Pen Pals: Find a friend behind enemy lines

Taking photos of prisoners is prohibited in many prisons, so the few that find their way out are precious. The Bay View thanks longtime subscriber and writer Uhuru Baraka (Brian Lee) Rowe, 1131545, Greensville CC, 902 Corrections Way, Jarratt VA 23870, for sending this one.

Life behind enemy lines can be lonely, and a letter from a friend – a pen pal – can liberate mind and spirit. These prisoners are reaching out to you. They trust that Bay View readers truly care. Reach back and write a letter today!

Hello out there ladies. My name is Brian Shalom Hunter but I am known to most as simply “Goldie”. Unfortunately for the moment I am trapped inside the belly of the beast. The good news is, the oppressor did not win in my case, I overturned a natural life sentence and am due for release in 2021. Not only did I refuse to lose, I also refused to become a product of my current environment. I am so much more than my current environment, I like to think of myself as old money and fine wine – I just continue to mature and get better with time. I’m looking for that special lady of similar mindset, a woman who refuses to lose and on a constant mission to better oneself and win. I want someone who is loyal, respects herself and commands respect, a Queen who knows her worth and won’t settle for nothing less. Are you my Queen? I am blk and Puerto Rican, 5’9”, well built and toned, caramel colored skin and hazel green eyes. I am a Brooklyn NY native. Race is not important to me, but keeping it real is most important. I am a man of many resources an visions, convict mail welcome. Cannot get mail directly from other institutions. Write me at the following: Brian Shalom Hunter #147483, ASPC-Eyman, SMU #1, 1-D-7, PO Box 4000, Florence, AZ 85132

Greetings of Peace & Love! My name is Mr. Derrin Windsor aka “Mustafas”. I am a 54 year old Blackman who possess a maturity of character as well as a disciplined mind. In saying that I am very upfront, I have been incarcerated 26 years seeking freedom in 2020. I enjoy reading books, knowledge & wisdom that enhance the intellect. I am searching for that precious gift that God blessed this Earth with, a “Woman”. That divine gift who displays the feminine quality of a Goddess. A Queen that is willing to build a relationship based upon becoming Best Friends. If you are interested in allowing a conscious man to touch you Spiritually, Mentally and Emotionally, not to say travel with your thoughts, please contact me to learn more. I leave as I came, in Peace and Real Love. Email via or write Derrin Windsor #233025, GHCF, 2727 East Beecher Street, Adrian, MI 49221

Hi. I’m 31 years old, 5’11, 175 pounds, light brown from St. Louis, MO. I was wrongfully convicted of a crime I didn’t commit, in a city that’s getting worse but I think prison has made me smarter and stronger. So it was a blessing in disguise.

I enjoy reading and writing. I just want to find someone to treat like a queen. If you’re interested hit me up with a letter or email at Try the unknown, it can change lives for the better.

Dear lovely Queens – “Are you tired of the same old personal ads and lies? Or guys who are lacking honesty, sincerity, and respect?” Well I pray that this letter finds you Queens in the best of health and spirits. My name is Jeremy Raphael Jackman, I’m a Moorish American, Sovereign, Aboriginal, Indigenous King. I’m in search of a beautiful gorgeous Queen that knows her worth in this world, to write and develop a friendship and more. Someone once said a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet. I believe that is true, do you? I also believe true friendship and more should be built on trust, respect, honesty, appreciation, sincerity, and attention. Because I believe in honesty up front, feel free to ask any question you have for me. No topic is taboo either! So you Queens know I’m a 30 year old Asiatic (Black) man, I have long dreads, I’m a conscious brother seeking only one Queen to take my breath away. I’m 5’7 and 160 pounds, handsome Moor that’s seeking divine love. My lovely Queen if you are out there always understand nothing in life is guaranteed, but should you consider becoming my pen Queen, here are some things I can promise to be for you: someone you can come to for comfort; eyes you can look into and trust; a heart that understands and doesn’t judge; a supporting shoulder to cry on; a door that is always open; and time devoted to you alone.

Hello! My name is Carl B. Primus Jr., but my friends call me CJ. I’m 26 years old, born in Rockingham, NC but was in Laurinburg, NC. Here are several things about myself: love sports, outdoorsman, animals, cars and food. I’m not a narrow-minded person, down to earth type of person. Love trying new things as long as they aren’t weird. Looking for that special someone that wants a relationship or real friendship. I would love to meet a woman with these qualities: family oriented, independent, strong willed, open-minded, funny, sexy and smart. I am not too picky about what a woman looks like, nor what her race is. The thing I care about is the inside of a person, not the outside. To all beautiful queens. Carl B.

Dear Reader – What that do did baby. Slow to the finish line on mine. If you always looking up like me, slow motion is better than no motion. My personality is lit up like game 7 of the World Series at night time, with a look on life like a magnified glass. I wake up trying to make happy happy; and put a smile on a smile face. Deeper than the average, and rounded like a basketball. I am a street cat that is self-education, with a heart the size of the day after forever. If you looking at this as mere verbosity, it’s meant to qualify and disqualify. I play, I joke, I laugh, I love, I feel, I understand, disqualif I, I listen, I care, I believe, I’m yours, I’m truthful, I’m serious as all outdoors. I don’t matter what you are like, I am water, I will fit your mold. If you can grow you are my type, if you can open up we’ve got more in common than could be expected. If you love people, life, and yourself, get at me. You really don’t have to know the combination to your heart, I’m a professional safecracker! I will know what you’re keeping in it, before you breathe out the air you just breathed in. The exact opposite of being full of myself darling, I’m just in tune with the universe. If the universe can be breathtaking, why can’t we? Peace and blessings momie. Much L/P/B, Allen Ray McKinzy Jr. #1836478, Allred Unit, 2101 FM 369 North, Iowa Park, TX 76367

Hello…My name is Nigel Hampton and I’m 28 years old. 5’9”, 140 lbs. Very athletic. Born and raised in Houston, Texas. I would describe myself as fun, easy going, ambitious, non-judgmental, giving, playful, romantic, passionate, family oriented, and monogamous. Patience and understanding are the two inner qualities I hold within myself. As for being indoors, I enjoy all of the typical things such as morning rituals and lazy afternoons. I also enjoy cooking although I must admit, I sometimes have to dig the instructions out the trash. LOL. As far as being outdoors, I enjoy just about everything, from dirt bike and ATV riding to jet skiing. I’m currently incarcerated for the mistakes and decisions I regretfully made as a youth, but I’m sure you know history is rarely made by reasonable men. I am in search of a pen-pal who is willing to become a long-term friend and who will keep me engaged in their daily personal life in a way that will prevent me from becoming lost in this prison system. Someone who knows balance is important to them, enjoys the nice things in life, but is also spiritual and doesn’t get fully caught up in the quest for material goods. Someone who enjoys the simple things in life, but can also be spontaneous. And just so you know, age dissimilarities has nothing to do with comparability! Nigel M. Hampton #1847481, Allred Unit, 2101 FM 369 North, Iowa Park, TX 76367

