THE KID

Look at the kid. What

did ever do wrong

except to be staring in

the face of adversity???

Only to be in

a place filled with

heavy uncertainty.

The kid looks for

a way out of the

hood for he understands

having an good

education can point him

in the right direction towards

a perfect life.

What do you

see in the kid???

Gaze into his

eyes. There’ll be

days he doesn’t cry

or how he’ll get by.

The kid soon

realizes all is tough

as the rough afternoon

dwindles the kid

keeps his head up.

The kid takes bold

steps nobody hold

his hand. The kid

makes it to the promise

land.

During his tribulations,

during his frustrations,

the kid become weak

he keep on marching forward

and not backward.

Who is the kid???

The kid has perfect

might. He never loses

sight of what life may

bring him.
