BURIED TREASURE

BURIED TREASURE Impressionable adolescents I was amongst the crows, depending on a present mother that was an absent minded nurturer with one talent, to be inebriated 24/7. Raised with no parental guidance so there I roam, the innocence of a child lost but found my position out of place which is idolizing what will become my future, another statistic. Not to say a righteous path wasn’t tangible, I just couldn’t see past my circumstances. Blind to that fact, new reality of a criminals paradise is this recurring cycle. Prison, death, hopelessness, loneliness, the loss of loved ones. As a man, my decisions now are mature, wise, considerate by way of life’s experiences because of that I will never disappoint myself or my family again. I am today what a woman would admire, people could learn from, and a mother could be proud of because I’ve been through the slums of life and I’m still standing, able to tell my story. I only consider myself a survivor because I wasn’t snatched from this planet before my time like my mother and friends, but true survivors are my selfless Aunt and beautiful, strong-willed 10 year old niece who is battling cancer. Wonder Woman doesn’t have anything on her. That’s my strength, my will to do better, what humbles me. I will always be better than who I was because my niece loves who I am and that’s priceless. Take advantage of life because the only get one.
