I am a 53 year old man who has been a prisoner at Angola State Prison since I was 18 years old. I am serving a life term without parole for a murder of my 17 year old neighbor. I am guilty; I will never see the outside again. The outside world I knew is long-gone and the only world I have known as an adult is the prison community. In the almost 35 years I have spent here, I have seen many things. This is a true story about one small part of prison life. Prison is not like an HBO TV series. Prison is tough, violent, and a world unto itself. You do NOT want to end up here.
