My father died when I was 5. It affected me very badly. As I grew I got angry, depressed and withdrawn. At an early age fell into drinking and drugs, got into trouble and along that way, but a teacher got me to write my feelings on paper in the 9th grade. She was my angel. She got me to grab a hold of a talent within. Which was writing. Ever since that time I expended my energy on writing stories, Screenplays, lyrics and poems. Although I fought depression for a long time, I have seen the sunshine in the rain. And have overcome it.
