Searching for Friendship

My name is Lorenzo Solvano Balli.

Everyone has a story and I’d like to be able to hear yours , and maybe be given a chance to share mine.. Although we may be worlds apart, there are qualities of understanding, patience, and the willingness to extend themselves, these qualities are what brings people together from all walks of life and creates that social bond called friendship. I hope I can be given that chance to be a friend to you and we can get to know each other.

Sincerely ,

Mr Balli is in segregation and working hard to keep himself sane and well . Read  some of his works and his attempts to get improved conditions for all prisoners in seg.

In life we all make mistakes – we choose a path which at first seems to be the right one – However, half way through the walk you realize you were so very wrong – It’s not how you lose but how you pick yourself up and dust off –

This, you, are my new road –

Don’t worry about pot holes or sharp turns - I’m a straight shot – honest, loyal, no games or drama – just one human looking to meet another who loves life, laughing, music and is willing to risk a little in order to get a lot. Are you her? If so, take my hand and let’s start the journey of friendship-

Robert Erickson

What can I say as an introduction to who I am, that in your thoughts will set me apart? What can I say that will peek your interest and make you feel that starting a friendship will be worth the start? Now I can be bland, you know, average and describe the color of my eyes, weight, and height; but what would be the fun in that right. I can be sweet and kind. I can be cruel and bitter; that's something to consider. But unlike beauty something that won't fade with time is a friendship with me.

My name is John but everybody calls me Jay since I can remember ( there were three other Johns in my family). I live in a small resort town outside Ashville, NC in an area known as the ”Land of the Waterfalls”. It is a stunningly beautiful region that continues to amaze me even after living there for over twenty years.
I’m a 46 year old white male, 6’3”, 180 lbs. I enjoy mountain biking, back packing, whitewater and occasionally snow skiing. I’m serving an 80 month sentence for felony larceny and some lesser drug offenses- a sentence I’m about half way through. I’m now a a small minimum custody center waiting to begin the spring semester of a year -long electrical writing program, after which I hope to spend my last 24 months on work release.
Guess it would be easier to describe what I miss rather than what I like. I miss sunsets and sunrises, I miss dog collars jingling when I slam the car door. I miss watching thunder storms form my front porch, the smell of freshly turned earth and the smell of tomato leaves. I miss the smell of coffee brewing when I step out of the shower in the morning. I miss driving down a dirt road or hiking down an unmarked trail simply because I don’t know where it goes. I miss the ability to get away.
I hope to hear from anyone who wants to write.

I am a 24 year old male with blond hair and blue eyes. I grew up in LaCrosse, WI, where my brother and I were raised by our mother. I spent many long days babysitting my brother while my mother worked 13 hour days 5-6 days a week. This was hard on a young boy not being able to be out with friends and stuck inside all the time.
I was never really close to my mother until I got older. I grew up with a lot of anger in my heart. I think all that anger led me to a life of crime. I’ve had a few jobs but they never lasted long.

Jared Fischer

Jared Fischer 279834
PO Box 351
Waupun, WI 53963

My name is Jared Fischer. I’m a 34year old white male that has been incarcerated since 5/04 and have just under 23 years left to go. The majority of my time stems from stabbing a police officer –the rest followed as a night of bad choices ran out of control. I have reservations about going into it further at this time as it is hard to understand how a person can do something like this unless you have been in a similar situation. I have no illusions about my crime, there is no one to blame but myself. I have accepted full responsibility for my crime and now find myself on a hopeful path to a better tomorrow.
Since my incarceration I have bettered myself by finally following through with my HSED and some vocational courses- I’m also trying to reestablish my faith in a god that I feel has ultimately left me behind. I’m finally to a point where I realize it is okay to reach out again and open , myself up to some else-always taking a chance. Because, to me , it is taking a chance.
You see, I was raised with an abusive father and ion our home there was no closeness, or real family values at all or anything of a normal nature. That being said, any relationship I entered into, whether it was friendship or otherwise, I was more “passionate” about it-always trying to find that ”closeness” that I lacked growing up, but in the end I am always the one loving or caring too much, always the one ending up getting hurt.
This chance is mine to take and I am doing so because I need someone that I can just talk to, someone that can look beyond the bars that I sit behind and see me as the person I am. I am lonely and alone and feel I have so much to offer to that person who is willing to take a chance and extend a hand in friendship. I guess I am saying I am so much more than a number, I’m a person that puts real value on companionship. If you are willing to take the chance and the time on a n interestingly unique type of friendship,, hen please write to the address listed above. I will be waiting.
p.s.: Any age welcome
Only sincere people please.

I have more than a passing interest in the struggle and how it effects prison life, whether bit be improvements in living conditions, resolutions for abuse and/or prisoner rehabilitation. I’m in my 23rd year of incarceration but the longevity does not decrease my love of life. I love everything about life, the joys, the struggles, the familiar, , the new, the hope of understanding some of life’s mysteries. I’m in administrative segregation, have been for three months and I’m at a prison that has the distinction of being the only prison in America and possible the world, that has its death row prisoners in all parts of the general population :they cell , eat, rec with general population prisoners. Potosi is about 40 miles south of Saint Louis in a VERY rural area, The prison, PCC, is so rural that it has only had 6 Black officers presents several problems-if you’d like, I could share some very interesting stories.
Since I am in ad seg and have no access to a typewriter, I will submit a poem everyone seems to like.

Goddess of the Ocean
You came into m life so suddenly it seems,
You took me through reality, then placed me in a dream.
I woke reaching for you only to find that you had gone.
You revealed to me your mystical charms and then left me all alone.
My mind was in a cloud high above the world,
Soaring like an eagle because you were my special girl.
I never thought a man like me could fall from just one glance,
But now I’m caught up so deeply cause I dared to take a chance
I thought I was the captain and ruler of my destiny
But I as a mere tow-a -way on a lost and lonely sea,
My heart was shipwrecked on a dark and desolate land
I had no will, no future, not even a simple plan,
My soul was wondering with no course or direction
Seeking for warmth, shelter, or just any kind of protection,
It’s so strange how you entered my life when there was no open door
But then I saw you coming from off a distant shore.
I tried to introduce myself and tell you why I was there,
But you placed your hands on my lips and whispered you didn’t care.
You said you already knew me fro you had watched for many -a –day,
You knew my name, my past and the troubles that caused me to stray
I never dreamt someone like you could care for me so much
But you erased all my doubts with your smile and intimate touch.
I thought you’d always be with me and I forever you man
But the only thing you left me were our footprints I the sand
I try to remember the things you taught me about life and what it will unfold
But the only thing that comes to focus is the woman I long to hold.
Now my mind tells me its all a dream, made real my confused emotions
But my heart says that you’re out there, somewhere,
My lady, my Queen, My Goddess of the Ocean
