The eyes of Stanley Tookie Williams

November 2, 2015 11:42 am The eyes of Stanley Tookie Williams What I visualized is a man A man that committed crimes Stanley Tookie Williams was the name His tragic game in the fallen streets was being a gang banger a Crip leader when he is the one that was responsible and the creator of the Crips. Stanley’s life became a deep dark sadness struggle his father was murder and his mama couldn’t take care of him anymore. Stanley witness everything negative in the poverty of the streets. Stanley created an organization called the Crips to protect the fallen streets everything went so wrong. His life was on the line , Stanley became a heartless killer he killed lots of innocent victims and got caught with the case of murder. When Stanley was put on death row his heart realized that he made lots of mistakes when he was in prison . Stanley seek redemption by reading a lot and writing a lot in his cell and making peace with other gangs. He knew that when he was caught for murder his life was completely over so he called on the gang bangers in the ghetto and sent a message to them by saying that he’s responsible and what he wanted for them is to stop killing each other ,because it’s not worth it at all. Killing somebody isn’t the way as a man you always have to think and know logically when you do those things. Increasing the peace is always the answer , decreasing the peace isn’t the way , but just plain ignorant not only he called upon the gangs , but he spoke to the kids by saying in prison about don’t be involved with the gang lifestyle , because it won’t help your future , but prison or death. Education is always the key of success and passion. The gang lifestyle is a dark journey of lost touch of good reality and happiness. So promise me that you will always be positive and be above the gang lifestyle. Stanley was a change man when he was in prison, but did he make mistakes indeed he did. Stanley wanted to redeem his flaws mistakes when he was in prison. He didn’t want to die as a monster of a Crip leader. He didn’t want to be remembered as that. Stanley wanted to die as a turned peaceful former gangbanger person by writing a children’s book as his legacy and ending the Bloods and Crips killing spree. Stanley wasn’t just a killer, Stanley was a kindhearted man deep down inside. Stanley was a zero in the beginning Stanley was a hero in the end Stanley was strong Stanley did wrong Stanley ended the Crips and Bloods madness He was scared He did cared He did cold blooded things He became bold He was peaceful in the end He felt sorrow Stanley never saw tomorrow again when he died. It’s never too late to change your lost broken heart. We always have a choice in the world to turn it around into positivity always increase the peace of yourself and most of all your mind.
