Favorite Quote:
beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I rather be hurt with the truth then a lie
education is the key to sucess
nonviolence is a weapon of the strong

love all trust a few do wrong to none

your eyes are the windows of your soul

trust can be destroyed faster then it can be built

education is the most important aspect of society

keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground

When people ask me where I'm from I say

Iam from books
from clorax bleach and tide detergent
Iam from black brick buildings
and walls that been tag by different gangs
Iam from the rose bush
the old oak tree
whoes long gone limbs I remeber
as if they were my own
I'm from brown eyes and dark skin
from family and friends
I'm from bitting my nails and playing piano
and from reading untill my eyes shut
I'm from if it's not your's don't touch it
and don't make me tell mommy
and never would have made it by marvin sapp
I'm from taking pictures on easter sundays
I'm from southwest philadelphia and
bake macoroni and sweet potateo pies
from my mom's birthdays
how me and my sisters cooked her breakfast
snap shots and good memories under my
floor boards in my room
That's where I'm from
