What made me stop?

The fear or turning 30 with no real education.

I nearly died from the stuff I was in, with my injuries I have I find it hard to breathe sometimes, that was one thing realising that I don't wana die, seeing there was another way of life, going back to school to finish my education, seeing what was happening to my homiez, how they lost hope for the future, and then I fell in love which was some crazy stuff &that changed me alot to as the hood was no longer as important to me no more.

I believe you bgCASPER and StateRaised. You know that's real.

For me it was all about coming to my senses. I had been reading boxes and boxes of books from the libraries in SoCal for a couple years and one day I just rolled out of bed with the desire to step out of myself, my opinions/perspectives/beliefs/prejudices, etc.. and take a fresh look at the world around me and my own self. So I started exploring new places and meeting people (all kinds all races all ages) and taking the time to LISTEN instead of thinking I was bad and knew everything. It became apparent to me that I was so caught up in my little world that I was missing out on the BIG world.

So I sauntered up to the local junior college and got my first degree. Didn't have no money left over from my crummy job at the time so I did it on a grant and a loan. Graduated and got a better job. Then did the whole cycle over again twice more. Before I knew it I was a well adjusted successful person with an entirely different set of values, beliefs, and goals. Everything in my life had changed and I say for the better! I continue to grow and now I also give back.

Seeing all my homeboys gettin all messed up on Drugs and gettin shot and dyin, so I said damn I gotta get up out of here so I went to the MArines Corps and got my head on straight. In no way shape or form do I think IM better than my homeboys becuase I got out the gangs and got a career. I still go around the hood and kick it with them, Ya know even though I dONT BANG AND THEY DO there still family and i still got a lot of love for them, I just pray they get there stuff together and stay out that damn system.