Greetings! My name is Alamar Cyril Houston, 42 years of age, 5’9, 260 pounds. I am currently incarcerated for a hit and run (D.U.I.). I am looking to make contact with like minded people willing to correspond with me. I will not discriminate on gender because we are all human beings full of human resources. I am looking to establish unbreakable friendship. I am very open minded and always looking to try something new as long as it is beneficial to my intellectual portion of the brain that will allow me to obtain and gain success for the near future. My favorite color is lavender purple because it stands for royalty; green is my second because it represents money. I am currently studying banking procedures on how to establish a treasury direct account with the Department of Treasury for the purpose of discharging debts (dollar for dollar under House Joint Resolution 192 of June 5, 1933). My hobbies are: reading (self educating), playing chess, card games, writing, music, and cleaning viruses out of computers and laptops (when I’m not incarcerated). I am into the studies of kung fu, ninjutsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing and boxing (Golden Gloves). I love intellectual people that can communicate and I love quality things. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Alamar Cyril Houston #BB9605, MCSP, B-8-106, PO Box 409040, Ione, CA 95640

Aloha Ladies! I’m 6’1 tall, 220 lbs, hazel eyes, golden tan skin, reddish brown hair. I’m not looking for no money or writing supplies or nothing like that. I was born 9-2-60, I’ll be 59 this year. I’m a home owner, part owner in a family ranch, a business owner. My ranch & home are up north of Woodland, CA. I have 20 months to do, been locked up 6 months. Looking for single female age 55 to 70 for pen pal. I’m half Tonga, half Irish. Reply to Herbie Logan #BH5504, VSP, B-1-28-4L, PO Box 92, Chowchilla, CA 93610

A lonely, Christian MD (medical doctor), incarcerated, seeks pen-pals of any age/race/sex/class/status. Hobbies: making friends, helping people, the outdoors, swimming, golf, writing, drawing & painting, dancing, and movies. Music: country music, modern rock, oldies, classical, jazz. Why in prison? I believe that honesty is the best policy, so I’m going to tell you all about my case when you decide to write. For now, if you like the conspiracy theory about Dr. Sam Shepard in the real-life drama “Fugitive”, you’d love my story. No, I’m not here for rape, so you can relax. I’m not here for drugs, either. I have been framed just like Dr. McDonald, and my case involves love, drama and murder. Life in prison? It’s difficult for anyone who has never been there to understand the terror and loneliness that sweeps over you when the steel doors of prison clang shut behind you. Letters and moral support (such as visits) are the two most important things for prisoners. I really need your help and prayer. I am a totally 100% innocent man! God answered the prayer after 30 long years of being falsely accused and imprisonment – the real killer wants to confess. But, there is one problem here: the Prosecutor does not want to admit that a miscarriage of Justice has been made because it will reflect on his political and professional image. Sincerely waiting for your earliest response. Ellis A. Chen, MD #D95889, CMF, N-101, PO Box 2000, Vacaville, CA 95696

Greetings – I have been trying to obtain support from Black writers regarding the concealing of evidence which I have recorded at my links. Briefly, I was given 48 years as an alleged second car driver. However, the law clearly instructs all courts that an alleged second car driver cannot be found guilty nor held liable as an aider and abetter, People v. Cooper (1991) 53 Cal. 1166 at 1168. Now the courts are playing games knowing I’m incarcerated under a theory of law that does not exist and me and my family are being put through these obstacles in hopes that I die in prison behind these intentional acts of fraud by the District Attorney et al., who intentionally misled the jury “upon a created theory of law that exceeds all the elements of the crime”. I also have federal judges concealing exhibits that I submitted to the court as statements of fact, a valid complaint that admits a class action violation of maintaining an inadequate law library. The federal judge declared the complaint I filed as “dirty laundry” and I have been blocked out of court based upon the evidence of misconduct against public officials, acts to prevent liability. I don’t have access to the internet and these concerted acts of concealment are well known by staff and inmates as acts of “the green wall”. Me and my family need help and national attention.

Hi, my name is Jackson Limose. I’m 35 years old, a first generation Haitian American born and raised in Orlando, FL. I’m 5’10, 165 slim muscular built, dark skinned, dark brown eyes, low cut with waves. I have a couple of tattoos, all in acceptable places. I love to learn anything that I can because I’m a firm believer that you can never know enough and you never know when what you’ve learned may come in handy. I’m not big on fiction and urban novels because there’s no substance in a lot of them. I love to travel, work out, play chess, learn about history, other countries, and of course I love sports, football being my favorite. I’m a very understanding individual, very outspoken and a very attentive listener. If I want to know something, I have no problem with asking and I wish a lot of people in the world (or at least around me) would do the same because the only dumb question is the one that was never asked. My favorite quote is: “Patience is a virtue, good things come to those who wait”. I’m looking to meet a goal-oriented woman who knows herself and what she wants and needs in life, a woman that’s level headed and open to get to know me and allow me to get to know her. Race and age doesn’t matter at all to me. Thank you for your time. I can be emailed at or by mail at Jackson Limose #167944, JCI, 5563 10th Street, Malone, FL 32445

My name is Bobby Hazel. I am a 64 year old prisoner who is serving an illegal sentence pertaining to a conviction for murder, in which the United States Government officials and former defense lawyer have conspired with one another to conceal exculpatory evidence, a videotape that will exonerate me of the murder. The videotape was referenced in a letter that a defense lawyer forwarded to the prosecutor and other defense lawyers saying that he would make copies for inspection. The letter was never forwarded to me. After discovering the letter, I filed a motion to the court to compel the government to release the videotape. After many frustrating derailments I was informed the Department of Justice had found the documents and instructing the FBI to release the videotape – two years ago the FBI contacted me saying my request is on a waiting list. I need donations and assistance in retaining an attorney to pursue justice. I am in imminent danger due to my health deteriorating. Any and all legal help and friendship is appreciated.

Greetings World!!! My name is James Ingram, but my friends call me Jay or J-Rock. Being in prison sometimes brings a person to areas in life they normally will not visit. It can either bring the best or worst out of him if he isn’t strong enough to endure the many obstacles that plague his very existence. I consider myself one of the strong, because I refused to allow my past to determine my future. In addition, I have learned to appreciate the smallest things in life. I enjoy reading, working out, writing poetry, and writing. I also like to have long conversations about life while getting to know all about the person I’m talking to, which I believe is key to building a solid foundation in any friendship.

