I'm so sorry that you had such a rough life. But congradulations on you medals and your sons entry into kindergarten. And Congrads on graduation.

Wow sounds like a rough life, especially having a baby so young, still a baby yourself. It's like the saying- babies having babies. Well you did something right, I'm almost 32 and still don't have my own house. I could suggest one thing with your writing though, proof read. Read it over to make sure you wrote everything correctly and to make sure it makes sense. I know a lot of misspellings are done on purpose to make the writing seem cool, but that style of writing does not compliment poems or serious writing. One thing I can suggest on your kid, don't raise your son thinking he is somebody because he wears Nike's and expensive clothing. In the end it is the man that makes the clothes, not the clothes that make the man. Teach him morals and values so that one day, it is not him who leaves a son or daughter without a father.
