Not a Joke

GOD I WAS SORRY AND HE GAVE ME STRENGTH TO TAKE ALL BAD THOUGHTS OUT OF MY MIND GOD USED MY DAUGHTERS TO GIVE ME HOPE AND SEE MY MISTAKES THROUGH THAT LETTER I BEEN IN PRISON ALMOST 20 YEARS MY DAUGHTER’S LETTER CHANGED MY WAY OF THINKING THIS HAPPENED IN 2007 THEN THEY SENT ME TO ACOLMA USP THIS PRISON IS IN FLORIDA BUT THE DEVIL ALSO HAD SOMETHING WAITING FOR ME  THE DEVIL KNEW I HAD MUCH FAITH IN GOD SO WHEN I ARRIVED TO FLORIDA THEY TRIED TO KILL ME THERE WAS A BIG RIOT 42 PAISA’S WHERE STICKED THEY HAPPENED IN 2008 BUT THE ALMIGHTY GOD DID NOT PERMIT ME TO DIE THAT DAY I DON’T KNOW WHAT GODS PLAN IS BUT EL COCHO IS STILL ALIVE TODAY.

WHEN YOU MAKE A DECISION THINK ABOUT IT ANY TIMES ALSO LOOK WHO YOU HANG OUT WITH THERE IS PEOPLE TO SAY THEY ARE MEN BUT WHEN SOMETHING’S HAPPEN THEY BLAME EVERYONE ELSE AND THERE GRANDMAS IN PRISON YOU LOSE EVERYTHING FRIENDS THAT SAY ARE YOUR FRIENDS NEVER REMEMBER YOU PRISON IS NOT A JOKE I SEEN MANY GOOD FRIENDS CRY AND OTHER GO CRAZY SO THINK RIGHT BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING OK…. THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY THINGS I LIVED BEING HERE IN PRISON……
