Project 50/50 :: Day 33 – Missing Person

You may know the poet, writer, author, dj, engineer, Alpha, former-athlete. But do you know the man, himself? Perhaps not…because the man himself barely knew himself.

Scarred, physically in 1992 through surgery Scarred, emotionally in 2007 and again in 2009 through deception Shattered but still not broken.  My scars are a life line; without them I would not be here.
