten minutes, it’s going to burst out onto the matching steel table in front of him and mess up the set, from all this diarrhea of emotions he’s being put through.

His dad is going to kill him! Literally bury him 12 feet underground (the extra six feet is so his father will not dig him back up and kill him again).

This is one of the many thoughts running marathons in Seth’s confused, cluttered head. Every two minutes, the whirring sound of the air conditioner clicks on and off. The only reason he took notice is because it’s the only other thing in this room that’s making a sound other than the pounding of his heart.

Sweating like a dog or someone with malaria, Seth isn’t a thug, not even close. It isn’t his size. The suit’s too tight. Eyes with tears, Seth doesn’t dare to blink. One might fall to his cheek, leaving DNA evidence that he’s scared.

This isn’t a man’s washroom, or he would be pissing right now. God only knows how bad he has to go, and that to his right. He bets there isn’t any old mirror where you can watch yourself beat off, bust a pimple or pick your nose, wiping a sticky green booger on.

It’s a two-way mirror, which means no privacy at all. Yes, he’s being watched just like the movies at the cinema where there is a beginning, middle, and end. The end part sounds pretty good right about now.

-Let me know what you guys think.
