As I start my 20th year, the numbers start to stand out..
228 months consecutive, if you don’t believe it, you better start checking them, never once have I asked for a hand out…
I used to be mad at the world, eventually the anger turned on my self,
It was me that destroyed my life, my actions, mine alone, not learned by anyone else.
I then realized that I was the problem and I needed to fix it but I couldn’t do this alone, I needed some help…
Now as I write my sister and tell her how much I miss her, I realize that I’ve never been alone inside this cell,
No, my family has shared the burden and I’m sure the scars will always remain,
Scars caused by me and my actions, please know that I’m sorry for causing you pain..
Now, as I sit here staring out the window watching the sun set,
I realize that although it may seem never ending, the journey is not over, we’re not done yet…
Thank you for holding me down, without my family I would have crumbled a long time ago..
I just want you to know that I’m not going to let you down, I’m humbled now and im’a stay that way until it’s my time to go..
For my family, Turio, Kayla, Jetta Marie, Sharon, Sean
