I WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANKS TO THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE THAT HAVE BELIEVED IN ME, AND STOOD BEHIND ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

FOR SOME REASON THEY BELIEVE IN MY AMBITION IN TIMES WHEN I MYSELF WERE READY TO GIVE UP, READY TO JUMP ON A MUCH FASTER TRAIN TO SUCCESS AND A MUCH, MUSH FASTER ROUTE TO THE CEMETARY AND EVEN WORST, TO HELL.

MISS. NADIA CHASE (GIRLFRIEND) , FOR NEVER GIVING UP FAITH IN ME AND ALWAYS PUSHING ME TO DO BETTER, TO REACH MY TRUE POTENTIAL AND FOR SIMPLE STAYING AT MY SIDE IN GOOD AND VERY BAD TIMES.

TO EVERYONE ELSE THAT HAVE MADE THIS BOOK POSSIBLE, WITHOUT THEM THIS BOOK WOULD STILL BE A MERE WISH IN THE VERY FAR DISTANCE.

SANDY ALI (SISTER) , JOEL NILES (BROTHER) , NOEL NILES (BROTHER) JEROME ALI (UNCLE AND FATHER FIGURE IN MY LIFE) , RICARDO FORTUNE, MALIKA SUPERVILLE, GISELLE DE LEON, JANICE JEORGE (FLAT MATES) , KERRY-ANN DAVIS, KRISTEN DE SOUZA, ANDREW BOWEN AND DAVID ALI.

MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE THE CORE OF MY BOOK, THEY HAVE INFLUENCED ME IN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER BUT THEY HAVE ALL BEEN TRUE FRIENDS AND IN THIS WORLD ONE GENUINE FRIEND IS WORTH MORE THAN ANY MATERIAL THING THAT THIS WORLD HAVE TO OFFER, FOR ME TO HAVE THESE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE, I AM BLESSED.

I TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SAY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU



WHAT INSPIRES ME?

Everything and nothing, my friends my enemies, the hottest of days and coldest night, the gentlest of breeze and roughest of winds, the tap dripping the rush of a land slide, the cry of a baby and the silence of death, the happiest of days and loneliest of nights.

The presents of my family and abscence of everyone, rough and gangster like sounds, the gentlest and purest of harmony, the woman in my life that can get under my skin, what inspires me? They is no one thing that motivates me to write, my life ups and down and down alone is inspiration but only pushes the pen so far. Before, I always thought the greatest sounds, greatest invention and great things brought forward by man has already been done or as someone said ‘everything under the sun has already been done’, THIS IS NOT TRUE AND HAVE NEVER BEEN FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

The greatest sounds have not been written as yet, the greatest inventions have not been discovered yet.

If this was so, what purpose is there in living? What purpose is there in striving for greatness IF Everything have already been done. So that’s what inspires me, the idea that there is a possibility that I can be responsible for something that would be considered, as ONE great thing.
