18 years ago to damn near the hour, I made a choice that would forever change my life. The next 7 years would be the most painful, eventful and meaningful of my life still to date. Those years I spent in prison. I learned more about life and the humans therein, than any school could ever teach. Because of that, I've survived damn near it all. I ran thru the AIDS and crack epidemics unscathed. I survived gangs and bullet wounds, knives and racism. Most suffering was self inflicted, for there is no victim here. I've been out 11 years and still, the frame I fight. I still face adversity and lies and accusations. And still I push on. Head remaining high. This post is a celebration of me. Of the defense of my own demons. Thru the most recent of nonsense, my page stays public. Innocent people do not hide. Cowards do. Why would I throw away, 2 decades of pain. Suffering. Education. Family. Love. And success for nonsense?! I wouldn't. Too many people rely on me and need me to make, not only decisions, but near perfect ones. So you cowards keeps whispering on forums. Hiding behind keyboards and pointing the finger my way... I'm in no shadows. I'm where I've always been... Winning on you morons.
