introduction I could never have imagined as an innocent four year old child watching my mama's casket being closed, I could never have imagined as I fought to breathe while they held me under water when they were trying to drown me, I could never have imagined as a struggle to overcome shyness and the fear of performing on stage I could never have imagined. As I hid in the attic while the police beat on my front door, I could never have imagined has I prayed and prayed that I wouldn't wind up in prison, I could never have imagined, as the tears of my life's failure streamed down my face I could never have imagined. See, I couldn't imagine living a successful life. I couldn't imagine turning all the craziness of my life into a positive legacy.
