My name is Shaunte Smith. I am seeking friends who are down-to-earth, honest, spiritual-minded, and understanding. While being incarcerated, I’ve learned to depend on and trust in God to order my steps along my journey.

Due to my immature ways and lack of guidance, I committed a grave error that landed me in prison many years ago. But due to the grace of God, my life was spared and I was given a second chance. And because of this, I would love to pay it forward by sharing my testimony, and brightening your day with encouraging words.

Q: How do I do my time in prison, in the midst of chaos? A: I do it productively. My main hobby is designing shoes. Shoes are my passion. My goal is to land a shoe deal before my last 10 years in prison are up! New ideas arrive every day and time is moving quickly. What I would really love more than anything right now, is for someone knowledgeable and passionate in the area of Shoe Design, to serve as a mentor and to provide me with personal insight. I’ve been told that my designs are crushing many of the high-dollar name brand shoes out there, and that I have the potential to revolutionize the industry! When I create, I make it a point to create unique and never before seen designs. I really wish I could just put them all on display for you to see, but because I’m currently in the process of trying to get a patent for them, I cannot. But, if I’m blessed to find true friendship in all this, then you will certainly get a chance to see some of my work. I welcome anyone, any race, it doesn’t matter. As long as you have a good heart and a sense of humor, I look forward to being enriched by your friendship!

I also want to thank Wire of Hope for this opportunity to meet new friends.

Keep on Going

Staring at the make-up that’s on your face, painted to perfection”
flashing memories of needed kind with your love and affection”
I’m on a brink of a meltdown at this moment, I can’t pray, I can’t focus”
my brother and sons are depending on me, I refused to let them see me chocking”
I prayed continuously for a whole week for right now at this moment”
with a shackle chain around my waist, wrist attached I couldn’t wipe the tears away if I was hoping”
Thank God for the shackles around my feet, those short steps distracted me and kept me focus”
My last time I will ever see you sis, so young, so beautiful and yet chosen”
A thousand eyes are looking at me, Nine hundred and ninety four I’m not noticing”
This man here I learned a lot from him, his wisdom in my mind will always keep growing”
Now put yourself in my shoes, picture your mother lying down opposite of snoring”
… Ok push pause for a second… and look down at her now with your eyes tears not flowing”
feeling so devastated, this pain you will forever be exploring”
that one day with less tears in my eyes now, every day, tears keep flowing”
Picture a dark grey cloud with no rain pouring”
A blind eagle in the sky soaring”
Whoever said this wasn’t hard, I can’t fully understand you, you must be speaking foreign”
I’m staring at my Mother, my father and my sister in a casket thinking about life, wishing mine will end, but I just have to keep on going.”
