A friend recently asked me how grieving a suicide was different from grieving a non-suicide death. It's a great question... and I am grateful for my dear friends who are willing to openly talk & ask questions about Drey and my grief. I am just 10 months into this pain but so far I've experienced two areas of difference. One you'd expect - one maybe you wouldn't.
After much thought I have decided to publish my tiny book “Journey To A Better Mind”. So as of now it will no longer be free to view. Reason for this is I have decided to get it edited (I have smart friends) and put it on amazon for download for $1. Basically, I really need the money for me to continue living and being able to keep pursuing this dream of mine. I am making one last run at this career path of mine before it just goes back to being a hobby i do here there… This is also the reason I am moving back home.
Other objectives of mine are:
- Finish the new book I have been working on
- Finish my spoken word album “The Struggle” (which i’m realllly excited about)
- Start performing at open mics and maybe even go on tour (yea that would be wicked sweet)
If I get these done and things go well, I will be a happy man. These next few months don’t expect many posts of mine that are not geared towards these goals and my work. This will be my last go at this before I go get one of those full-time lame jobs… Here goes nothing!
Rough copy of a track for the next album "The Struggle". Shout out to my dude William Bolwell A.K.A. Same Type Attack Bonus for letting me use his music

I’ll start by saying what I’ve been up to. Started working at home recently, It’s gives me some extra money but I’ve been preoccupied these last few weeks with other stuff. I have my third album in the works and I have created a site for myself and one for The United Connection (currently under construction). I am moving back to New Bedford,Ma at the end of June, that’s my home city. I am going to hook up with my buddy who has a studio so I can record better quality stuff which is why I haven’t released the third album yet. I am working on getting everything else set for the move as well.
May 29th marks 5 years since my mother died so that’s been on my mind as well. I literally have a whirlwind of emotions running through my head. I’ve insanely down because of it but I’m working through it how I know how and with the support of those that love me. When i move I will be moving alone and focusing back on this blog and the meaning behind my poetry which is to create a better way of life for everyone. That will start with me working on making my city a home that people will want to embrace instead of running away from….
That’s it in a nutshell… sorry for any grammar issues but yea whatever..