Broken Heart and Lonely. Hello, my name is Franklin Church, W/M, 5’10”, 180 lbs, brown hair & eyes, ex-fire fighter/EMT for 20 yrs. I lost my mother & father in a house fire in Jacksonville, Florida. I’m a member of the Christian Unity Church here at Angola, I’m head Deacon. I have been behind bars since 2010. I’ve had Post-Conviction Relief in District Court since 2015 with 9 claims of Double Jeopardy. I have filed all my appeals pro-se, as I have no family or support from outside. I have not had a visit from anyone since I have been behind bars. I work as an electrician in maintenance here, I have a hobby shop box that I use to make hand-made jewelry. God is a BIG part of my life, I give thanks to him everyday for his Grace to stay alive. I don’t get mail, I was married for 24 yrs to a lady who got remarried a year after I came to prison, she said she could not be alone!! I’m intelligent, honest, understanding and fun-loving. I’m looking for a free spirit woman to communicate or connect with. My heart has been broken wide open so I have trust problems which I have been working on with God’s help. If I had just a little help from the outside, or a pro bono lawyer that would be willing to sign onto my Post-Conviction Relief, I really believe I would be out. Email me at or write Franklin Church #613285, LSP, 17544 Tunica Trace, Angola, LA 70712

First off, let me start by saying I believe one of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand, and to be understood. That being said, I’m posting this ad to discover new possibilities. What you should know about me is this: I love to laugh and try new things. I strive to life my life to the fullest each and every day, with attitude of gratitude and appreciation for the many blessings in my life. I believe life is all about the moments we make so I spend a great deal of my time dedicated to growing both spiritually and mentally. I’m ambitious, driven and passionate about art and music, though I’m physically inside a cell and recognize my reality for what it is. I do my best to escape this bleak environment through my creative processes. The truth is prison can be a very dark and lonely place so I guess you can say I’m searching for someone who can show me something different and give me something to believe in. I would like nothing more than to create a genuine, caring connection with someone who can truly appreciate all I have to offer. If I’m someone you would like to get to know, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line, just to say hello.

LIFE IS A GIFT…LET’S OPEN IT UP TOGETHER! Hi! My name is Sheldon Eugene Thompson. These days, I believe that people get so caught-up attempting to find the “Perfect Thing” to say instead of just being themselves. What do you think? I’m interested in developing a meaningful friendship with someone as myself: Politically incorrect, loyal, compassionate, down-to-earth, and willing to get lost for hours in an eloquent dialogue discussing things that others tend generally to not comprehend. I’m a fiction/non-fiction, short-story, poetry, and essay writer whose life at times seems to be a mosaic of philosophies, quirks, and mistakes. If you could describe me in one word I suppose that it would be “deep” because I’m never afraid to enter into those emotionally and mentally challenging areas we often find ourselves in. My writing is something that I’m always seeking inspiration and ideas for to expand my scope and creativity. What about you? I enjoy reading, sports, travel, comparative religion, metaphysics, alchemy, and good Ice Cream! All replies welcome via (please include address) or snail mail. #GloriousConquest! Sheldon E. Thompson #01282227, Estelle Unit, 264 FM 3478, Huntsville, TX 77320-3322

To my down-to-earth, God-fearing future wife: If you are reading this, know that sometimes a person doesn’t know what they were missing until they have it. Personally, I believe that it was pre-ordained for you to be reading this at this particular moment in time. My name is Tyrone, but my family calls me Ty. I’m 6’4” and weigh 225 lbs with a lean, athletic build. I love playing basketball and enjoy working out, especially yoga. At 33 years of age, I’m wise, well-read, and forward thinking. I’m in college because I am a life-long learner focused on progress and results. I’m also a Christian who endorses loving and serving people outside the faith community in hope that experiencing Christ’s love will lead them to Him. I’m a people builder. Furthermore, my momma taught me how to love and treat a woman. I’m a Texas boy with a heart the size of Texas. When I was a teenager, I bought into a false ideal of manhood. Consequently, I and a group of people committed a few robberies. I’m eligible for parole in February 2021. I look forward to talking more, corresponding, and sharing life. God bless.

I’ve been incarcerated since 2002 and I’ve always found it difficult to have decent conversations in prison. Most convos are centered around objectifying women, fast money or drugs.

And think as the few. Take care & be safe. Rodney Barfield #1207384, Hodge Unit, 379 FM 2972, Rusk, TX 75785

Greetings. My name is Ronnie. I am a 49 year old African American male, 5’5, 175 lbs. I am presently serving a natural life sentence (life w/o). My time is spent doing legal research necessary in my mission to overturn my situation by appealing my case, reading, writing manuscripts and exercising. In my opinion, words are the most powerful and valuable thing in the world. With that said, through positive, encouraging, motivating and uplifting correspondence I am looking to build a meaningful friendship with mature individual(s) that has an overall positive mind and encouraging supportive spirit. I humbly wait to hear from those who wish to correspond. Ronnie Pugh #249863, St. Clair Correctional Facility, 1000 St. Clair Road, Springville, AL 35146

I am a 46 year old female serving time in Alabama. No prior criminal history and worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse for 15 yrs before the severe side effects of a popular stop smoking medication as seen on TV led to uncharacteristic criminal behavior that resulted in imprisonment. My appointed lawyer and the legal system left a lot to be desired. I am currently doing research on my own and I would like to correspond with anyone who is interested in friendship or who has had a similar experience. Jennifer Battles #303208, MWF, A-2-19A, PO Box 75, Mount Meigs, AL 36057

This is one of the most important decisions I’ve made. It matters that I get it right, it’s not easy putting myself out there, yet here I go stepping off the cliff into the unknown waters of what I’m expecting to be a beautiful life changing decision. I’m incomplete and have been for some time, it’s a shame because I’m at my best with my other half. A good man coupled with a good woman makes life a beautiful experience. She makes my thoughts easier to share, our laughter gets a little louder, our tears taste sweeter, our conversations flow like the golden rivers of Lebanon. I’ve had a positive effect on most people around me. What do I want most out of this correspondence? To find a friend/etc. that I can listen to and when asked share my views, my plans to reach the next step toward a happy stable life. I’m serving L.W.O.P., African American male 43 yrs old, 6’2, 235 lbs, brown eyes, nice smile, at least that’s what I tell the man in the mirror. I’m the perfect imperfection, the perfect part is my desire to grow, learn new things, be a part of a life that I never knew existed, most importantly breaking down barriers in my life, awhile opening myself up to the new. This is important and it matters, so if anything I’ve said rings a familiar tone, I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great day. Dimitra A. Gibson #242840, LCF, B-14-B, 28779 Nick Davis Road, Harvest, AL 35749

04-27-80 God created a handful…me! I was stubborn, opinionated, but very eager to learn. I’ve been through a lot in 39 years. Now I’m just looking to meet a good friend. We don’t need to lie or make any false promises along the way. I go home in the next 24 months, so I’m trying to reconnect with the outside before I do make that transition. All of my girlfriends left me when I got 2 years into my 15 year sentence, so I’ve been single 10 years.

