Well my name is Jonathan Simmons, I love to write poetry and short stories about my journey through life and the many things I go through or that goes through my mind. I am a recovering self mutilator and I love to educate others just about my struggles with self identity and owning who I am as a person. I also want to be a social worker or rehabilitate people who have dealt with similar things that I have in life and help guide them in the right direction. Otherwise I'm 29 and was born and raised in Milwaukee. Life has given me a second chance to better myself here in prison and I regret what I did to get here but I don't regret who I am and how I have managed to overcome things I have faced thus far.
