Hello everyone. If you’re reading this right now you may be feeling like I was when I wrote these thoughts. I wouldn’t quite describe it as lonely, it’s more of a feeling of curiosity mixed with a hint of optimism. I’m curious to know if there’s a woman or women out there who are willing to become a part of the life of someone who society has written off. Curious to know if there’s some women who feel as I feel who know that I am not my crime, but I am also a victim of this crime. I’m optimistic that there are some women who understand why I say that. I refuse to let one terrible day out of the 16 years I was alive on this earth at the time this crime was committed to define who I am as a person now. After years of negativity I’ve realized that I was indeed lost. And now I stand as a man. I’m not speaking as if there’s still no work to be done within myself. Because at the end of the day we are all a work in progress. I hope after reading these thoughts to hear from those of you who are like minded thinkers or who are looking for a nonjudgmental soul to correspond with in Spanish or English. I’m willing to go the distance to communicate with other women around the world because I could learn so much. Thank you for your time.
