|Contents:||I remember when life changed forever ... --
My thoughts are made from what my eyes have seen --
I don't know if I'm waiting for death or waiting to become alive --
If we must shed our blood on this earth, let it be for the good and protection of our people and not for our own self-destruction --
A big circle going round and round, killing each other slowly but surely --
What life? : life is nice but sometimes to me it's worthless --
All my life I've been taking chances, bad chances --
I want to be rewarded for the way my life has changed --
Memories, fighting against enemies, our foolish dreams, taking our families down, until pain --
If you survive, your purpose will surface --
Will I live to see one more day or should this be my last day? --
I hope that my little boy becomes a good man and has the guts to face the world like his mama did --
Holding my tears ... made me cautious to the emotions that I face every day of my life --
I know that I prematurely made a lot of decisions that will affect my destiny --
I still see chains tied to my hands; as I try to break them, they get tighter on me --
I thank God for still having me alive because if it wasn't for him I would be dead --
Somewhere there is a place waiting for me; somehow I am going to get there --
Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.
