    He Ain’t Yo Husband

    E2A2BF20-BD7F-472D-BCEA-E73716D6F619
    While you crying over spoiled milk he's putting a smile on someone else's face. Why are you crying? It's obvious that he didn't care about you to begin with. Most people in prison tend to look for comfort from whoever is willing to give it to them at the moment. So, they do watever they have to do to get it. Lying and manipulation is two of th...

    “Dearest Husband”, May - by Salute Da Philosopher & Dearest

    70CB3DEE-E88F-40EF-A7FF-FB9646656BB6
    May 1 Dearest Husband,  My heart is filled with love for you but the pain of leaving you there doesn't get better with time. You keep a smile on your face like it's not you with the bid and after all these years you stay positive. When you go back behind that steel door I feel like I'm the one in a cell and this is just some crazy dr...

    Corruption vs. Correction - by Salute Da Philosopher

    62ECC77A-224E-4ECD-8425-2E1CA07E8452
    Spending the last seven years in here, prision, I can say, being incarcerated doesn't mean that you'll change for the better. It wasn’t created to rehabilitate. The Department of Corrections is suppose to be a form of helping people correct their ways but it actually corrupts instead of correcting behavior. Life on the...

    Abuse is the New Suicide

    CA4ED803-C90D-415A-80DD-28C9E03B12C7
    I don’t know about you but I can’t see in the dark. So, I’m ashamed to tell anyone what I have allowed in my life. A slow, unconscious suicide, walking in a shadow of death. But seeking relief from other pains, from other things is why I started to self medicate with self hate. You see I had this big hole in my heart. Pierc...

    “Disguised As God” - Keeping up with the Con

    84767DED-C4D3-4986-9EB4-CDE24195D232
    My hand was hurting from all the writing I had done. I felt like I was in grade school when the teacher would have you write punishment sentences 100 times each from the board. I only had 2 more letters to go. I tried to get at least 10 in every night. I was good at math and it was just basic probability that I would catch at least 2 winners a mont...

    “Disguised as God” - Visitation

    C2959F59-6273-4B26-A6EB-BD632808D071
    I knew the congregation would fill quickly in the large cafeteria like space because it was Saturday. The blue connective chairs with an end table after every two, was where we had our weekly date. The sterile, cold environment with a small tv, that you could not hear, mounted to the wall served as our entertainment. There was a mural of what looke...

    “Disguised As God” - Am I Next?

    9DDE99EE-142A-4F0E-9B66-B34327E81F18
    "Can we all agree that the relationships between slaves were complicated ones? In many cases, husbands and wives lived on separate plantations, unable to build a bond that promoted love and security. But they still "jumped the broom", as the West Africans of Ghana taught them to. Marriage between slaves was real. You had to respect them for even co...

    Change is local. I know that for certain and when I decided to branch out to create local publications throughout the East Coast and eventually nationally, I caught so much resistance and flack from my own people. "You're not from Salisbury". "You gonna fail out here". No, I'm not from Salisbury. I am idealistic woman, a visionary from Queens, NY, ...

    ​Many have foolishly attempted gardening, as the realization that we are being poisoned by processed and fast food chains sink in. Yet one of the most common problems with this undertaking is most don’t know the difference between a plant and a weed. Just for the record, a plant wants to feed you, a weed wants to kill you.&...

    Always Faithful to God

    D43814AD-CA84-477A-8AE1-778BCBA4614D
    I gave my husband my everything. I even purchased my own prison wedding ring. I created an island from everyone that I loved and when he left in the most vile and hateful way, no one was there except He above. No one was there to say, stop this, I know Dearest, this ain’t true. I laid in the valley of the shadow of death an...

    Facebook Slavery

    50925494-D348-4873-8760-ACAA832DDE1B
     I use to post my words on Facebook until I learned they owned those words without compensation. They enslaved those words with their regulations. They exploited those words with market trends. They capitalized on those word, Blacks never receiving the ends. They pimped those words to make us fight. They changed those words which wasn’t r...

    12 Years for Lyrics??? NaNa

    23B03741-2B03-4882-9C22-4B45531C0342
    We already have a dilapidated penal system, incarcerating Black men at astounding rates for acts that are “straight up” legal when done by white counterparts but the case of rapper NaNa is just too much. The Dallas native has been charge by Judge Barbara Lynn with 12 years for his rap lyrics. She is quoted as saying, “You'r...

    You deserve flowers

    1DE9B301-ED57-48EE-8C0F-E103EA7A4550
    ​The bouquets of assorted flowers in the fruit section of Walmart never meant much. It never occurred to me that no one had ever given me flowers or that the floral arrangements were symbols of love and admiration. I mean I didn’t feel bad about the fact. I just never thought of it. But as I happened to walk through th...

    ​The first time we laid together confirmed he didn’t love me but he was so good as he grinded above me. I mean I was astounded by how he just took me, licking every inch, killing my spine with ecstasy in me. I never got it that way before but I knew he didn’t love me. Kissing my lips below my blouse, doing those things to me.&nb...

    ​Daughters, future mothers, sustainers of creation, have we let you down? Have we forgotten to nurture you into the tremendous role of woman? Have we left you for the predator to devour, not taking into consideration that the serpent has sexualized your image, molested your purity and raped your minds? Have we exploited the...
