"Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it"


"You will never go far".
"You are wasting your time".
These words cut deeper
Then the sharpest sword
A man has ever known.

They say they only want
The best for my life,
But they laugh at my dream,
The only dream that
I have ever known.

What is "The Real World"?
And how is it so different
From what we as teens
Go through ever day?

I will follow my dream.
I have to,
Because its my only hope
That I will make it through
Another day.

It is all I have...
