Overview

In this book you will experience real emotions that I dealt with in my life. I felt different like I didn’t belong, poetry was the only way I could express myself. Some of the poems may seem like rap or hip-hop, which was my way of fitting in. I also fell victim to the world of addiction for me that is how I dealt with my emotions. As a member of a 12 step fellowship I realized that I didn’t want to feel. Drugs and Alcohol made me feel alive, but that feeling would only last so long. After a while I felt misery, pain, and unhappiness. Until one day God granted me the gift of desperation. From that day on I’ve been sober, but like a good addict those feelings come back. That’s why I consider myself “Still in The Grips”.
