In west Philadelphia, born and raised, the playground is where I spent most of my days.
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing (all cool)
Shooting some b-ball outside of the school;
when a couple of kids, who were up to no good,
started making trouble in MY neighborhood.

Solution aren’t supposed to hurt. They’re supposed to fix things, and why fix something that isn’t broken? Nothing was ever broken. Everything was going perfectly.Okay, that’s not true. It was a bumpy road, like driving on the back roads with a bicycle. Some things went well, but in the end, you’d have to fall once or twice to make it to the end. It’s inevit… [more]
I tried to kill myselfExactly one year ago yesterday, which happened to be my 16th Birthday, I tried to kill myself. I was going through a **** time in life, and, after one year, still am.