If you said yes let me melt my detail to you…I’m 6’1, about 185 pounds with silky wavy hair. I am built like Michael B. Jordan in Creed 2. I’m a very fun loving person who loves to laugh, and find solutions despite the odds. I’m not looking for you to take care of me…I’m a grown man babe, I take care of myself. I’m just interested in what all the beautiful single ladies are doing out there?! I’m trying to grow out of the gang lifestyle and learn about something new. What can you teach me or show me? I want to learn how to draw, paint, dance, and stay out of prison. I also would like to travel to new places, and learn how to ride horses. I hope this is the beginning of a new friendship for both of us. Keep God first and the rest is simple peace! Tony Scally #G67776, CSP, A-3-125, PO Box 5004, Calipatria, CA 92233

To show and prove the real “Essence of Love”. I also want to explore the unique beauty of your mind, I will assure you that I’m very open-minded and a good listener.

Hello, Ladies. My name is Freddie Dean Jackson Jr. I’m a single, divorced 44 year old white male, but I’m told that I don’t look my age. I’m Irish-Dutch mix, originally from Lawton, OK which means that I’m a country boy with many interests. I’m 5’8” and weigh around 180 lbs, brown hair and blue eyes. I’m a very open-minded, kind-hearted, loyal, sincere, loving, trusting, caring, supportive, friendly, non-judgmental, laid-back, free-spirited, shy, compassionate, prideful, honest, sentimental type of guy. I’m really into camping, fishing, shooting pool, hiking, boating, traveling, mountain and rock climbing, skiing, surfing, swimming, hot tubs, horseback riding, bungy jumping, flying, driving, working, long walks on the beach, holding hands and kissing with the right woman (age and race unimportant), showing affection in public with the woman I’m with, cooking (candle-light dinners), flowers, watching movies and sports, and so much more! My truest and deepest desires are to make new friends and to possibly meet a beautiful, loving, kind, loyal, honest, sexy, supportive, stable, non-judgmental, secure woman. I’ve been incarcerated going on 10 long, lonely, and very depressing years with 7 to 10 years left to serve, so I completely understand that we all make mistakes and take the smallest but most important things in our lives totally and regretfully for granted. I don’t sit here making excuses for myself, my past mistakes, or for my actions in life anymore – nor do I accept excuses. So ladies, if you need a serious but loyal friend and advice then you can contact me. All correspondence accepted. Sincerely, Freddie D. Jackson Jr. #S06085, TCC, 1144 Illinois Route 29, Taylorville, IL 62568

The sun will rise and set, the seasons will change and the caterpillar will transform itself into a beautiful butterfly. Somehow I am reassured by this. I want to become the star of your life which brings you light in this dark world. I offer you the promise of renewal, the joy of living, the peace of mind which comes from sharing and caring and that shoulder to lean on in times of stress. I want you to be my precious butterfly and I will cherish you and love you forever. Sincerely, William Anderson #R22868, MCC, PO Box 1000, Menard, IL 62259

I’m 37 years old, born on 8-11-81. I have about 4 years left on my sentence. In my current ostracization I’m unable realistically to do much for anyone. So what I’m looking for is someone whom is understanding. Someone who is between the ages of 25-36 whom is genuine & wants to build a friendship. Someone whom I can eventually love in monogamy but in the current time can be supportive until I’m able to do for myself & reciprocate. I seek love in final aspiration but don’t we all, LOL? I have one son whom is 10 years old. Born the same day as me, 8-11-81 & 8-11-08. I would prefer a woman whom either has one child as I do (to blend a family) or none. But the world is not perfect & God has what’s planned already ordained. I’m looking for colored women, Asian, African American, Native American, Hispanic, or Asian Indian. Please with your letter send a photograph (up to 8 per postal package). After I receive a letter from you I’ll send a photo back & give you my Facebook page & email. I only usually accept people I know. In my absence my sister will be communicating for me via social media. I am an avid fan of music, jazz, pop, samba, hip-hop, some rock. I’m a fan of camping & outdoors. I like to dance & sing. I like motorcycles, SUVs & sports cars. When I’m released I will drive (I’m going to acquire a class A CDL license) trucks for a living. If you wish to know more and if you are willing to allow me to know you, please initiate contact & I will expeditiously respond. Thanks & God bless. I use the name Zion and when I’m freed I will not use William James Cross III, but it’s the name that I must use to receive mail, photographs, monetary contributions (packages), etc. William James Cross III #1115874, NNCC, PO Box 7000, Carson City, NV 89702

I believe in “do for self or suffer the consequences”, a saying from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I’ve studied with the N.O.I.., N.G.E., a little from Moor Science Temple, and a little from Dr. Maliki K. York. My hobbies include reading newspapers from Bay View which I get every month, working out, and strategizing on ways to be successful spiritually, psychically, and financially.

Open-minded, physically and intellectually attractive. Medium brown skin and hazel green eyes. Any and all communication is welcomed and appreciated. Age, race, and anything else is unimportant. Well rounded and down to earth. That’s just a little about me, however I leave with this: “This is just a comma in my life not a period! I’m a planted seed that’s growing, not one whom is dead and buried; although both do appear to be the same thing, because they are bot covered in dirt. I assure you there is a big difference between the two. One never rises again from the dirt as the other grows in accurate knowledge, wisdom and understanding. It later sprouts out of the dirt and turns into a Beautiful Rose!” I will now be like the hermit who hid from society and hope and wish for some communication. PEACE. Willie Jacko #1530332, Allred Unit, 2101 FM 369 North, Iowa Park, TX 76367

My name is Yuntrell Williams. I’m 42 and 5’6”. I work for a program called Choices. It’s a program developed and designed for 18 year olds coming into the system. Instead of throwing them to the dogs, this program helps them think and learn to be aware of your surroundings and your internal thoughts so they’re open to make better choices. I been incarcerated the last 13 years and I haven’t been able to experience raising 18 year olds, so this job is pretty tough. So I need for somebody who could give me some really good advice, so I can better understand their situations, and that might help me reach them. I can use all the help I can get. I’m trying to live a better life in the process for the right cause. So if you got any pointers, let me hear them.

