What I Keep

Portraits & Statements

I've got these two items that I've had for the past two years. Everything else was stolen. When I came in here this time all I had was the clothes on my back and a blanket. That was it. And I would have lost them if they hadn't been on me.


This watch - one day I was over at Baylor, trying to make some money and was looking through the dumpster and I found the watch and the ring way at the very bottom of the dumpster. That's it. And I been having them ever since and will probably have them from now on. This is a reminder of where I came from. The dumpster.


Now I got some Bling Bling but I'm going to keep them, both of them. My motto was if I didn't make a dollar it didn't make sense for me to do it. Bingo!
