My Life is not as easy as it looks. I guess everything that glitters isn’t gold. I was raised by a single Mother that is very sick. So growing up she didn’t have a job. She was unemployed living off of a social security check. Sometimes it was hard not having the latest name brand thing. But life isn’t always about material things. But my mother did what she could. She couldn’t make a rabbit jump out a hat. But she did what she could. Coming out of my eight grade school year I met a wonderful young women name Ciara Celestine. Which is my girlfriend, my heart holder, my back bone, my everything, my life got easier when she came in it. Because I had someone I could relate to. Someone I could fall back on. As I turned sixteen I got a job. And ever since then I’ve been working trying to make ends meet. It gets hard sometimes but in order to have nice things you have to work for it but it’s not all that easy being a senior I high school and working. But I just keep my head high like my nose bleeding. Because I came to far just to give up now. I have to make my mother proud. I’m the baby of nine kids. And she still is having a hard time recovering from hurricane Ike. It’s not always just easy to start over. But you can’t cry over spilled milk. All I can do is graduate. And make my family proud because even though I’m struggling. I can make the struggle look good I smile to hide my pain. Some people couldn’t walk a mile in my shoes I bet you didn’t know all these things about me next time don’t judge a book by its cover.
