I would work hard for something I like
I would work hard to do right.

I would work hard to pass my class.
I would work hard to
earn a scholarship in class.
The most valuable thing that I've ever known is my bed at home. It was given
to me by my mother one night. I sleep in it every day and night.
I sleep in it snuggled warm and tight. I want to stay in it day and night.
To never get up and see the day Never get up want to stay.
I'm grateful for my life my family
I'm grateful for everything that's cool
I'm grateful for God
I'm grateful that I'm not failing not lazy (all the time)
I'm grateful to be writing this I'm grateful for telling
people what I'm grateful for.
How I see myselfin IO years
I see myself in 10 years
still in college studying psychology because I plan on being a psychologist. I'd probably have a girlfriend that I get
serious with, I'd balance
my girl and my school work.
I wouldn't slip and drop in school. I wouldn't slow down in life. I'd be the perfect
man in life. I'd have the perfect wife and by the
age of 30 or 33 I'd try to
have kids. I'd live down
south, South Carolina or North, or Maryland. I live by my family
I'd have a van, a car and
my house would be big
I will achieve all of this
I will. My grade point
average will be 87 and rising.
But all I have to do is
cut down on the talking.
I would want to rule the world and everything in it. Sky's the limit. I would have everything I'd want. People wouldn't step to me, because they would respect me.
I'd control destinies.
People would beg to me.
I'd go to any college and crazy knowledge. I'd pass any class and at night.
I'd ride a bike through the streets because there would be no danger because I'd be the Ranger.
I'd devour the danger.
People wouldn't look to me as a stranger. I wouldn't have any danger.
It would all happen if I ruled the world.
