Hello… Are you the friend I'm searching for?

As I journey through life alone in my cell, I search for someone to share my life, opinions, and outlook, but I'd be lying to myself if I wasn't also looking that special lady who can truly share my joy and pain with. Really, I'm looking for a friend to put a smile on my face while I sit in my dark place awaiting my outcome, which ever it may be…

Here's a little about myself: I was born on the 6th of March in 1971, and raised in Norfolk, Virginia. What I love so much about my home is the ocean. My younger brother and I would go swimming the beach every day during the summer of my youth. I also love the cold seasons, because those gave me such peace, which I found I enjoyed playing in the snow at a young age, with life wasn't being difficult. As I became older, my life took many wrong turns, and as strange as this sounds, I say that being in Texas death row for 20 years has saved my life several ways, in a sense. I'm now a different person from the person long back then. For example: when I first arrived, I was unable to read and write, but I learned throughout the years and have come to love the many ways people communicate with each other through their words. I also come to love the reading of all kinds of books, especially graphic novels with all their creative storylines and artwork. Also, because I am in solitary confinement, I am able to improve myself with the help from study self-help books without any background voices distract me. I love all kinds of music, and especially jazz, whenever I'm able to find it from the radio, because it gives me a sense of peace. My favorite musician is 'Sade', whose uplifting and inspiring music speaks to me through the radio. Also, I once was married but I'm unfortunately divorced, and it still hurts that I'm without children in my life, but despite that I'm a spiritual person searching for the true meaning of loving peace…

My goal in finding friends means a lot to me, and I will share my life with anyone wishing to write me. I know there are people out there who have experienced awful things in their lives, and those experiences likely cause mental and emotional problems, so I feel that many people don't have anyone who understands what they're going through. Let's just say I went through many experiences, and I want to be there for anyone who need someone to understand. I believe that friendship, communication is key to building a lasting one, and so many people outside have this preconceived notion that prisoners have hidden motives and agendas, I refuse to feed that by being part of the stereotype, because I'm loyal, encouraging, and a great listener along with many characteristics.

So, I continue searching for the definition of true friendship, and I look forward to building a long-lasting one with you…
