My mother deceased when I was seven, 
I started seeing little crazy things after age eleven. 
Months or weeks later after that my grandmother deceased too, 
At my age, to just cry was all I could do. 
Later in life I moved with my aunt that was drinking badly, 
She locked my brother and me outside when she was drinking badly. 
So my other aunt got custody of us and I didn't know she was doing cocaine, 
Until us both started going through abuse of pain. 
When I told him, my sister that was already there, and I got adopted, 
That was the only way that I could stop it. 
Age fifteen was when I got adopted and age eighteen was when they kicked me out, 
Because I filed a police report that he was molesting two of the boys when I found out. 
I was on the streets homeless for a week, 
But I kept climbing to success like I was determined to reach a mountain peak. 
Then my cousin came and got me and helped me move in with my aunt, 
Later she kicked me out then it seemed like for survival, I had to hunt. 
So I moved in with my father but his sister didn't want me there, 
I started to feel like, for me, my family didn't care. 
I slept with neighbors and spent two more separate nights outside in the cold, 
When I came to Great Onyx Job Corps I realized that success last a lifetime and never gets old. 
Now I'm here at Great Onyx Job Corps because God has blessed me with a better opportunity, 
And I'm thanking Great Onyx and their community.
