Dear Who This May Concern

 

My parents are criminal from the 1930’s I a killer, I am a robber; I am Jacob Griffin nicknamed “Get Away Jake”. It started when I was young I was brought up in a world of abandonment my mother and father left me with my grandmother when I was 4 she say’s they were sum big time Duo criminals. She says they were very good but they got caught and killed by a group of people, I have seen papers written about them some of their amazing get a ways and how they escaped from prison and helped other people escape millions of times. I want to be just like them because in their own way they were famous my grandma tells me that nobody knows that they are my parents so I have a chance to be something positive in life and I thought about that but I don’t like being good something in my body just wont allow me to be good for a long period of time. For example when I was in elementary I wasn’t like I am now till the 3rd grade I started having the feeling that I shod start letting people know who I really am so I got in a lot of fights, stole from my teachers purse, and would leave in the middle of the school day. I don’t know why I started doing the stuff that I do It just came out of nowhere. I know it hurt my grandma that I am like this but you cant change the real me like I don’t know how to explain it I get a pleasure from doing the wrong thing it makes me feel alive and like I have a purpose in life, and my grandma gives me a lot of attention from it.

 

I’m now heading to Texas to relocate and to make a new name for myself I have a friend down there that will help me till I get on my feet I’m going to try and change my ways but I doubt that’s going to happen so it might be a couple months or two before I get back in to the prison. I found my birth certificate and turns out that most of my family were famous criminals and I think that’s why I act the way I do. Can you believe this?  My mom and dad were famous criminals 2 my mom name was Bonnie and my fathers name was Clyde apparently they were big time criminals they go away with a lot of murders and they escaped from jail many times criminal master mines. I wish I was around them or at least can remember a time when I was with them I really think I would have made them happy because of the person that I am today.

 

There is this guy in Texas named “ Baby Face “ I don’t know why they call him that but he is the person that I am going to stay with when I get down to Texas, he is a criminal to he said that he knew my mother an father I’m going to be doing some jobs with him so expect my next letter to contain some money. I just want to pay you back for all the times that you were there for me and bailed me out of prison and got my clothes shoes and food. I know its not honest money but money is money right. Anything to pay the bills but don’t worry about me I’m going to be fine. Ill be able to make it on my own once I get my feet under me.

Dhat Hooper Jt's insight:

These are poems that Bonnie wrote about how she was feeling when she was lonely in the jail house. She said she had alot of free time because she didnt leave the cell alot so she just felt lonely and started writing poems.
