    Saggin’

    The following is a guest post written by Roosevelt Wilder while at Stateville Correctional Center (Joliet, Illinois). Wilder has since been transferred to Danville Correctional Center (Danville, Illionis) where he is serving a 60-year sentence for murder. He has been incarcerated since 1995. Fruit of the loom Saggin’ from the ass of the fruit of the womb. Ashy backs and ass cracks Sadly, howling at the moon, Doomed . . . before they could learn to eat with a spoon Consumed . . . by the...READ MORE

    Evil I See You

    It’s evil, It’s evil! I’m human, but I wish I didn’t know people I’m better with no equal, there’ll be no sequel, the beginning and ending is me, Alpha and Omega to believe Seize thoughts of envy, control your jealousy, so what you’re telling me, bears no relevancy The legacy’s mine! Live a legend, die a legend, in time You ain’t happy, in misery, trying to trap me with wickedness you spit, lips drip poisonous venom Your limbs testify to...READ MORE

    Bear Witness to America’s Massacre

    It was seven when I heard the sirens I had to get away, but my legs wouldn’t move. I was running nowhere fast. Suddenly, I was face down. 1, 2, 3 officers hard tackled, knee in my back, arms wrestled behind me. My rights were never read; was told I had none. To take another man’s life is said to be the most egregious sin, and so is the denial of justice. Head mushed down, cop car door slammed shut. “We got ’em Capt!” Mistaken identity, my guilt...READ MORE

    Justice and Peace

    I used to fight over colors I used to fight over territory to hustle on I used to fight over disrespect I thought I was hard I thought I was like that I thought I was a man, but deep inside I was emotionally distressed, mentally depressed. I was cold; I was just-ice I was in a state of imprisonment within myself In my prison I had fights with me I had constant lockdowns I felt all alone, with thoughts of homicide, suicide and many other violent injustices. I believed I was a victim of...READ MORE

    Look at Me

    When you look at me — I’m more than the flesh you see. You see a person, but that’s not me. I’m what your eyes can’t see. I’m the spirit that occupies me. I’m more than me. I want you to get to know who I really am, outside of what your eyes may see. This body is something I use to navigate this existence because we existed before the body we chose to inhabit. We fall short when we associate who we are to the body we dwell In darkness, we navigate the...READ MORE

    Tricknology

    Systematic annihilations, schemes that are devoid of love, Deceptive Intelligence, Mass Confusions spilling Blood- Of the innocent, though they think they’re guilty, Tainted by evil, taught by those who are spiritually filthy- Liars, Deceivers and Non-believers perpetrating the Fraud, They lust to do wicked with less discipline than a dog- Who is this beast spoke of in Revelations? Creating problems, manufacturing demonic Situations- It’s a man, not a spook, with a diabolical...READ MORE

    King of Hearts

    Under lock and key caged in concrete, away from the world where no eyes can see, under armed guard windowless doors with iron bars, here lies The King of Hearts – words are razor sharp his oratory must never be allowed to start chained hand and foot, he must remain confined to a cage kill the king’s voice and we’ll never need to fear his rage; silence him in an above ground grave, misguided and pacified the people suffer in silent pain miseducated they know their...READ MORE
