Pittsburgh native here… My name is Gillette. I’m 37 years old and hoping to meet some new friends here to correspond with. As I write this, I’m feeling an energy of charged expectations of the possibilities “maybe” and “what if” someone does respond back because I’m surely looking forward to it.
If you’re still reading this, obviously you want to know more about me, yes? I consider myself an easy going, laid back, quiet kinda fella with an outgoing personality. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I play the saxophone, was a boxer in my younger days, and I love music of all genres. I’m a tutor, peer support worker, and certified diesel technician.
I keep pretty busy around here by working out, writing poetry, cooking, and hopefully letter writing soon too. I try to break up the repetitive routine of prison life by keeping myself constructively occupied, and I read a lot because it never gets old to learn something new from a book.
Now, I post this profile not only to reconnect with the outside world, but also to try and build bridges throughout this journey to open up my very small circle of trusted people in my life and acquire some genuine, sincere and trusted friendships along the way.
I have learned in my life that true friendship begins with Honesty, Trust, and Respect. These are qualities that I value and possess, so I hope that you do as well. One must have a genuine love & respect for others regardless of their physical abilities, religion, ethnicity, or social status, as I do.
Well, that’s me in a nutshell… As it be, everything has to begin with something, right? So, I’ve taken the initiative to reach out by posting the profile with the hope that someone out there believes that I’m worth their time & effort of a response back.
I’ll be patiently waiting and looking forward to the “possibilities” of a response. Hope to be hearing from you soon!

1 Warrior 2 Souls

I’m one warrior with two souls
A frozen heart filled with burning coals
A pair of lifeless eyes with live tears
A nervous wreck with no fears
A healing angel at times and a miniature devil
A passive compliant and an ultimate rebel
An inspirational instrument and a torturous tool
A sparkling intellectual and a misfortunate fool
An ocean of pleasure and a river of pain
A 1⁄2 day of sunshine and twelve hours of rain
I’m the warmth of the summer and bitter of cold
I’m pulled in two directions, 1 warrior with two souls
