"... I was 19 when I got my felony. Had I known the severity of the decision I made that lead to it, I probably would've thought twice about it. I honestly feel that being incarcerated is worst than death, it's like you're pretty much alive but dead to society. And corporate America has it set up to where you pretty much don't get a second chance.

But I'm still optimistic about the future because it's really my choice regardless of the hurdles I've  self imposed and put in front of myself. I'm up for the challenge. And it kind of brings a smile to my face because the future seems bright, it's as bright as you let it be. You just got to let the sun shine down in you're life..."
