A life that needs changing.



By Jalen  A. c.


I once lived in detroit.

To ohio I came wanting change.

Yet things are still the same.

Day were spent without nourishment .

Mother couldn't land a job without loosing it. 

I had too much stress I needed escape. 

In technonolgy I found my way.

If I couldn't afford it

I would fix the broken.

I lost myself, and days went by.

I learned, and learned. 

But, the biggest lesson of all

past fixing phones and iPod's

past web developing

past general tech support

was what I want to be.

A computer engineer 

I could help the helpless

those cornered can find an escape. 

A place to help to stress.

No longer will they be alone.

Maybe they can find a new home.
