A talented poet With A Passion for healing and fire for justice! lived through drug addiction and homelessness at 16 to tell his story on the radio!

       ENIGMATIC EXISTENCE

aids became a potential crisis at sixteen, drugged himself by anger and bitterness until he became cold at nineteen. 

friendships fell through the cracks in the floor 

and his emptiness became his conscious 

for weeks he drudged  up the energy and for months resented his entity later on having lost himself completely

foundations for change set in motion turbulence of positive vibration

metamorphosis and maturation

beckoned the boy who lost his innocence

now he lives sunrise to sunset,

knowing he’s responsible for what’s left,

he lives precariously, forever wandering a 

path he saw as abysmal and bleak.
