As a lost teenager
I lived my teenage years as a big-time drug dealer under the false influence that this is how I must survive. I was totally deceived, I was at one point homeless, eating out of trash cans, addicted to powder cocaine and marijuana. On several occasions I was nearly killed, had a drug overdose, beaten by 10 guys and left for dead, along with being arrested 19 times and sent to prison 3 times.
In prison is where my transformation began.
My first son was born while I was in prison. This is me holding him while incarcerated in a state penitentiary. What an impossible way to father.