My name is Angela Thornton. I have been incarcerated, in Texas, for 23 years. Needless to say, Texas doesn’t like giving women parole. My family has supported me this whole time. However now times are getting hard for them. My mom is aging (beautifully of course) and having a lot on her plate. I am seeking a pen-friend who can help me emotionally, financially, and in every way possible. When I first got locked up (1996) I did the whole penpal thing. It wasn’t for me. I received letters from people who were perverted and plain nasty. I’m not looking for any of that. I want a friend who wants to be friends now and when I’m released (I see parole in 2020). I’m 46 years old now and I’m working on my BBA in Management through Texas A&M. I only need 9 credits to graduate. I’m not looking to fall madly in love in my 2nd letter. I’m realistic. I’m 100% real. I’m not going to play games with you or myself. I want a friend – plain & simple. If anyone wants what I want – just write. Serious responses only please. No games. Sincerely, Angela Thornton #836182, Lane Murray Unit, 1916 North Highway 36 Bypass, Gatesville, TX 76596

I’m a 6 ft, 235 lbs, brown eyes, bald head, light brown, 49 yrs old (11-08-69) African American. I’ve been locked up a while now and I’m aggressively fighting for my freedom. While fighting I’ve become strong minded, positive with a real focus on achieving in the Now. I cannot change my past, but how I react to people and circumstances with anger, impatience, jealousy, immorality and selfishness, that has changed. I met Jesus Christ and I’m continually changing. I’m currently working on obtaining my doctorate in Biblical Studies at Shalom Ministry Bible College and Seminary. I’ve written several books one of which is currently published through, called “Chasing Evil”. I’ve designed a clothing brand in opposition to Nike. I’ve also designed new technological innovative concepts that I’m trying to get patented and prototyped for the Brand and beyond. Like for the Apple company phone hardware. People where I’m at call me a genius, Superbad, etc. and ‘I am’ because I can do all things through Christ that Strengthens Me. I’m searching for friendships with women who are outspoken, openminded, outgoing, straightforward, down to earth, that have no problem conveying her perspective, understanding, and loyalties; an empowered attorney who can help me with patenting my inventions; or people who seek ideas for their own business interest.

Is it possible to live life with no regrets? Hey, I’m not a PRISONER…I’m a PROPHECY waiting to happen! One day the OAK burst forth, awakening from its confinements in the ACORN. Everything in-between… “a WILD ride”! Every princess resents being robbed of her FIRST knight. Every Queen detests that dream where she finally claimed her King, just to be JARRD by the NIGHTMARE of cruel REALITY, “empty handed”!

Greetings. My name is David and I am a 43 year old white male. I am 6’ tall and weigh about 175 lbs. My eyes are blue and my head is clean-shaven. For all intents and purposes, the label of Buddhist is not inappropriate. For practical reasons, I have invested a significant amount of time studying law and related subjects including but not limited to economics, history and sociology. Truly, my interests are relatively unlimited. I am in dire need of quality conversation which transcends the mundane. As I am inundated by masculine energy, I deeply desire to offset this with the sacred feminine. I humbly thank you for your time and attention. Mr. David M.

My name is Nick. I’m in search of a pen-pal who would not mind writing and developing a friendship. Someone once said that a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet. I believe that is true, do you? I also believe that true friendships should be built on trust, respect, honesty, appreciation, sincerity, and attention. Because I believe in honesty up front feel free to ask any questions you may have for me, okay? No topic is taboo either! I am an artist and have cultivated lots of tattoos! I love to write letters and meet new people, and I really hope we can connect and become great friends. I don’t think we can have too many of those, do you? Nothing in life is guaranteed, but should you consider becoming my pen-friend, here are some things I can promise to be for you: Someone you can come to for comfort; eyes you can look into and trust; a heart that understands and doesn’t judge; a supporting shoulder to cry on; a door that is always open; and time devoted to you alone. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in then don’t hesitate to write back. Thank you for taking the time to consider my letter. I look forward to hearing from you soon. I hope you are blessed this year. “The road to the heart is the ear” – Voltaire. Your new friend, Nicholas Smith #11865856, Hughes Unit, Route 2, Box 4400, Gatesville, TX 76597

Although I’m physically confined within these prison walls, and recognize my reality for what it is, I do my best to mentally escape this bleak environment by always thinking outside of this box. Now, I would like to expand my little world by meeting people and making friends from all over and all walks of life.

Dear Readers – First and foremost, I am being held hostage in Columbia Correctional Inst. “Please Help”. There is a media blitz that puts it out there that men who are in prison are “No Good” and not even worthy of even having friends. Like the notion of dealing with us is a risk. That is not the case, I am Josh and I am a 6’1, 290 pound black man. I’m looking for a friend and I truly hope that is you. I’m looking for someone who is non-judgmental, funny, smart, and truthful. Even though I am in prison I have goals that I want to accomplish. I have completed my HSED, custodial classes, and I am about to start a paralegal course through the mail. I won’t lie and say that I don’t want anything from you because I am sure that you have enough people round you who want, need, and desire things of any from you. But what I want is simple, a chance. A chance to get to know you and to be the person you vent to and just be yourself. Sincerely, Joshua Towns #407238, SLF, PO Box 10, Winnebago, WI 54985

I enjoy reading, writing, learning, drawing, working out, listening to music, laughing, having a good time, and making new friends.

I’m open minded and have no specific expectations with this, though I hope to make greater friends, learn, feel, and have fun. I’m also open to sharing my experiences and giving a true perspective on prison life for those who are interested in that kind of thing.

