As I approach this stage, I greet every fighter in any struggle with peace and strength. My name is Teddrick Batiste and I am 33 years old. For the last 12 plus years, I’ve been detached from human society due to my actions as a boy. Unfortunately, I’ve learned a few things slowly, but I can say I learned them well. I’m extending my positive energy to anybody willing to build a solid foundation. I’m a very communicative person that prefers realness over passiveness. I’m an artist, writer, reader and a pleaser, amongst other things that highlight the character in me. I think very highly of myself and take my health, mentally, physically, and spiritually very seriously. I value friendship with everything within my sight and just take it a day at a time. Sitting on death row, it’s a hard struggle, but you gotta keep on pushing and looking. I’m just looking for friends, gender not important. I just want to continue to grow shine and receive light and create some smiles and a few amazing moments that could come with what new people could create. On that note, I close as I come and thank you for your shine, my info is Teddrick Batiste #999568, Polunsky Unit, 3872 FM 350 South, Livingston, TX 77351 p.s. please NEVER stop fighting!

I’m a SBM, 59, 6’4 ½”, 214lbs; I am handsome, intelligent, articulate, compassionate, attentive and down to earth. I come to you, God as my witness, as a sincere man full of truth.

I come as I am; and I am as I come: in respect!

Greetings… my name is Richard McCoy. I am originally from Chicago IL. But grew up in Missouri. I’m 39 years old, 5/6 and 190 pounds. I have 18 months left inside these walls. All are welcome to write. My aiming target is in the sky… ’cause I’m shooting for the stars. I know the struggle firsthand to not be able to relate with all those in it. My goal is to seek out new friends… maybe more. I’m able to send photos if you’d like. Also you can go to jpay.com and add me by putting in my name and number #1000485. Might I add that I am not biased to any gender, but I am 100% straight. And would only prefer to correspond with women of any and all races. Truthfully, I’m so close to the door I could care less if I never receive another piece of mail. Therefore, please sincere replies only. I’m too grown for games! Upon my release I plan to open my own business… and a few other things. But whomever is a part of a “caravan” will prevail to the highest elevation possible. All I can do is hope and pray that the powers that be send me sincere and blessed individuals who are very compatible. Well, since I’ve shared a portion of myself with you… maybe you can return the favor. Take care of yourself and family in the midst of this pandemic. I leave as I came: in respect!

Hello to all the ladies who could be reading this. My name is Tyrone, but you can call me Black Ty, which is what most call me. I’m 6 foot and my body is covered in tattoos because I love artwork. I weigh about 235 pounds of sheer niceness, if that’s even a word. I have light brown, smooth skin, low cut eyes and a neatly kept full beard. I have dreads that are well kept even without a retwist. I like to write poems, I love to write music as well as perform it, from rapping to creating the right beat. I love to study about different races that have also been through what my race of people have been through. I believe all lives matter no matter the race or beliefs of a person. What I’m looking for is someone that is serious about wanting to start a relationship but also is aware that friendship is the foundation for a relationship first and foremost. I’m 35 with no kids but looking to have some in the future. I work hard and play hard so the hustle is more than just doing and having one hustle. The mind is beautiful when you find out how to use it right… lol. I don’t mind women of different races. I don’t see skin color but the heart of a person. Don’t get it twisted either… I’m not looking for a monster with one eye or anything… but I am looking for someone that is also easy on the eyes. I like thick women with a nice butt, thighs and some nice C cups… I like my slim thick ladies too that can hold a good conversation with some substance to it. But let me wrap this up- but leave the best for last I’ll be home in 2024 ladies. To hit me up, just get on my J pay so we can email and go from there.

