I believe there is a solution to it all
Never will I give up even if I fall
For I see a weak, faint light out of the tunnel
Like, idols and heros and people who got out of trouble
Under the thick coat of fortune and fame
Everybody has a story; never the same
Never stop spreading the word like the rapper, Jay Z
Calm and collected, but brought up poor, you see
Everybody has a story. Share it: it helps. Believe me.
In this poem, I wrote about influence because I genuinely thought that that was the solution to violent crime as I still do now. It doesn't matter if they are famous or not : sometimes a story about someone who is more like you gets to you more. So I believe that sharing your story can help.
