Poems »

I grew up in a trailer park in fairly rough town and saw drugs and many many gangs everyday. I was introduced to drugs death and street life at an early age while blessed/cursed with vivid dreams, many have come to pass. After the suicide of my first girlfriend I became addicted to cocaine and free-base and experimented with many other drugs. I quit those on Sept. 12 2001 (my senior year in high school) and have been clean sense(woot) and found God several years later. Many of my poem are a direct honest account of my past, although there are some poems of mine here that are actually songs I wrote. I can be blunt and honest, so that's all I'm saying here for now. read my poetry and songs and tell me what you think. Be blunt and honest like me :)
