My Confinement Does Not Define Me
For the past few years of my life I've been incarcerated because I lost focus on who I wanted to become in life. Caught up in a carefree lifestyle I began to chase fast money and material possessions. Moving fast and under the influence of that lifestyle my adrenaline rush ultimately caused me to crash. Paradoxically my pain and suffering has been bittersweet. My downfall was indeed a disappointment to those who had described me as a "determined man", however within the confines of prison I have now become a " promising man" because success is still within my reach.
Instead of feeling sorry for myself I've used this time of solitude to change the man in the mirror. That introspection has given me direction in life and now I'm equipped with a college education. While my academic education is certainly worthy of praise, the best education that I've acquired is "know thyself", for if we are never confused about who we are, the trials in life will never tear us apart.
Now, more than ever I know who I am and I'm determined to stay away from all things which are not conducive to my growth and success. As I prepare to re-enter society I'm reaching out hoping to meet people, friends who will be pillars of support and encourage all that is good in me. If you are able to extend a hand, I encourage you to write a letter or send an e-mail with words of encouragement to uplift the man that I am.
