I Will Survive and I Will Deliver

Will I ever amount to anything?
My neighborhood breeds criminals, murderers, prostitutes and drug dealers.
I am immune to the sound of gun shots, sirens and screams of pain,
When another young person is gone too soon.
Will I survive to stay alive or 
Will I survive just long enough to die 
Before any hope of a dream is materialized?
I looked into my mind’s eye and 
Determined that I will survive;
I will rise above this mental state
Leave, learn, return and educate;
To end this cycle of 
Life and death 
Where only positive contributions  
Can deliver the rest. 


From my Book:  High School Boys Build A Strong Foundation & Face Your Future Prepared & Courageous
