Jeremy Brown 1989 (Wyoming)


“I was down and out for so long I didn’t know which way to go. Through the highs and lows it’s time I vow to right my wrongs. I have the determination to strive and succeed. I am a different breed. I have the need for creation and it’s my new occupation.

My friends and I have had conversations about how I have to find a different rotation. My concentration has been set straight. I will not hesitate. It’s finally about time I’ve corrected my situation. The sobriety helps my anxiety and I’m back to experiencing society. My imagination has been connected to a pen and pad.

It’s sad what had to happen but I’ve been injected with inspiration to better my operation. No longer will I be self destructive but rather more productive. One thing I know is I’ve been set free. I will become the best me, that I can guarantee. It’s on to the next chapter. I’m done with it all and alcohol will not be my captor.”

I’m from Casper, Wyoming and I started to write to help myself through alcoholism, depression, anxiety and anger. I found it to be a very healthy outlet to alleviate my emotions and thoughts. Plus it turned into a fun hobby. I couldn’t keep bottling everything up anymore because I felt like I was going to snap. Once I started to write I wanted to write about what I was going through and dealing with in my life in a poetic/lyrical way if you will. I hope my writings help provide people with hope and to let them know they’re not alone when it comes to these issues. I also hope my writings inspire someone else to get sober or write. If I can touch or make a difference in someone’s life I would be extremely humbled and thrilled. more…
