I interviewed T.O. back in the summer of 2017. He’d just gotten out of prison, where he’s spent the majority of his adult life, and he was trying to figure out what to do next. After we met, he found employment and he enrolled at the Community College of Vermont. Things were going well. But what does it feel like to start a brand new life? It’s hard. And it’s complicated.

What’s life w embracing trials and TRIBULATIONS without…
Like…ppls ignorance… judgements…n gossiping…
Without patience.. there is no
I can’t reach my goals(10 folds)..
Until I reflect or resurrect..”my new from my old!!”
Looking back only seems
I find myself on da WRONG tracks..
Blinded by what..
I COULDN’T KEEP INTACT!!!
I initiate All I make…
Bcause it’s a fact…
“ONLY WEAKLINGS BREAK!!!”
So with each reprimand…
Im grow into thicker skin..
Which brings into existence…
A GREATER MAN!!!
My physical is living proof…
How PATIENCE..is da key
which could ONLY..
2 b a wiser me!!!
How I love thee…
I’m not single..
But damn bitch..
“Would u marry me??”
Y is it so much pain??
Y does it shone lite on my soul..
Regardless 2 my darkest rains???
Y can’t I c past it??
Y won’t it allow me 2 4 get?
Y do I admire it as if..it’s my twin bastard??
How can it tug on my mind??
Y do it give me visions..when I think I’m blind?(what am I??)
Y do I continue to bust thru shittyations?
Y does it give me strength..n all I’m facing?
Beauty b the name!!!
Victorious n all life’s Lane’s..
But 1 thing…will always remain..
Dis motherfucka… won’t Eva get tired of GAIN..
It will make a sane person turn..INsane.
It’ll also mend a 💓..dats been crushed & broken..ova n OVA again…
It’s ONLY 1 rule 2 dis game..
Which is Neva/EVA rush…
Or u will find yaself in da repetitive position…!!!!!!!
It’s EZ..2 have friends..
When ur tricking..or spending dividends!!
It’s EZ…2 smile@ life..
When it’s breezy, smooth or nyce!!
It’s EZ…2 have sights..
When Ur tunneled visioned..
Thru what U swore defined..

When U don’t reflect on da issues..
Or da shit dat made u!!
So…if U ask me..
