Favorite Quote:
"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none." William Shakespeare

Power holds people high.
It also breaks people down.
Those who start with nothing rise to the top and overcome difficulties.
Some rise, some don’t.
“…who had risen so suddenly from great poverty and misfortune to be one of the lords of the clan.”
He holds power and respect.
Dignity and pride.
He is Okonkwo.

This is just a poem I had to write for class about the book Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe about the protaginist Okonkwo.
