The freshest scent         
Is one of new opportunities        
The chance to grow       
To expand your horizons   
Nothing can stop you now                             
Knowledge is power      
Grab hold of your life     
And become who you are meant to be   
Thousands of worlds before you      
Ready to make you, you    
The power of books      

The strongest stench
Is one of failure
Your potential stunted
You narrowed your world
You held yourself back
Your own weakness
Controlled your life
And made you what you are now
The world crumbling around you
And you don’t know yourself
The power of drugs

The author's comments:

This story was actually influenced by my brother, he ended up going down the path of drugs and while he is slowly recovering his life is very far off track compared to mine.
