I am having a hard at answering this question because it appears to me that there is little faith and hope that I can redeem myself. The funny thing about redemption is that it often takes someone else to set the stage for it to take place. Meaning there has to be a willingness on the behalf of others to trust you enough to allow you the opportunity to redeem yourself. Almost like a champion boxer, as long as he has the belt he can pick and choose who he wants to fight. So ones chance at a shot at the title depends on his willingness to let you fight him. So nothing else matters without his consent.
I feel like that underdog fighter begging for a shot at the title, at a chance to redeem myself. The one that is often overlooked and never taken serious. Have you ever seen that person? Often when that person gets the chance to show off their skills they leave a heck of an impression.
I guess freedom is like that and society is that ring. I liken it to that in some many aspects. There are a lot of men and women that have been in here training for that big fight and redemption. The fight that no one thinks they can win. The fight of their lives. All odds are against them and all bets are on! These men and women are begging for the chance to show that they can succeed if given the chance. The sad reality is that some of us are never going to get that chance and the never have that opportunity to show the world what we really are made of. We will never get a chance to leave our mark on the world.
Everyone that comes to prison is not bad, even though prison is where they send bad people. I think that the society is starting to realize this, that all people in prison are not bad. There are some fighters in here, waiting to get out and show the world that they are not bad people. They are training for redemption!
I thought that the training that I have been going through for the past 20 years would have made me a good contender for a shot at the title, the world. But, it is obvious that there are still some doubters out there that do not think that I deserve that title shot. That I do not deserve redemption. The only way that I can get out and redeem myself is that they have to let me out and give me a shot at that title. I know that I will leave my mark and a heck of an impression on the world! All I need is that shot at the title!
