Bloggers Photo
   My name is Michael Jordan but I'm not that Mike. I was born in Bakersfield, California and raised just outside of Shafter, Calif. in a place called Smith Corner. My father left before I can remember and my mother drown before my eyes at the age of 4 so my Grandparents raised me with the help of my Uncle Joe.
   By the time I started High School I was hooked on drugs and they pretty much consumed my life until the age of 41. It was at that age during one of my many trips to Prison that I broke down and prayed to the God I had been so angry at since my Mothers death. When I had finished my prayer I got up and penned my first poem. My life would never be the same.
   I now live in a small Northern California town called Willows with my Wife Antoinette and our Daughter Michaela. By the grace of God I have 5 years clean and sober and I no longer Cook Meth to support myself. During the last 5 years I have devoted myself to try and warn others of the pains involved with the life I once lived. i curently have 4 books published and number 5 should be released soon, These books are

The Heart of an Addict
The Soul of Desire
The Other Side of Reality
In His Name - By His Grace
Untwisted - Pure Poetry - To soon be released

These books are available on LuLu.Com - Amazon & Barns & Noble. I should add that I use the proceeds from these books to place them in juvinile halls, jails, re-habs etc.
   This site is like a second home to me & its members are like my extended family, thank You and God Bless, MJ
