Elements of Me


The fire in my eyes from poverty I despise
I begin to realize my unwilling demise
My will to win is powered by sin
As I overcome pain with a pad and pen
A college-bound kid that will never give up
I am mentally flawless with impenetrable logic
Using incredible phonics to get into college
A brilliant mind but what lies inside it?
In hell I reside, education helps me fight it
