From Behind the Walls
by Frank Garcia
When Frank T. Garcia was a boy, he was taken from
His peaceful country of British Honduras, which is now
Belize, to the mean streets of L.A. It didnt take him
Long to rebel and join the street thugs of East L.A. gang.
His hunger for stripes led him into deeper darkness.
Escaping Forty four years and two life sentences, he
Took a deal for twenty-seven years in the war zone
Known as Folsom Prison. His street knowledge and the
inner-world within a world is now before us in his
poems mainly for the youths of today. As the ending
in one of his poems say:
May God forgive us for the life we take
Could have been our brothers this day.