Hello, how are you? My name is Anthony and I have placed myself upon this site as a long shot with hopes and prayers of meeting someone that would like to exchange thoughts, ideas, ambitions and experiences. My question is, are you that someone? To tell you a bit about myself, I’m an African American male with black hair, brown eyes, standing at 5’10. I have a great sense of humor, I’m a romantic at heart and I love to listen and learn what makes people who they are. I love children and have thoughts of being back into speaking to fatherless and at-risk youth about gangs, drugs, and staying in school. My values consist of honesty, love, honor, trust, respect, communication, loyalty, discipline, dedication, and patience. I believe that respect and communication should always be the centerpiece of my association and love and trust is earned. I am very interested in “plus” size women. Also, I’m in search of a pen-pal who would not mind writing and developing a friendship. Someone once said that a stranger is just a friend you have not met. I just want you to know that no topic is taboo either! Mr. Anthony Garrett #N72126, PCC, PO Box 99, A-201, Pontiac, IL 61764

I am a Political Prisoner. Never have I committed a crime. What I did do was document hundreds of crimes from murder down, ordered and committed by people in and out of this state and government, including a well known KKK member and racist corrupt government officials; then tried to expose those crimes. They tried to murder me twice to silence me. When those efforts failed they manufactured fake criminal charges and planted all the evidence. Never will I ask for money or legal work. I am a Political Prisoner, those do no good. All I am asking for is a pen pal or anyone willing to make known to the public the evidence I have showing my innocence. I will provide everything if they will put it on the internet and everything will be directed to me by instruction in the explanation pages for the documents. One person on the outside making noise is all it will take to free me because these KKK/Nazis know I cannot be stopped. Please, help! It will not cost you anything but could set off a revolution in this country. The time for talking is over. It is time to do. The Pledge of Allegiance says Justice for All not just those with money or political pull. If you want real Justice I will cause a seismic shift in that direction with a little help from you. All I ask for is the chance. Many thanks, Michael Crosby #535781, LSP, Jaguar 2L, Angola, LA 70712

I’ve finally gotten myself together. Living in a world full of problems – but allowing my problems to manifest vices that eventually led me here, I took charge of my visions. See, I “WAS” a dreamer. I’m multi-talented; I can play 8 instruments, I sing remarkably and I’m an inventor with 30 lucrative concepts – 11 drafted (so far) plus one in production. I recently discovered a talent for writing and I’m currently wrapping up a book called “The Black Saga Series”. It’s a compilation of short stories. Three books, Romance, Lust, & Drama. Each book will feature these three themes. Naturally, I’ve made amends with my talents (in prison) and produced million dollar entities branded under my umbrella. With focus & hard work, I’ll be worth billions. Being 6 foot 4 inches (barefoot) and very handsome with a sense of humor and poise of a saint, I’ve never had problems with the “ladies”. I’m only intolerant of wretched, disrespectful, angry, uneducated women with no mannerism or understanding of how the Kingdom of God works. I’m a praying man. Long gone are days when I ran the streets trying to get paid, or high or basically laid. Thank God, I’m now drug and disease free, focused and ready for one “virtuous” woman. I NEED a wife. Therefore, I’m only looking for friends right now. If something progresses, understand where it ends, marriage. I love my sisters. Oh how I’d love to marry, date, court, or befriend a beautiful black woman, but I’m open to everyone (no homo, no offense). Business partners, angel investors or investors are welcome.

Rabid prisoner’s rights activist seeks help. As a prisoner, I have networked with many other like-minded prisoners who want and plan to advocate for and help prisoners upon release. The ravages of post-incarceral life invariably interferes. What prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their friends and family need are tools that strengthen bonds and empower, that shine a light on the misdeeds of prison authorities, and that are provided by a self-sustaining infrastructure. I have education and experience that enables me to analyze the needs and to design and develop tools that meet those needs. As a prisoner I have the time to do all of this but I need free world help with making these tools a reality. Please write to me so we can start learning from each other ways to improve the world. James Weeks #1489149, Clements Unit, 9601 Spur 591, Amarillo, TX 79107

Peace and Blessings. I’m a 43 year old Brother, looking for several things (order does not indicate priority). (1) I’m looking to correspond with a woman with some depth to her, spiritually sound, intellectual but grounded. AS we correspond I want to be building, always…In other words I’m not just trying to talk, I want you to be capable of talking about something. Of course I would love to hear from my Sisters of the Struggle, Spirit of the Struggle. I really don’t have any specifics, I don’t care about race, age, religion, nationality, formal education. Come as you are, baggage included; I’ll have mine, for sure. I’m a single man, father and grandfather. Under my current circumstances my only desire is for us to come together from a level of mutuality, respect, and understanding – things that are essential for building. I don’t have too much time. I envision the rest of life as so different from the past. I know the people, places, and things that I can experience are boundless. (2) If you are a Brother and a comrade, please feel free to contact me. I do all I can to educate myself by reading books, but I look forward to that time where I transition from a P.O.W. to a free freedom fighter – Insha’Allah.

In the name of ALLAH. Hello, my name is IKRIYMAH MOHAMMED. I’m placing this ad for 2 reasons. First, I’m looking to correspond with an ethically strong & religious woman with the sole intent to marry, nothing less than to talk Islam & teach/learn from one another. I would like her to be age 21-40, no more than 2 children, but willing to have many more. The children thing is only because I want my own. Race and measurements don’t matter to me. My only care is that she strictly observes the proper Hijab & modest covering and that she’s also strict in guarding her chastity from illegal acts. I have a son from when I was 16 & never have I been married. My mother is from Sierra Leone, my dad is from Somalia. I was raised in DC and MD. I’m 29, 5’7”, 160 lbs. I’ve been in 8 years and I should be home in 2 years max, INSHA’ALLAH. I’m a SUNNI/SALAFI Muslim who adheres to the Quran and Sunnah, according to the understanding and implementation of the Pious Predecessors. I speak and write ARABIC fluently, I also speak Somali, Krio & Spanish. Here in prison, I’m one of the educational AMIRS, I teach ARABIC, AQEEDAH and TAJWEED. I’m an avid soccer FANATIC, I also indulge in dirt bikes & motorcycles. I love fishing, studying Islamic matters, riding horses, cooking and being in solitary – not confinement, but being alone, pondering & thinking bout life. Hopefully this proposal reaches a woman of character I’m searching for. My 2nd reason for this is to correspond with any Muslim about Islam and the things going on in the world such as famine, sickness, lack of food and water in Muslim countries as well as Rohingya type crises. Will respond to all who write me, for the sake of ALLAH – the most high. DeAndre Allen #400875, MCTC, 18800 Roxbury Road, Hagerstown, MD 21746

I’m reaching out to find a friend, pen-pal or just someone to share a smile with. My name is Milton R. Pollock. I was born 12/4/67 in Portland, Oregon but moved to California with my family at a very young age. As it is I am many miles away from home, family and friends. Trouble found me in my youth and I later awoke to find myself struggling to survive in the harsh realities of San Quentin’s Death Row. Refusing to accept that my life is ruined or wasted, I continually challenge myself. I’ve finished school, taken a couple college classes. I exercise to stay healthy and alert and I find comfort in my art work, making small posters and creating the perfect greeting cards. It would be amazing to show and share my art with others. I would like to correspond with a strong minded woman who would like to share thoughts and feelings about life and maybe get to know me like no one ever has? I’m not looking to play mind games. Just a compassionate friend who wants to write a man that once stumbled but didn’t fall. I will answer all, THANK YOU! Milton R. Pollock #J23700, SQSP, San Quentin, CA 94974

