YABC means a future, an education, and a life to me. Mr. Smallhorne once told me, every time he is asked for change on the subway he asks people whether they have completed their education or gotten their GED; too often, the answer was no. I [...]

Point of No Return
April 12, 2009
I’m at the point of no return in my life
My life goes round and round
And doesn’t seem to stop at any point
Am I to force a smile upon my face?
As if you didn’t rip my heart out my chest
Or walked around with an angle of depression
When [...]

Can’t Deny I Am
January 17, 2008
It’s that pen in my hand
My pencil, my tongue
It’s all the same I find
The words come as if not from myself
As if there were words hidden in the ink itself
As if that muscle in my mouth is not flesh
But rather a collection of words
Tightly [...]

Thanksgiving This Year
December 17, 2008
This thanksgiving I found myself in between feeling excited and miserable. The thought of me not being able to really be with my family like I used to be before I had my daughter was painful. There were periods where I thought everything was just messing [...]

Like a Blind Man
April 12, 2009
My life is like a blind man trying to find his way in a new city
Confused and not sure where to go
Nice and innocent outside but lonely and dark inside
Wrecked mentally because of previous life
People who try to give me advice could be fake [...]

Two Lives
April 11, 2008
We were 350 miles away from home and it was getting dark. Did we make the right choice? Was our love worth it? Were things really that bad back home? Krystal and I were nervous, we had never been on our own. Our love made our decisions [...]

My Shape of Life
June 6, 2009
My shape of life would be a circle. Just because my life is smooth and not too stressful to the point that I can’t handle the situation. It’s a circle because my life just goes on. It’s like a routine; I do the same [...]

Little Boy Lost
March 8, 2009

and what has he lost
is it the ball, is it love
is it the time that he grows, knows and becomes
the man that we want him to be, one who could trust
the love that he had for this ball was a lust

Touch Up North
December 10, 2008
Pushing up off the floor
To get stronger
You can get cut for sayin’ what’s poppin’
When an inmate asks you what’s crackin’
They send you up to the mountains
To get a broke back
You ain’t hol it if you wrote me
And I didn’t write back
Shoot-out for hours
Razor to razor
he dont care [...]

My Thoughts
March 2, 2009
My thoughts are my dreams
Dreams are imagination
Not life
My thoughts are my dreams
But life is not a mirage
Life is a rubic’s cube
You’ll never know what side you’re on
