WASTED TIME

The time that I've wasted is my biggest regret, spent in these places I will never forget, just sitting and thinking about the things I've done, the crying, the laughing, the hurt and the fun. How its just me and my hard driven guilt. Behind a wall of emptiness, I allowed to be built. I'm trapped in my body, just wanting to run back to my youth with its laughter and fun. But the chase is over and there's no place to hide, everything is gone, including my pride, with reality suddenly right in my face, I'm scared, alone and stuck in this place. No memories of the past flash through my head and the pain is obvious by the tears that I shed. I ask myself why and where I went wrong, I guess I was weak when I should have been strong. Living for the drugs and the wings I have grown, my feelings were lost, afraid to be shown, as I look at my past, its so easy to see, the fear that I had AFRAID TO BE ME. I'd pretend to be rugged, so fast and so cool, when actually lost, like a blinded fool, I'm getting to old for this tiresome game, of acting real hard with no sense of shame, its time that I change and get on with my life, fulfilling my dreams for a family and wife, what future will hold I really don't know, but the years I have wasted are beginning to show, I just live for the day when I'll get a new start, and the dreams I still hold deep in my heart, I hope I can make it, I at least have to try, because I'm headed towards death and I don't want to die!

What success are you having at your facilities now?

  • Are you using or referring your clients to the 85% of programs that don't work?

  • What are your goals for those your trying to help?

  • What results are you having now?

  • Are your current efforts reducing or reversing crime and criminal behavior or helping people stay off drugs?
  • Or, are you stagnant or getting worse?

  • Would you like to change lives and lower recidivism rates?

  • Would you like the satisfaction of seeing your clients change?

  • Would you like to maximize your time and efforts?


There is no perfect solution as far as curriculum or programs are concerned, and not every one who is exposed to The Minor Adjustments Program will change. 

However, if we can't empower them or motivate them or help give them some sense of direction, then we aren't doing our part, Doing right or wrong is a choice and we want people to know that they control that choice. Even though some people choose to do wrong. ALL THEY REALLY NEED TO DO IS MAKE SOME MINOR ADJUSTMENTS!
