    Spent Time For Something I Shouldn't Have.

    Had to pretend like I was still happy to all my fiends and family. I'll never get that time back, but I'll tell you this, they can never lock up your mind.

    I served 4.5 years in prison

    for a crime I committed when I was 19. I was so scared when I arrived and went through processing. You spend all day being poked, prodded and photographed. When you put your uniform on you become property of the D.O.C. Nothing prepares you but you adapt to the routine and soon...
