Prison or Passion is a collection of vulnerable and eloquent poems from R.K. Russell, who has started and played in the NFL since 2015, for the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With bare honesty, walloping punchlines, and endearing flare, Prison or Passion captures the struggles of being a young boy without a father, and the strength that comes from building your own definition of manhood. There is a glimpse into the duality of abandonment and finding one’s self. The book also encompasses grand moments in life: falling in love, healing through transparency, football triumphs, the simple pleasure of waking up next to the one you love. R.K. Russell recaptures the subtle cries of a young boy and the creation into the man that would have protected him, ensuring that his words will become your personal creed—and will call you to protect the young and innocent.
