“You’re too emotional! Get away from emotions and focus on black and white.” – What if each speck of black on the white are lies?
“Those emotions won’t free you.” – Emotions all I have! How can I not be emotional about my whole life?? At 30 years old sentenced 32-50 years in prison for crimes I did not commit. I do not understand!
It took years to absorb that reality. I’ve entered a world where I’m not allowed to feel. It’s an infraction to cry. Each disappointment, every denial….. I feel less and less. I’m numb.
Let me look at this paperwork from an objective approach. There are manifest errors presented, but always ignored. Why do they keep saying I aided and abetted him, whose case was dismissed? He was in jail on unrelated charges at the time of alleged offense. How could this be? They convicted me of acting in collusion with him…. the prosecution knew his case had been dismissed. Yet, the courts not persuaded to grant relief. Is that so???
The numbing sinks to half dead….. Fight or flight in motion. I have to make it out!
The years turn to a decade and there is something I must be missing. Although I did not do what I’m accused of, there must be a greater explanation for this experience. I look within. I AM that I AM. I heard of my grandmother’s GOD. I admired my mother’s GOD. I cultivated relationship with mine. Freedom is near!
Seeking a spiritual understanding gives me new life. My breath becoming full again. Not as shallow while crawling to the Light. The dim flicker getting bright.
FREEDOM…. I’m approaching FREEDOM!!!
