"I spent 10 years locked up in the penitentiary and just got released in April of this year. When I walked out that door, I didn't know which way to turn. I'd lost everything. And so much had changed on the outside; it was nothing like when I left. It seemed like the whole world had done a 360 and gotten so much worse. When I first got out, I did a lot of walking, a lot of thinking and examining myself. I had been a crackhead and an alcoholic before, but I haven't touched any drugs since my release. I still walk everywhere. I don't want to get into a car with somebody and they have something on them and I don't know about it. We get stopped, it won't matter. I'd be going back to jail and I don't want that. I stay to myself now, do things by myself or with my lady. Sometimes I feel like my life is over; you know how you get sometimes. But I try to keep moving forward and doing the right thing. Deep down inside, I know that without faith, there's no hope."
