You come across our title: Escaping the Pen, and you are intrigued. You flip the book over and discover that this is not some book about a couple of offenders who dug a three-hundred-foot tunnel to freedom, but about two men in prison who dug into themselves and did the hard work of soul searching in order to gain the true meaning of freedom.
On this extraordinary journey, we take readers "under our wing" into prison life from the physical standpoint and then we tie that exact perspective to the mental and emotional prisons that have some of the same and even greater consequential effects.
After making these connections between physical and mental/emotional prisons, we show you how we used our physical circumstances as a tool to gain freedom "within."
It is our hope that, through our pain, you can gain wisdom and lessons that will same you "time" in this life that you can never get back. It is our additional hope that, as we take you on a journey of prison life, we clearly show you that "prison" is more than an institution where "bad" people are sent, but a place where a lot of people send themselves mentally and emotionally. They keys that hold the power to unlock the cages that hold you hostage against your will lie "within." Let us lead the way.
