Wasted Honor -

Carl R. ToersBijns is the author of the Wasted Honor Trilogy [Wasted Honor I,II and Gorilla Justice] and his newest book From the Womb to the Tomb, the Tony Lester Story, which is a reflection of his life and his experiences as a correctional officer and a correctional administrator retiring with the rank of deputy warden in the New Mexico and Arizona correctional systems.

Carl is considered by many a rogue expert in the field of prison security systems since leaving the profession. Carl has been involved in the design of many pilot programs related to mental health treatment, security threat groups, suicide prevention, and maximum custody operational plans including double bunking max inmates and enhancing security for staff. He invites you to read his books so you can understand and grasp the cultural and political implications and influences of these prisons. He deals with the emotions, the stress and anxiety as well as the realities faced working inside a prison. He deals with the occupational risks while elaborating on the psychological impact of both prison worker and prisoner.

His most recent book, Gorilla Justice, is an un-edited raw fictional version of realistic prison experiences and events through the eyes of an anecdotal translation of the inmate’s plight and suffering while enduring the harsh and toxic prison environment including solitary confinement.

Carl has been interviewed by numerous news stations and newspapers in Phoenix regarding the escape from the Kingman prison and other high profile media cases related to wrongful deaths and suicides inside prisons. His insights have been solicited by the ACLU, Amnesty International, and various other legal firms representing solitary confinement cases in California and Arizona.

He has personally corresponded and written with SHU prisoners to assess the living conditions and how it impacts their long term placement inside these type of units that are similar to those in Arizona Florence Eyman special management unit where Carl was a unit deputy warden for almost two years before his promotion to Deputy Warden of Operations in Safford and Eyman.

The Zest of Water

The Zest of Water

The Lust for Water does not resist temptation

A human’s lust for thirst is never a sin

The feel of water is often soft as it falls out of the sky

As it was never meant to harm you

The strength of water is bound by laws of nature

To give you what you truly desire inside your soul

Because it is true to nature and all its power

It can shift your moods from rapid thinking to a chilling slow

Water always returns back to its true form or shape

It is granting your lust for life, and is endlessly changing

It can find you love, grief or sorrow or joy

For it does not lack the desire to please or disappoint you

The zest of water brings endless passionate desires

It fulfills an endless life of enrichment to soothe your soul

Whether you are letting it go, or bringing it close to you

It is always constantly changing by letting it flow

Water can bring you enrichments of life or cause a sudden death

It does not cling to either without a special purpose

It finds its own level and essence in life as far as we know

By forever and never letting things go without a reason

So do not cling to water for too long as it may drown you

Even though its ecstasy is eternally giving

Like the sun, the heavens and moon above

It permeates all living things around us light or night

And when things eventually die, the water remains

It teaches us reason and purposes under the stars of heaven

It reasons with us that all things that are born shall die

Yet, when it is all said and done, it is never really over

Water is here for us, fulfilling our ego

As it fills our body and soul with vibrations and ripples for living
