Advice 4 Life

June 12, 2012
The more life hits, I hit back harder.
The more it pushes, I just go farther.

The more it struggles, I struggle longer.
That’s okay because I’ll get stronger.

School is my friend, it makes me smarter.
It gives me the courage to work harder.

I hang with the geeks, I chill with the nerds.
Those other loudmouths just wanna be heard.

I rise above guns, I tower above drugs.
In fact I’m so smart I surpass all thugs.

Listen to this so you won’t end up a fool.
Avoid negative influences and stay in school

I know a thug with an IQ of 135. He is going to be in the army and become a brain surgeon. Not all thugs are dumb. And he prefers the term gangsta! But nice poem over all.
