I was raised all over the southern part of the United States. I was taken away as a child by the C.P.S. Because of sexual abuse in the home.So I spent about half of my childhood in foster homes boys homes youthomes and state schools. I got cought up in gangs and drugs at a real early age too. By the time I turned 18 I already had 4 felony convictions and was headed to prison to serve out a 10 yr sentence. I only served 3 1/2. I'm not proud of my past but feel it has taught me lessons most people only see on T.V. I still battle with my Demons from the past, but feel this too shale pass, I hope who ever reads my poems understands that I wrote them from the Heart and wasnt writing fiction its more of a Biography of my past, I also love to draw I can draw like Boris V. Its something I learned to do as a child to escape my reality....
