A WAY OUT OF NO WAY……

Every year I got financial aid for college. Every year they paid for room and board, meals and classes. Every year I was told I had to buy my own books. Every year I would stand outside the bookstore and watch others buy books,bags some even walked out with tv’s ( that was a college in the hood). Nevertheless every year the schools would tell me to pass without books. I spent almost twelve years in six different cities going to almost 12 different colleges with no books. Yet my grades were always above C so I could get my pell grant. I worked full time to pay off my tuition. I would walk into a class and just watch, listen, and profile the teacher. Others would be playing x and o games in their books. While I sat there with a empty desk dressed ready for work. I would take a test on friday and head to work. On monday the teacher would say great job you the only one in the class who got an A. I did all that with a hangover every week. See I JUMPED THRU DARKNES and went to the local library and found old editions of the textbooks to study from. I may have been poor but far from dumb. I have never had a rich uncle or even a well off auntie. But I have, do, and will always JUMP THRU DARKNESS to take care me. Anyway don’t say it ain’t no way. Just say which way will you use to solve your problems today……JTD

By Jumping Thru Darkness Books for Sobriety.

I am a recovering alcoholic that used my own methods to become 7+ years sober. My books are stories and poems as well as spoken word that sums up my journey. Along with my own sobriety program for all. JUMPING THRU DARKNESS may can help when nothing else seems to work.
