‘It’s in arm’s reach. Can you feel it?’

Dear —,

What’s good with ya my friend? Everytime I receive a message from you I know somebody out there hasn’t forgot about me. My mood today is about good as it’s gonna get. Really lately my patience has been tested, sometimes I fail sometimes I succeed, feels good to win. For example, a c-o attempted to get me angry and out of character. But I held my composure. That piss them off, not giving them what they want. My Spanish-speaking friends are drawing y’all pictures to depict what the struggle is like. At least that’s what I think they said, lol. I see you can speak a little philosophy. Your ideas about society are unrealistic. Now, I’m sorry for being so blunt but you have provide me with a conversation I wanted to talk about for a min…You see there’s a certain power that only should be spoken about under our breaths. This power is so organized, so subtle, so complete, so pervasive that there’s no changing circumstances, only conquering opportunities that are presented to us so that we may rise in our limited circumstances. Now there are unique individuals that have the smarts to rise above, I guess the (illegible) of that is like 8% of the whole world. Maybe if they can come together and attempt to make a change, maybe it could be a balanced and united society. But then you have to ask yourself what is the true definition of a united society? Your interpretation may be different from mine don’t you agree? If only people like you ran the world huh? Lol. You see, —, this revolution that’s occurring now is just the beginning, a lot can change with numbers and a few good men and/or women. But in my eyes this is where the revolution begins and end at this county jail. Try to think about what you could accomplish in numbers. A push for unity, money for impoverished families, community awareness of the political and social issues today, maybe even a real like preparing school. The possibilities are endless. All it takes is this one movement to expand and rally focus its forces on bigger issues. Giving your movement media coverage I mean a real! society is in nothing but arms reach, —. Can you feel it?

But me I’m just a seventeen year old about to spend his eighteenth birthday in jail, on lockback with little to no hope, what do I know?

I encourage you to read on major revolutionaries like Mao-Tse Tung, George Jackson, Geronimo Pratt, Che Guevara, Mumia, a few of many of those special individuals I mentioned earlier.

Holler back brother,



It’s just begun!!!
