Fallen Soldiers in the Belly of the Beast (R.I.P.)

Hello, my name is Jerome Walker but friends call me DJ. I want to talk about what’s on my mind.

I am saddened because I had lost a soldier in the belly of the beast. Saturday a guy I knew who was locked up died from cancer. His name was Pauly.

This man had done approximately 30 years in the belly of the beast. Here’s the sad part. He only had 2 years left.

When Covid hit, he was diagnosed with cancer. During this time, Covid had hit the prison hard. Approximately 146 prisoners had died from this deadly virus.

With 2 years left on his sentence, Pauly petitioned the courts and the Governor for a pardon, because he knew he was on borrowed time.

Sadly, they denied his request.

What is a man to do? He done everything to get out, but they didn’t care to listen to his plea or cared if he lived or died.

On 9-11-21 they pulled the plug on my friend and he passed away.

All I could do was put my head down and cried silently as he never got the chance to walk out of these doors into his family arms. 2 years left, and he couldn’t get an early release to be with his family before he passed away.

30 years of hard time, just to die 2 years before your release day.

Rest in power my friend. I miss you. I want to send my condolences to his family. I also want to say rest in peace to Big & Tree who died at Kinross. R.I.P. to Sincere, I lost my breath when u died. R.I.P. to Geeder-El, hustle man. R.I.P. to all the fallen soldiers that had lost their lives in the belly of the beast.

If you reading this, and u lost a love one in prison, Rest in Peace to them as well.

Gone but will never be forgotten.

Sincerely, Jerome BKA DJ the visionary.
