  • Here, my life behind bars offers understanding for those of you who venture into ‘the life’ with no understanding of its consequences: the adversity, the obstacles and the journey one must travel alone when the gavel is slammed, your cell is locked and the lights go out.


For I am not PERFECT, nor do I claim to be, yet, I continue to strive for PERFECTION. Life’s faults and flaws left me subdued until I learned to accept the true essence of EXCELLENCE. We are all predisposed to losing our ability to see beyond limitation because of undernourishment. Negation of the material needed, which feeds and supports the mind and spirit hampers our pursuit for PERFECTION.

But I ask- What is PERFECTION?
Is it the attainment of money, cars and clothes?
Is it the way we walk, we talk?
Is it unblemished skin and pretty brown eyes?
Or is it an understanding of self; the embodiment of truth and/or the willingness to act in its image?
A question posed that only you can answer for you, but know I share with you this:
No situation is the same. The fruits of righteousness or the suffering of savagery must be experienced alone. Never should it cease to matter, PERFECTION is not an illusion. The instance of failure will be bombarded by that which gives especial worth and value to one’s existence.
For I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be, yet, I continue to strive for PERFECTION!
