To be a poet is to create and march to one's own beat. To be a poet against the malignant rhythm of this godforsaken prison, is a revolutionary act governed by a love greater than the hate Pete is so often forced to bear. Pete is a poet. He is not beyond a prisoner's burden, but he refuses to allow it to define him. From a broken and bruised place, Pete's poems are butterflies that cannot be confined. This collection of 100 poems is an embodiment of his perseverance and a reflection of our struggle as a species. - Howard Guidry
Pete Russell

Pete Russell

Pete Russell was born on May 2, 1973 and sentenced to death on Feburary 26, 2003 for fatally stabbing a woman. While being on death row he rised above himself and became a yogi, but he also loves to read and write poetry and is currently waiting to be killed by the state of Texas.

Stefan Heikens

Stefan Heikens (Hrsg.)

Stefan Heikens is a German activist against the death penalty. He has made it his mission to give the inmates of death row a voice and does this in addition to his work with letters from soldiers in WWII. In doing so, he makes no distinction between guilt or innocence and allows each inmate to speak for himself, because he lives by the principle: "You can tell the value of a society by how it treats the weakest of its members." There are certainly few people society looks down on more than death row inmates and that's exactly why they should be listened to! Not every story is black and white and we could all love someone who ends up on death row due to adverse circumstances. Stefan Heikens lives and works in Germany.
