Life rarely goes as planned. If it did, I would have have been the business man I intended to become when I first registered for college, or I would have became the police officer I desired to be, two years after I dropped out of college. I took four years of self defense classes, preparing myself for the role of becoming a police officer. I wanted to make a difference in my community; cleanse the streets from any predators, criminals, or freaks with bad intentions.
Ironically, I was the one that ended up on the other side of the law, pleading my case to the judge, explaining to them (yes it happened more than once) that I’m really not a bad person and that I actually am working to become a police officer. After multiple arrests, serving time in three different county jails (some more than once), and four months in rehab, not to mention all this before I even turned twenty four, I have finally straightened out my life.
Some may say I wasted what have could have been the best years of my youth. I say those are the years that have made me the tough but humble man I am today. Experiences like these bring exposure and a new perspective to life one doesn’t appreciate or realize until they have to endure so much challenges and adversities. With heartbreaks and suffering comes pain, and with pain comes what I like to call a fruitful prospect; which if you squeeze and strain hard enough, you might be able to come up with a “juicy” story or two.
The product of my experiences and spiritual development is well reflected in my writing. I would like to invite you all to join me on the journeys my writing will take you. There are many stories to come and look out for my first novel, “Bluebay Haven”, which is in the process of being written.
