My name is Dushaan.
I am from Honolulu, I am 38 and I am doing an 80 year sentence in Texas.
Writing is my refuge. I have just completed three years in segregation where I wrote a book of poems about the life, love and loss. I am a conscious thinker, environmentalist, progressive who loves humans of all hues. If you would like to write me I would love to write you. I have just gotten over Covid 19 and that experience help me to understand how fragile life is and how I have no control of what happens to me in here.
Help me write my words into the sands of life while my feet are still leaving prints on the earth.
