    Lets take it back to 1776,where they made the decleration of independence, now we livin in a different demention, where if we kill we get a life sentence, its up to us to make a decision,an choose wether or not to pay attention, most of us will listen, An Most of my homies will end up in prision, An afta a couple yrs they will try to listen, An pay attention an get wat they been missing, But its too late they already made they're decision, They got sent to the system, Now they're identity is digits, But some of em on a mission , I heard them conversating in the kitchen, They planned wen they get premission, to go out an drain the water for the dishes, They planned at 1200o clock the guards will be dismissing, An at that time they can go up through the kitchen, through the doors an up to the cieling, Wen the guards all started to work they seen sumtin was fishy, They checked the cell an seen they was missing, They grabbed armor an weapons Cause the cell mates was defensive, They hoped that the guys will just come an surrender, But instead they got guns an high tech equipment, The guards fired shots an some one got injured, His name was josh spencer, Spencer wanted to be the oppisite gender, Spencer stuck up for his homie lamar penter, Penter was locked down for a robbery wit david kentis, Lamar realized they had bob wire over the fences, So he came out an surrendered,

    I remember the other day when you came to the NCLR (National Council of La Raza) and performed your poems. I found that they were very inspiring and that my friends and I should spread the message to other people! Maybe they will get inspired and also do the same. :agree::love::) Please come visit the Latin American Community Center in Wilmington, Delaware because I know these kids and my co-workers would enjoy your company.

    Hello, you have an amazing talent. I saw you during the USLI conference in Chicago this year. Unfortunately I didn't get to go to your work shop but my classmates bragged about you. As we speak my Public Speaking class is asking me to perform a poem that sends a strong message. I decided to choose one of yours "Let’s Take It Back to the Good Old Day". I will work- cite no worries. Que Dios te Bendiga con muchas oportunidades y exito! -Julisa Reyes :love:
