    MY PARENTS WERE NEVER THERE
    LEFT ON MY OWN TO DWELL WAS HARD TO BEAR
    A PRODUCT OF MYSELF N DA STREETS
    I HAD MOTIVATION TO OVERCOME POVERTY
    CARNAL BOOKS N HOOD KNOWLEDGE OF LIFE BECAME ME
    MOST COULDNT WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES ITD HURT YA FEET
    THIRTEEN HUSTLIN IN NY JUST TO EAT
    STILL MANAGED TO GRADUATE HONOR SOCIETY
    HAD NOBODY TO MENTOR ME
    TRY TO REACH OUT TO YOUTH THAT LIVE LIKE I
    MOST NEVER MAKE IT OUT N THEY COMMIT SUICIDE
    OR WORSE THEY BECOME STATISTICS
    IF THERES LOVE IN THE STREETS I MUST OF MISSED IT
    THE POEMS I KICK IS REAL ****
    I FEEL COMPELLED TO EXPRESS IT
    WANNA SHARE MY JOY N PAIN
    WANNA ENJOY DA SUN BUT HAVE STRENGHTH 4 DA RAIN
    LIFE IS WHAT U MAKE OF IT
    ITS GOT WICKED CURVE BALLS
    BUT U GOTTA DODGE EM N STAND NOT FALL
    I SAY THAT TO SAY ALLAH BLESS ALL

    Very nice write. You should pat
    yourself on the back. Alot of our
    youth have and had way more than
    what you speak of and still fall prey.
    You should be proud of yourself.

    No matter how cloudy the day, you still managed to see the sun, and you're to be commended for that. As for the poem itself, great rhythm, rhyme, and positive message.
