Michael Jordan

From Willows California, Comes one man’s poetic verse. Who was once consumed by drugs, But overturned that curse. And with the grace of God, He lives a clean and sober life. To fulfill his life’s destiny, With Antoinette his wife. He has the heart of an addict, But it’s not a choice of drugs. It’s writing out his heart, In the poetic forms he loves. He’s no longer in a cell, Under the direction of a Warden. He’s free to write his soul, And his name is Michael Jordan. _____________________________ To Michael Jordan a fellow souper, for his supportive comments, his inspiration, and hard work here on the soup and out in society...

    Raul - What can a person say about that - I replaced all the people in my life (Except my wife and kids) with my friends here and this site is like my family - I never dreamed that life could be like this - it's my friends like you who make this possible - Some days I'll feel so down and I come on here and it takes it all away - Raul I thank you so much - I have a long day ahead of me and you have started it off in a wonderful way - God Bless you - YF4L, MJ
