Who Am I?

I am a young black man who is on a very adventurous journey. My journey has brought me from the very depths of hell up to the very pinnacle of heaven. These various stops occurred at being, misunderstood, and determined. I never let myself go on a downward path for too long that I could not recover from. I had fought my way back on track to the point where I should've been from the beginning. All I can say now is, Who Am I?

Growing up in my house was like any other household; however, that all came to an abrupt end when my sister was born. I had no clue why that was until years later when I found out it was caused by my dad doing drugs. After that, my father became very abusive to everyone, he would threaten our lives if we did not do what he said. For example, one night, he and my mother were arguing, and she decided to leave, but he didn't like that since he was used to being in control. So he had called me to bring him my brother Aiden, once did he violently snatched him out of my hand by his ankle and held him over the balcony to make my mother come back in. I felt like this was a nightmare that would never end.

Around this time, our family had one of its biggest griefs when we lost our little brother Alex to SIDs. This was a hard pill to swallow since I really had no clue what death was. Even during this period, my mother and father found a way to still argue and fight. On one fortunate night, depending on how you look at it, my dad was arrested on sight because he choked my mom with an extension cord. Since he got arrested and is out of the house, my mom actually got time to breathe without being scared. I'm very fortunate that she was on the phone with my aunt that night because if she wasn't, she probably would've been dead right now.

About 2 years go by, and I still haven't coped with the passing of Alex I started to act bad and hang out with the wrong crowd to get rid of the pain I was feeling. The feeling of abandonment, the feeling of not being wanted, and the feeling of being unloved. When I was in middle school, I was probably headed for the graveyard or prison on how bad I was. I was stealing credit ca...
