JAIL (Part 3)

I've been locked up for 3 weeks now. I stay out of trouble for the most part.  I'm always respectful to the detention officers.  They're respectful back. I spend my time doing, well, nothing. There's nothing to do in hell. I'm either lying on my bunk thinking, sitting somewhere thinking, or walking laps around the pod thinking. …

Dark Days

I'm lying on our couch downstairs.  I've been there for hours. It's late in the evening and there's a knock at the door.  Next thing I know, my business partner is standing in our living room.  That is not unusual as we are the closest of friends.  My wife and kids are all in there…

Below Rock Bottom

It's December 13, 2015.  I've just woken up freezing cold and laying on top of an old bookcase in my makeshift shelter in a secluded field.  I'm homeless.  I have no money, no phone, and no transportation.  I've lost everything in my life including my beautiful wife and 6 amazing children, my multi-million dollar business, all my income, close and dear friends, and my dream home.
