I am very open minded stubbornly set in my ways. I am what society defines as a low class convicted felon who is going nowhere in life. Even my family seems to believe this misconception. I have made more mistakes in my 18 years than I will even bother trying to account for. I take responsibilty for my mistakes, but I do not let them define me as a failure. On september 11th, 2008 I spent 24 hours bringing my daughter in to this world. Her name is Adara Star and she is the reason I get up in the morning. Life is what you make of it, and I have let go of almost all of the things I thought made me who I was. My poems reflect my life expereinces, and they arnt the best but their mine.
