The power or a smile


Depressed,tired of being called out,wanting to quit

Try balancing a 3.5 GPS while you play sports and trying to "fit in"

Sometimes I want to give up. But my parents taught me better.

My pops born and raised in a small town managed to succeed. 

And I'm over here complaining  why I don't have a iPhone 6 

I think this however I know I'm going to college guaranteed. 

Even if that means I have to lay down bricks.

I wish all the things I had to balance were as light as a letter

But at the end of the day pretending to be happy just shows how strong you are.

Is all in a high school students mind.

The games the tricks the ideas.

No one said it was gonna be easy

Some just never gave up.