Attention Viewers! Intelligent, single, well-experienced Black man! If possible I’d like to take this golden opportunity to eliminate all the bad thoughts about me. Allow me to introduce myself. Standing at a gorgeous 5’8” excellence, brown-skinned, brown eyes and good hair. I’m born Eric Sudds but friends call me E-moe for short. Coming up in a hometown of Houston Texas, I also made bad mistakes and also learned from them honestly. I have a good sense of humor and love to make people smile. I’m a very open-minded person who will communicate with anyone who loves to enjoy life to the fullest! Also, coming up in life, I was introduced at a young age to music, so it’s been part of my life. And my journey is to actually advance in getting a major label to sign me. I have the luxury of being a singer as well as rapper extensive taste! Allow me to provide you with a small detail of my ease. I’ve been in a correctional facility since 2002 for “accessory of a bank robbery”, April of 2002 being so good-hearted to my friend some money and lent him my car to take his kids and baby-momma out for a nice time – something he had never done for his family. But he done otherwise! On my way to work the next morning I was surrounded by and drawn down in my car by Houston Police Department. I was arrested and put in custody. I was hurt but I could not see myself telling on a friend who had been my friend all my life growing up. But as the old saying goes your friends are not who you think they are. Before the life of prison, I enjoyed a life full of love, traveling, football, NBA and much more! I love meeting new people. The world is so full of great people I want to meet such as you. With that said, I look forward to surrounding myself with the great quality of you. I’m spontaneous, energetic and fun-loving. I’m looking for a free spirit like myself to communicate with and, if possible, share a life-long connection. Should be independent, intelligent, honest, understanding. Must be that “special someone” – race and age is so silly. Just be yourself and know that God is first. Truly, Eric Sudds #01212661, Coffield Unit X-122-T, 2661 FM 2054, Tennessee Colony, TX 75884

Hello Ladies. I’ve been blessed with this opportunity to fill this loneliness in my heart, and I’m hoping someone can look beyond my unfortunate circumstances and want to get to know me better. My name is Jesse Garcia, I’m 6’2, 200 pounds, and I turned 46 in July 2018 (Leo). I was born and raised in East Los Angeles, CA. However I’ve been in prison the majority of my adult life from making poor decisions and bad choices. But…I’m a different person today and much more mature, and God willing I’ll be paroled in about a year. It’s been a long time since I’ve looked for a friendship and/or love, cause I was blessed to be in a relationship for the past 10 years. But unfortunately sometimes things don’t work out as we want them to. ☹ No one wants to be alone nor did God intend us to be. So I’m opening my heart again and my wish is to find a solid friendship built on trust and honesty, because it’s how I live my life. I need a woman who respects herself and is open minded. A pretty smile doesn’t hurt either. 😊 I’m an open and easy person to get along with and my heart is filled with love and kindness. I treat everyone with respect and how I want to be treated. I have many desires and goals in life, but there’s nothing more important to me than giving back and doing something positive with the rest of my life. Well Ladies if you have room for a genuine and gentle soul in your heart I would be honored and love to hear from you. Take care & God Bless. Sincerely, Jesse Garcia #H30832, RJDCF, 480 Alta Road, San Diego, CA 92179

As an adolescent I became a victim of an injustice which caused my incarceration. Many tactics were utilized to secure my position as a prisoner, which I am currently addressing. Per my appeal, I’ve been given a second chance to seek justice as is necessary to address an injustice. Currently I’m seeking aid as is necessary to obtain a private investigator and as well payment for my appellate attorney who has acknowledged many malicious acts in terms of my being prosecuted as an adolescent delinquent. By me not knowing the law I became subject to false information and as well overlooking my youthful offender status. I’m now reaching out in hopes of getting aid in proving my innocence.

Unfortunately I’ve been incarcerated since I was 16, my earliest release is 2026. Born in 1995, Rochester, NY. Prison and all other life experiences have made me savvy and business minded, hungry for justice for myself and my people. Without being robbed of my childhood, and the tribulations I would not be able to have sympathy for men and boys who are emasculated, empathy for women who are left vulnerable and exploited, left alone to pass on a generational curse. On the contrary I’m still human, I love to travel, cook, write poetry; I’ve gotten my record label licensed with my brother. Business is everything. I love retaining knowledge and wisdom and using it to create something innovative. I like going against the odds. I’m hoping this ad helps me to find a friend who can help me get the most out of my time in prison. I would like to come home and have a beautiful foundation so I can smoothly build the rest of my future. Dedication, loyalty, consistency is something I deserve because I have that to offer plus more. A friend who can see my vision, and invest her time in it if she believes in it, is a friend who I want around for a long time because her goals are consistent with mine and I’ve sacrificed too much time to waste any more. Feel free to ask me whatever’s on your mind. I look forward to hearing from you. Ayotunji Akinlawon #13B3238, SSCF, 354 Hunter Street, Ossining, NY 10562-5442

I am a truck tire repair man by trade with 35 years of experience. I run a 24-7 road service truck, I was arrested @ work in March of 2018. I am on appeal now. I took a plea bargain because @ trial it’s hard to win if you’re a felon already ☹ Feel free to look up my public information online. I have nothing to hide and I do not lie and I will not lie. It seems, I can’t find a woman who does not use drugs in the state of California, it’s either “Meth”, “Norcos”, “Weed” or alcoholic related. I’m a recovering addict/alcoholic with no desire to use or drink. I am a very hard worker and I do alright on money too. I am single and I am from Southern California, San Bernardino/Riverside Counties, a little town called Yucaipa on the foothills of Big Bear. My mom and dad built a dome home in 1978 in Banning, California. I am white, French, Irish and English w/a German last name as my mom re-married. I look like the guy from the 1992 movie called “Heat” w/Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro and Val Kilmer. His stage name was Wayne Grove or Wayne Gro, he played a bank robber part. I have his face and all the Cos and inmate think I am an actor 😊 I wish, but not really. I like to read David Icke books and I listen to Coast to Coast and Ground Zero on 1460 AM @ 9:00 PM with Clyde Lewis, Ground Zero and George Noory @10:00 PM on Coast to Coast. I was raised with morals and values and brought up sheltered kinda. My real dad was a LA County Sheriff, my uncle was a cop, so was my sister. I am pretty lonely, my mom died from breast cancer and she was my best friend. I have a sister but we don’t talk. If you want to write I will be faithful, honest and real. With LOVE and Respect, Stephen Peter Depperschmidt #BF8693, CRC, PO Box 3535, Norco, CA 92860

