Giving Back

Location

I eat, breathe and think school. 

Why? 

Because others may not be able to. 

It is clear that society does not value

education at the level it should.

Young kids on the street

Taking after their older counterparts

Selling anything to make a quick buck.

Drugs? Of course

Sex? You know it!

Their souls to the ones who dont value it? Every day. 

Coming from a town where this happens everyday

It is my duty to put an end to the tumult and horror

Forced into the lives of those too innocent to

know what they're getting into. 

Getting more programs for children that mean something to the community

and adding education and options for todays brilliant youth.

 So I eat, breathe and think school.

To better myself. 

To better others. 

Because what is a community if no one cares?
