I lived a life of isolation and suffer from tremendous inner turmoil. I never knew how to talk to people though I desire love and acceptance. I seem to only screw it up. It seems like I am living in a world where everyone is acting upon a script and guidelines they follow, and all I can do is try to stumble my way through this play we call life. Thankfully, in the moments I am granted the familiar "gift" of isolation, I express myself through drawing and writing. When I draw, I draw unguided and will draw anything in my vision or however my hand is guided. I am deaf, but I do have cochlear implants so I love music too. I escape the world in prison through reading sci-fi & fantasy.


I love dubstep, electronic music, dancing, beautiful artwork, cooking prison food. I am a prison guy Fiery. Dungeons & dragons. I want to be a fully changed person before I am free from prison.



As I sit here dreaming of you

Praying to god that my dreams come true 

you are the very thought that gets me through 

the day when I come home soon with you

My heart stays


1st verse: 


Thinkin’ in my mind that this is right

And knowing in my heart with you, I Want to spend my life - 

how’d I get so lucky to have you as my girl

Give me a chance, and I’ll give you the world. 

Life is hard, baby and people are mean. 

But you can keep your head high and lean on me if you need.

Every day’s a struggle but worth it in the end. 

To be with you as love and best Friend.


2nd verse: 


Wake up in the morning. You're the first thing on my mind. 

Day in, day out, thinking about you all the time. 

Give us a chance; we can mend your heart together, 

ride or die & we’ll always have each other.

I live the crazy life, run the streets day and night. 

I’m not used to having a partner, but I want you by my side.

Love is a crazy thing, but something we can share.

When you need me, baby girl, guess what? Just call, and I’ll be there.
