Pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore, trust the physician. Drink from its cup of remedy in silence and tranquility.

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

Because I can!-Me "Life is a choice and death is a decision"-Lil Wayne

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.
