If I Knew Then…


If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn’t have been involved in a life of crime. The fast money I made when I was a teen wound up being very, very slow money at the end, because the wages you make in jail are slave wages.   And the time that you are locked up is a waste of time, even though you can read and learn more. You can spend that time on the street with your family and friends learning or doing something else. A lot of people gave me good advice but some of it I didn’t listen to. A lot of people gave me bad advice and I learned from all my mistakes along the way. I can’t really say that I would have done everything different because a lot of my mistakes I’ve learned lessons from, and those lessons helped save my life and gave me knowledge and experience that made me who I am today. A smart person learns from their mistakes, but a wise person learns from others’ mistakes.
