I am a 19 years old male. I can paint, draw, write, play guitar, sing, so many valuable talents yet I have no opportunities. I’m a single father, I pay child support. I work part-time, 2 days a week at Subway. I live in a shit small town where everyone is the same. I’ve been on my own since 16. I’ve been homeless, I’ve been to jail. I’m constantly fearing for my freedom all because of a few cannabis charges. All I want in life is to make music and to be with the woman I am in love with. Should that really be so hard? Too bad the love of my life is 211 miles away from me and I cannot afford to pay for a car or insurance. I have nothing but the love I hold for people. Why do I have to see the 1% do nearly nothing to own everything? I support the fall of this government. We do not need to be controlled. Its 2012, let karma be the law of the land. What gives one man the right to tell another man that he is wrong? Is that not playing God? Only god any myself should judge me.
I’M NOT A CRIMINAL. CANNABIS SHOULDN’T RUIN MY FUTURE. ALL I WANT IS TO LOVE AND BE LOVED.
WHY DOES THE CAGED BIRD SING?
BECAUSE HE STILL KNOWS HOW TO FLY.
I am the 99%
