We are stories in the end, Make Yours Count


I did not know candy was dangerous

Getting a pack of skittles can get you killed

Or wearing a Hoody while Black

I did not know with out a degree

One cannot be seen

In a generation where one clothes

Define ones social group

I did not know that having the latest trend

Makes You cool

I did not know that a 9-5 will kill one

Not physically but inside your soul

I did know that books are the keys

I did know that "I believe" can change ones life

I did know college is an investment in ones self

I did know that one has to make it

Cause one is not a failure
