Wake Me Up Before I Go

Does being asleep mean that you are napping, resting, or even laying down?


Whether your eyes are closed or not, if you are one who has not applied himself, or made some effort toward change, you have been resting. If you are someone who has been following the cancers of society who have led to a life of destruction, you are napping. And if you are aware of the things that have kept you stagnant and you’ve done nothing to change your situation, then you have officially laid down.

I have been asleep for more than half of my thirty-one years on this earth. And for many years I’ve been a part of destruction and have played a major role in the problem. My resting has caused heartache and pain for the people I love most, my family. The distance that I’ve created among my family has even separated us further than this prison sentence. But through experience I have become alert. Through my experiences I have learned that you get back what you put out. In other words, if you continue to do wrong and surround yourself with negativity this is what you will get in return. Me experiences have awakened me to a bigger cause in life. That cause is change and having a positive impact on society. I have dedicated myself to being a part of the solution, rather than the source of the problem.

Often change is spoken about as uncomfortable. But if you compare that uneasy feeling to the so-called life of street fame, which has led to years in prison, there is only one that makes sense. I would rather be uncomfortable with no worries than to be uncomfortable and have to look over my shoulder. When we approach change it may seem as if more negativity follows, but this is one battle that I am willing to take on.

Thanks to my experiences I am no longer asleep.
