I Am

I am seventeen on a mission I wonder why things happen the way they do I hear too much negativity I see myself in the future I want to be happy I am not to be underestimated I pretend to be on top of the world I feel confused I touch the edge of insanity I worry about too much I cry more than you think I am not as tough as I seem I understand what I need to do I say what needs to be said I dream of being number one I try to be the best I hope my life will influence someone I am Antron Harper
