This book is a tool to educate and impact both women and men who can learn from their mistakes and allow themselves to look within when it comes to life experiences, relationships and themselves. However, throughout this time of redemption it seems I continue to battle with myself. When a true artist (whether it's a painter, actor, musician, writer) creates a "masterpiece" during the process of their creation they go through a moment of turmoil. I see the good in me, this spirit that wants to break free from all of the destruction and despair that I have endured, and become the man I have always wanted and destined to be. Nevertheless, it seems as though I am stuck in this crossroad of my old behavior and disparaging lifestyle that has and still empowers my day to day life. So much so, I have blocked all positive energy or love from everyone. This struggle is equivalent to "the battle of good and evil." I can't allow this dichotomy to keep me from accomplishing the goals and path set before me. This is my opportunity to make this into a reality. Not a road to perdition but a road to redemption.