My name is Keffier Savary. I’m a California prisoner, but I was born in Jamaica and raised in Miami, FL. I’m a 5 ft 9, darkskinned Black man. I’m a Scorpio and will be 37 this year. I currently have a life sentence. I like to draw and paint, please see the website . I also like to play guitar, piano/keyboard, and drums, and compose music. I am also an honorable discharged military veteran. I was wrongly convicted. I am seeking a good woman. I prefer quality over quantity. I’m looking for something on a friend level, but I’m open to more, even possibly marriage. Seeking someone who is open minded, honest, loyal, mature, not easily discouraged, who understands that nothing worth having comes easy. For me, race, religion, age, location, looks/physical appearance is not a factor. The inner beauty is what counts. No games. Ant something that can last a lifetime. I have Christian values. My desired woman doesn’t have to be Christian, but it’s a plus. If you are a lawyer or have the means to hire a lawyer to get me out, so that our relationship can break away beyond the confines & limitations of prison bars/walls – it’s a plus, but not a must. I do not have a phone, so don’t email me through the website. It is strictly reserved for clients. Someone manages the site for me. Write to me, you never know what the future holds. If you are not female then I’m open to “friends” only, nothing more. I’m a straight male. Keffier Savary #AN7306, CSP-SAC, B-1-123, PO Box 290066, Represa, CA 95671

To all the beautiful women in the world. This is Mr. Do Right getting at you in the form of a pen pal ad such as this. I am a black Afro American, who’s 52 years old. A God fearing man named King Michael. I am a very straightforward authentic person, who’s searching for my queen, Ms. Do Right. Age, weight, and race doesn’t matter. I’m seeking inner beauty in a beautiful woman who is filled with the love and Holy Spirit of God. I would like to develop a platonic relationship with that special lady. I have been incarcerated since 2008, and I’m looking forward to being released sometime in the future by the grace of God. I am not a lifer. My daily activities consist of studying the Bible, praying and meditating and encouraging my fellow peers to remain optimistic, clean and pure in their negative environment. I need and want to develop a pure and solid friendship with an authentic member of the opposite sex. I do not write poison pen letters, nor do I deceive anyone with phony lies and empty alibies as Rick Ross says I am the Truth. If you don’t believe me put me to the test, only then will you realize that you’ve found the best. Take this leap of faith and get at my without delay. This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Until I hear from you I remain. God bless you, and God keep you perfectly safe and sound.

Dear Readers – I’ve been reading the Bay View for many years now & it’s amazing that good people want to help change this corrupt system. I myself have ben an advocate for change, which in turn has made my journey extremely unpleasant. They haven’t broke me, however family & friends have gone away…& I continue to fight. It’s a lonely fight because people are attached to worldly possessions & are easily dissuaded. So I’m looking to share my story w/folk who want to know the uncut realness about what goes on inside these walls. Believe me these guys have psychological tactics that have broken the strongest of men. I’m a SF Mission District native, who’s made his way up thru the system from the Youth Guidance Center, I am currently at Pelican Bay. I’m a very proactive 41 yr old, all changing of myself has been on my own, & I thirst for knowledge. I’m the easiest going person I know, I’m rich w/life experience, & my intentions are pure. I love sports, music & reading. I’m not short on words & look forward to meeting some open minded folk for some deep diverse conversation & people who want to join the good fight. So please write & let me know what’s on your mind. Peace & Respect. Justin Canon #K81954, PBSP, A-4-123L, PO Box 7500, Crescent City, CA 95532

Greetings to all the beautiful Bay View Queen readers around the world. I’m really not all that sure of how to start this ad because this is honestly the first time I’ve ever attempted something like this…and normally I wouldn’t have ever thought about doing such a thing for the simple fact, I know the odds of actually finding someone that will share their time with someone that’s incarcerated are slim…But for some reason something keeps telling me to try my luck with Bay View…I’m down here in Texas serving a life sentence, just looking for someone that’s genuine and sincere who I can vibe with on an intellectual level. I’m 39, 5’10, about 185 lb. with a very healthy and attractive mind, body and soul, and a sense of humor that will always keep things interesting. If you want to give it a try then I’ll be more than happy to accompany you. Take a chance, I highly doubt you’ll regret it. John Arabie #1830833, Wynne Unit, 810 FM 2821, Huntsville, TX 77349

Wesley Lee Johnson here, DOB Dec 4, 1963 (age 55), born in Washington, DC. Height 6 ft 2½ in., weight 183 lb., dark brown hair and eyes, African American. For hobbies the prison setting does not offer many activities outside of what is the norm for most prisoners, so I usually play chess, stretch and meditate 4 times a day, exercise in the morning, write love poems and short verses of philosophy, draw whenever I can find something to apply my limited skills to, read books and magazines about fiction and fact topics, and study grammar so that I can constantly improve my ability to communicate my thoughts. I’m interested in corresponding with others as I have no insecurities about any differences which may separate us, because I’ve been looking for the inner essence of what connects us. So your handicaps, doubts, skin complexions, religions, race, height, or weight don’t calculate into the equation since I am just seeking to correspond with someone who can always be open and honest with me about their life, feelings, and thoughts as our correspondence develops. Cordially, Welsey Johnson #324059, Robertson Unit, 12071 FM 3522, Abilene, TX 79601

Hey, my name is John-Keith. I’m 48 years old and will be a year old 10-8-19. I’m a white male, 5’11” tall, 185 lbs., with a medium build. I have brown hair and playful green eyes. Look, I’m going to be absolutely honest with you. The 3 most important people to me have passed away in recent years. My mom in 2009, my dad in 2012, and my grandmother in 2016. The last couple of years have been difficult and very lonely. Though the rest of my family makes sure I have funds to help take care of my money needs, they don’t write. I haven’t had a letter in over a year and a half. Seeing others receive mail and talking on the phone makes my loneliness even worse, though I’m truly happy for those who have someone in their life like that. I would like to connect with anyone who is willing to give me a chance to be a friend to them. I would prefer a feminine perspective since I’m surrounded by men 24/7/365, but I’m open to all people. So if you have the heart and time to connect with a lonely soul, I’m more than happy to hear from you. Hope to hear from you soon. You can reach me at John Essary #762986, McConnell Unit, 3001 South Emily Drive, Beeville, TX 78102-8696

I’m African American, 30 years old & single. Seeking to connect with older women over 35 who are financially independent, fit and uninhibited. They run their own businesses, live by themselves. They’re significantly more experienced. They’re very confident in themselves and their body. Very often they take greater care of themselves than women half their age.
