I apologize to my family and friends to whom
I make amends, I let them down in the
past. I promise to never do it again.

I apologize to my community whom also suffered
From my actions, the harm I inflicted I
received no satisfaction.

I promise to do better brighter days from my
changed ways, I promise to heal the wounds
from the scars I have made.

See people can change for the better I know,
I’m living proof, now that my freedom’s
approaching, I pledge to give back through the

The one whom has no father, the one has
no brother, I grew up with neither.  I’ll
help all mothers.

Mentoring to the children that helps building
communities, I will show them how to dream
and that there is life beyond negativity.

Most important, I’ll tell them people died for us
To have better choices, and if they
stand for something good the whole world would hear
their voices.
