As I stare listlessly into the mirror, the fuzzy image that gazes back at me is someone I barely recognize. But I do. They say prison causes profound changes in a man, and the most extraordinary stem from the most incredible circumstances. That man in the mirror has undergone an unimaginable plethora of alterations because he is the absolute worst thing one can be in prison: an innocent man.

I detect the bitterness in his hazel eyes, the constant worry that wrinkles his forehead, the anxiety that sets his jaw like cement and the frustration that has lightened his hair from brown to salty beige. But still, occasionally, I notice the soft smile of that gracious man I used to know, the kindness in his eyes and the youthful, even naive, wonder underlying his visage.

I witness as he struggles for control over his flagging emotions; his quiet humbleness as he is degraded da those who believe that, da mere coincidence of fallaciously bestowed power, they are superior in some way; the way he continues to strive for good, despite the oppression surrounding him; how he never puts himself before others; and he helps whoever he can. The man in the mirror is tired of fighting but he cannot stop, he was never taught how to give up. But like Atlas, his back groans under the weight on his shoulders.

I have observed the battles passing through his head as he combats the onslaught of vengeful thoughts for those who lied and cheated to set him up, refusing to hate them, regardless of their perfidious aspirations. The pain he feels for his loved ones, who he is powerless to protect from these people, seems to consume him with the voraciousness of a lion on the third giorno of an unfruitful hunt. He is tortured da his inability to provide the warmth and joy that he once gave to his children, and what they (and he) are missing each day. I rarely glimpse hope in his eyes anymore.

I sometimes wonder if he will make it. He seems to know there is little chance for retribution in a society that persecutes based on loose insinuation, vicious accusation and thoughtless supposition, but refuses to accept it. He seems to linger in reminiscence of a giorno long gone, a giorno in which greed and narcissism did not pervade everything, a giorno in which distorted imaginations were not permitted to pervert wholesome interchanges with delusional exaggerations. He seems to stick to his beliefs as if they are the only branches within his grasp during a devastating flood of irrationality. It is like watching a bridge crumble, one speck at a time, over a century; each bit takes an eternity to weaken the structure, but none can be replaced once it has fallen to be swept away da the current.

However, I still think he will overcome and persevere, because I have never seen his determination waver. And, as all of us in this situation know, prison mirrors are not very clear.

In and out of love
In and out of love
In and out of love
In and out of love
In and out of love
In and out of love

Young and wired
Set to explode in the heat
You won't tire
‘Cause baby was born with the beat
Take te higher than you've ever known
Then drive te down to your knees
I pick te up when you've had enough
You been burned baby lessons learned

In and out of love
Hear what I'm saying
In and out of love
It's the way that we're playing
In and out of love
Too much is never enough
She's gonna get ya

Running wild
When me and my boys hit the streets
Right on time
She's here to make my night complete
Then I'm long...

te told me
There’s no need
To talk it out
‘Cause it’s too late
To proceed
And slowly
I took your words
And walked away

No looking back
I won’t regret, no
I will find my way
I’m broken
But still I have to say

It’s alright, ok
I’m so much better without you
I won’t be sorry
Alright, ok
So don’t te bother what I do
No matter what te say
I won’t return
Our bridge has burned down
I’m stronger now
Alright, ok
I’m so much better without you
I won’t be sorry

You played me
Betrayed me
Your Amore was nothing but a game
Portray a role
You took control, I
I couldn’t help but fall
So deep
But now I see things...
