I called myself “All Day - Carlitos Way” because of the pain I had felt inside every day, missing my brothers all of the time, and because I thought I would be locked up for the rest of my life.  I decided to tell my story through my artwork.

“I am Carlitos from the beginning.

With me came an awful hand I was dealt:

a Mother’s passing after I took my first steps

A Dad’s addiction left us with no parents


To become with no affection or love

How to feel wasn’t an option

Pain was my only friend

Numb to words, the touch I didn’t feel


Now, with no excuse for my wrongs

I won’t apologize with words

I will only show my actions to give you my word

My apology is action

Forgiveness is for you to decide

I’ll carry my cross and burdens

With high hopes you’ll forgive me

I have faith an angel will carry our pain and hurt

to our Lord and then he will judge."
