Making Up for Lost Time
As someone who has spent 20-plus years behind bars, I have lost my prime years. I have lost count of all the things and moments I wish I could experience. Oh, how I wish I could go back in time to do things over. But then, I wouldn't be who I am today. I'm not sure I like that.
The reality is that I don't know who or what I would have become had I not been in prison. That's something I will never find out. But the person I am today, I am proud to be alive.
There is not make up for lost time. The time is now. We have to make the best of it.
