Let me just say that this may be the most difficult couple of paragraphs I have ever written. I have always been somewhat of an introvert, so reaching out like this, especially in my circumstances, is a bit difficult for me. The first couple of years were an emotional rollercoaster; trying to come to terms with what I had done, all of the people I hurt, and how I had ruined my own life. Things slowly turned in a more positive direction as I learned to deal with my situation and the inevitable conflict which arises from time to time.

For the past few years, I’ve been focusing mainly on bettering myself. I can never change the things I’ve done, but I can try to improve myself; which is about all I can do right now. So, I started by working on my mental health by reading, writing, attending programming, exercising, getting proper sleep, etc. I try to help people in the unit, when possible, whether it’s a shot of coffee or someone to talk to. I am also taking college courses; I finished the paralegal program and am currently working on a constitutional law course. There is an astounding lack of programing in prison, exacerbated by Covid, so I am doing what I can with books and outside resources. I have also been learning Old Norse and enjoy reading the old sagas.

That being said, I would like to find someone to talk to. I have a few people I’m able to talk to, either through email or by telephone, but it can get surprisingly lonely within these walls. I have gotten my fair share of hate mail and can make do without more of that; I just want someone to share with, listen to, connect with, learn from, and be friends with.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, I look forward to hearing from you!


There’s a million things in this world
a broken man has to fear
A shattered mind is all that’s left
when it’s more than he can bear.

When she drives away into the night
he wants to know she’s safe
But when the moon rises high
something takes her place.

It’s not the moon or the stars
that fill the endless void
It’s more than broken promises
that fill his mind this night.

A raging river, a waterfall
a million thoughts undone
A thousand dreams floating by
all becoming one.

A mad man it has made
one that isn’t here
A man that wants nothing more
than to be rid of all the fear.

He hasn’t been home since that night
so very long ago
Many miles he’s walked since then
when he went where no man should go.

Green grass turns to shades of blue
blue skies turn to pink
Pink elephants begin to dance around
it’s worse than you would think.

A drink or two to clear the mind
to help the vision fade
Three or four, or maybe more
to help mind be made.

The ties are bad, sometimes worse
the aches and pains severe
Hard to concentrate it’s been
when the colors he can hear.

Intrusive thoughts, they come and go
most are here to stay
The fires burn behind my eyes
please make them go away.

Many nights he lies awake
the memories have come alive
They grab and stab and suffocate
stripping him of his lies.

In that cell she came to me
Lana, she was called
She held my hand and sang to me
in the night so long and cold.
