Subject: All I want is a second chance.

Dear God,

About two years ago I made the biggest mistake of my life. Something that I can only ask you to forgive me for everyday. I was arrested for stealing $240 on a credit card with two past friends of mine, and charged with a felony. I am not a trouble maker and I know what I did was wrong, and I'm not like society thinks I should be, I just made a mistake and will never make that mistake again. I wish that I had my life to do over again, or that maybe I will die tomorrow and be able to start over. I am currently being evicted from my apartment for the third time this year because I don't have money to pay the rent. I have no food left to eat in my apartment and no clean clothes because i can't afford to do laundry I am selling all my furniture to have money to eat. No one seems to want to give me a Job, and although they don't say so but I know it's because of the felony. I have to put it on every application. I have put my application in at over 100 places, and can't find anything. I have tried so hard to turn my life around and it almost seems as though no matter what I do I just can't get ahead. I recently got a job offer in Orlando Florida but I had to turn it down because I'm not allowed to leave the state. I can't get help from social services, and they don't seem to care if I am living in my car. I feel as though I have run out of options. At the time that I was arrested I was working full time and a student at CCC, I was going to school to be a teacher, well I was informed that you can't be a teacher if you have a felony because of laws. So I have since quit school, and lost my job because the store closed. The hardest part is seeing my Moms face everyday knowing how much of a dissappointment I am, even though she doesn't say it, thats how I feel. I did something so stupid and I know I will pay the rest of my life for it. I am so sorry for what I did. I have begged you to give me a second chance, to be able to have a better life. I don't understand why I am being punished for so long. Everybody makes mistakes, I have learned my lesson, but it seems as though it will never get better. I don't know how to fix what I have done I don't know how else to pay for what I did, it's my own fault and everyday I hate myself more. I only wish for a second chance. I just want to be able to get ahead. I want emplyers to see me for me and not whats written in that one little box. I want my Mom and Dad to be proud of me, and my neices to look up to me. I know I deserve to be punished but I don't feel the punishment has been fair. I wish only for a second chance. lord here my prayer.
