Dealing with someone whose incarcerated can be stressful, and I wand you to have that in mind as you read these words of mine.  I’ve been in prison since I was 22, an I’m now 43.  The crime I committed has me here for a few more years compared to what I’ve done so far, but I’m doing my part to chip away at what remaining days I have left.  And with doing that I would like more than anything to connect with a woman who will understand that I have a past that isn’t spotless which is why I opened this thought as I did.  Because I want you to know I deal in honesty, and everyday won’t be filled with sunshines, but I can say I will always do my part to make sure everyday ends better than the last one, and even in those stressful times if ones make it through them they will come out better for them.  I don’t write this hoping to find someone to fall in love with, I write this first and foremost looking for a friend that can help bring an end to some of these lonely nights.  I say a friend because I’m at that point in my life where I understand above all else a friend will be there during the good and bad times, and that’s what I want, but don’t get me wrong although I’m not coming into this looking for love I know with time it can be found.  With that being said I can say despite my surroundings I can admit I wear my heart on my sleaves.  I am a caring person and give 100% of myself to any woman I’m dealing with, and because of that I naturally expect a portion of that to be reciprocated.  I know life on the other side of these gates move at a faster pace, so know that I’m only asking for what time you can share with the hope that over time you’ll be willing to give me more of it.  I could sit here and share only the best parts of me in this writing, but I’ll say some people say I’m selfish, and this could be due to the fact that I’m my mother’s only child and I was raised solely by her and almost always got my way when I was in the right.  Coming to prison young I grew up quick and I’m thankful I was surrounded by people who didn’t allow me to succumb to the prison lifestyle mentality.  By that I mean I’ve always been a cheerful person whose kept a smile on his face.  I’ll be lieing if I said prison hasn’t changed me because it has I’ve been able to evaluate myself and become the man I am today, to understand that you’ll learn through our communication which I look forward to starting with you as soon as you reach out to me.  Until then know that I’m a quiet person who loves music, pictures and talking on the phone all of which allows me to step outside of this place, even if just for a moment.  I earned my GED and I’m 11 credits from getting my associate’s degree.  I also enjoy reading books that are thought provoking.