Greetings, my name is Bruce, though most people address me as Sojourner. Thank you for taking the time to read this; it is a pleasure to meet you. Who am I? I am a 32-year-old, single father of three young sons. I am currently imprisoned, but I am not defined by the crime I committed. I am a Christian. Also, I am an aspiring writer. Here are a few random things I enjoy: Furthering my education, reading, exercising, playing chess, sports, traveling, cooking, the arts, some television, the outdoors, business and above all, helping others any way that I can. Presently, I am making preparations for a successful reintegration into society. Though I’ve hit rock-bottom, I’ve discovered that rock-bottom can be a foundation on which to grow. I’m interested in communicating with anyone interested in communicating with me, a humble prisoner. I may not be able to offer you much, but what I can offer is true friendship, dedication, devotion, loyalty, a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on, words of encouragement, fellowship and love. I look forward to making your acquaintance. God bless you! Bruce Jackson, USP Lewisburg, 72214-050, P.O. Box 1000, Lewisburg, PA 17837

Poet, Lyricist, Entrepreneur, Visionary. My name is Rashad Amir El. I am African American/Native American, 6’4”, 225 lbs., muscular, athletic build, tattoos, 35 years old with no kids. I have chestnut-brown eyes and low-cut hair (usually in 360 waves). I’ve been locked up since 2010, am currently fighting a life sentence, but have an extremely good chance of seeing freedom; so, my time is spent in preparation physically, mentally, spiritually and by building the foundation of my future empire. I have published two works of poetry (one is an e-book, the other a paperback), released music online and ghostwritten for a few aspiring rap artists in the free world. Currently, I am preparing to publish three more books, three more mixtapes and send out samples of an idea for a clothing line I created. Once released, I plan to start my own record label, publishing company, non-profit organization and more! The only limitations are the ones you set on yourself! I am extremely ambitious, spiritual (in terms of studying universal law) and self-sufficient. I am looking for a woman to form a friendship with that may have the possibility of becoming something more (race, age, looks are not important). I can send pictures if you’d like. If you choose to respond and send pictures, they have to be sent in a separate envelope from the letter.

Hello there, I’m just a country boy from Texas who is open minded and looking for friendships. Interested in talking to real down to earth people. I will be getting out this year and have been on a lot of pen pal services trying to meet people but I’m beginning to think that I don’t have any game left to pick up women.

Dear Bayview Reader, My name is Agustine Diaz. I’m a 39 year old tattoo artist and rapper from Bryan, TX. (Youtube; Augustine Diaz) I have to do a little time for evading in a vehicle. God willing, I will be home soon. My reason for writing is not only to submit my information for the pen pal page but to point out something Marcus Garvey said in the 1970’s, that the founders of this nation did not do so to hand it over to people of color. This is what Donald Trump and his MAGA supporters understand. Our brothers and sisters in the BLM movement can keep on peacefully protesting but the sad truth is that force will continue to be used against people of color. Brother Malcolm X once said “To join my movement, you have to be willing to go to jail, the hospital and even the cemetery” I am a Muslim. I believe in a life after this and I am down for the cause. I’m for the people. When I get out I plan on joining the Black Lives Matter movement. I am a registered member of the Brown Berets based out of San Antonio, TX. I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. Augustine Diaz, #2309414, 1391 FM 3328, Tennessee Colony, TX 75880


Thank you to all the amazing people that take a chance on us, to get to know our story. A bit about me: I’m serving time in a California State Prison.

I enjoy watching cooking shows like Rachel Ray or Pati’s Mexican kitchen. I’m biased towards Mexcan food, of course. How about tamales? Or tacos…enchiladas…I’m sorry, what was I talking about? LOL Upon my release I wish to continue my education and attend university. I also want to continue to do art and hopefully one day I will be able to do it for a living I’m passionate about prison/criminal justice reform and I plan on incorporating elements of that into my art. If you have any questions ask away, I’m an open book. Out of so many other things you could do with your time, I’ll be blessed to receive a letter from you. Best regards, Ulises Kline, #AG4252, P.O.

One might say my good qualities are being a good listener, spontaneous, like to have fun and make the girl I’m with smile. In my spare time I enjoy poetry, books, entertainment, art and dramatics. I’m a God fearing man. I do not judge others who are of a different belief than myself. I’m willing to write to females that are incarcerated as well as females around the world. I like a female who’s honest, open-minded and upfront about everything. I look forward to hearing from y’all lovely ladies soon. I will respect anyone who decides to write and respect those who decide not to. Looking for a friend is what I want. You can also reach me by jpay.com.
