Inside Eddie’s Daydream #25

I finally received a letter from a woman that I sent a letter to in the woman’s prison facility. Unbeknownst to me, I sent her a letter twice. She thought that I was a businessman. She even assumed that I bought prison textbooks for prisoners. She sent me a list of some textbooks that are ridiculously overpriced.

Life never ceases to amaze me. Lol. I will respond to her, but I am still going through a time consuming task that I am being discreet about. Just had to hit the WordPress family with an update.
I will send her some business books, but not the ones she is requesting. Seems like a textbook hustle to get commissary funds.

I am so sorry for not updating you guys with what is going on with me. I have an auspicious situation that came out of the blue. I know it was an unnecessary big word, but what the hell, the dictionary is too big. I won’t give all the details until I get some more Intel, but damn I’m shocked. 


As far as the let project, A.J has been exploring the meaning of that book I gave him. I can’t wait to post his letter, I probably will do so tonight. He is headed in the right direction.

“Hey Eddie, 

    This is Adolphos,

I received your letter. You responded so quick, caught me off guard. I have already sent you a letter right before this one. I guess a second won’t hurt. I also sent a poem. I think you might like a lot. That’s the way I express myself. You said me getting chosen was extreme luck. I call it a blessing.

Eddie I feel like this moment to get my voice out there, also have somebody like you listening to me and understanding that it is not easy in here. In your letter you mention Malcolm X. That’s crazy because he is my role model. I have read all his books and speeches. I know what he is about and while I am not Muslim, I understand his views. 

(By any means necessary)

I got so much to say about prison, where do I start, I am currently in the hole. The police say I had a knife in my cell. I was in high desert, I still belong to that prison. You name it I’ve done it here e.g. riots, stabbings, got shot. I had it hard in prison. With gods blessings I will be out very soon, I don’t have life sentence.

Well I will let you go until the next time I got another poem I am working on and will share soon. I hope you can be that help I am looking for. (With respect Adolphos)

Please give me feedback on the poetry 

Thank you a lot ☺”

Wow I actually made it to my 23rd day dream. I am currently working on a piece that delves into the relationship between Alpha black males and black homosexuals. I think it will be an interesting piece.

Between the fires in Tennessee, the terrorist act at Ohio State university, the acquittal of a murder charge to another rogue policeman, and the slaying of former NFL player Joe McKnight, media has been a depressing thing to watch. By the way: people in FLINT, MI still don’t have clean water, the #NoDaPL protests have been blacked out by most media outlets, and voter suppression tactics are impending with Steve Bannon having an important input to Trump’s strategy.

Sometimes I sit and think to myself, “man, this shit is hopeless”. I know I was once fooled by the election of Obama, buying into a post-racial America. The truth is I was blinded by symbolic victories over actual facts. I am at a point now where I completely understand how real change will happen. It starts with altruism, and wisdom of self. Realizing we live in a system that is worldwide. It starts with de-colinizing ourselves and our behavior towards each other. The African natives still have colonized minds due to having their resources stripped from them and distributed worldwide. They have this white-savior complex that we have in the states, and don’t believe in pan-africanism like Garvey and W.E.B. DuBois. 

Only solution is to try to educate those who want to be educated. Too much denial and delusion going around nowadays.
