To Whom this Letter May Concern: My name is Minister Khalil Shabazz Muhammad A Washington State prisoner. I am writing concerning your writing program. I am interested in your writing program itself.
I feel the restraints that society brings the sorrow, pains and the extreme chaos it gains why do we “the misunderstood” stand accused of these things labeled as incorrigible then locked up in chains?
It that any way to show us wrong from right?
To lock us in dungeons never again to see the light of freedom?
"Why!” is all I can cry and scream I am in the plantation Hell on Earth and cannot awaken from this prison dream.
These bars, the violence, all the corrupted rules, all the folks, lords, kings, the hate groups, and the fools there was a time we experienced love, never knowing such hate.
A time we felt laughter and smiled, but now its too late
Behind these plantation walls there no jokes so take nothing as fake
Knuckles up all times, never knowing when your own life may be at stake
You are never relaxed nor are you truly sure of what you really feel
The moment you wake your fear again become real
Everyone tries to be the best, not realizing their faults
It’s a goal to be the hardest and strongest with the most venomous assaults
There is nothing but a lot of hurt, hate fallen souls within North America plantation prison system
In here you have no choice in life but to stay strong and face your fears c/o Minister Khalil Shabazz Muhammad
