( A young mans Tale) A long time ago.

A long time ago when i was still a child with a heart full of hope but as i grew older it
was replaced by the dope. As sad as i was a needle i needed to get through the day or end
up defeated. 

Defeated i was for a long time but in end the end i gained back my mind and struck back
against my self for a time i thought i would die i lay on the ground in an emotionless 
My mind empty nothing more then a blank slate.

One day it happened a light seemed to shine My eyes seemed to open for the very first
time. A thirteen year old stood to see his whole life but wasn't afraid to cry out to the
world for the help he needed he yelled to the world and shouted " I will not be Defeated!"
