I Am a Federal Prisoner

Prison Bars 

I am a federal prisoner and incarceration has changed my outlook on many things in many ways during the course of these past six and a half years.

For starters, I outright disagree with my sentence of 100-months for my crime (Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon) even though I willingly admit that I did commit the crime. Even though I voice my opinion, does my view or outlook really matter anymore?

Since I am now a felon, I carry about the same prestige as a cow dressed in a khaki suit.

The little things that I used to take for granted will never again be little after I leave here.

For starters, I will look at my fridge with nothing less than marvel and admiration. The monotony of prison food has rubbed much of the positivity right out of me.
