I realize that the Bureau of Prisons says that my projected release date is August 17, 2035.  I admit that my heart has been devastated by that possibility, but my spirit has not.  I do not feel that a 262 month sentence is a reasonable amount of time for anyone with a non-violent, ghost substance, conspiracy conviction.  
I plead guilty to 50 grams but was sentenced to over 50 kilos in a court that accepts the word of anyone trying to reduce their sentence; in a court that will not allow you to object to the substance quantity at sentencing without losing your acceptance points.  In my case that would have potentially added 100 months to an already excessive sentence.
I will admit that this prison term has been something I needed.  For too may years I had been lost in the cycle of addiction.  I had lost sight of who I was and who I aspired to be.  I had never dealt with the childhood sexual abuse I had suffered or the traumatic experiences that I had been through.  I just kept running from the pain, choosing to self-medicate rather than heal.  It became easier to be a victim than a failure.  
I have never claimed to be innocent with regard to every aspect of my charge.  It is, however, my vow that the substance quantity attributed to me is outlandish and inaccurate.  I am without fear though because I live by faith.  I believe that it took the weight of this sentence to change the trajectory of my life.  Mainly because I made it a choice.  This could either be punishment or it could be possibility.  And I have used my time well.  Not taking a day for granted.  I have spent over 1800 hours programming and countless hours healing the wounded soul that I had neglected for so many years.  
Regardless of whether I am released tomorrow or August 17, 2035, it is my greatest wish to never stop growing.  I just want to make a difference wherever I may be.  What is my deepest dream and most devout prayer?  To be reunited with my daughter and with a family that loves me in spite of the mistakes I have made and show them that I am no longer the victim of my past but the victor of my future.
