Struggle - Poem by Tony Avila

I feel that the world moves at a fast pace
I got nowhere to go
I loose myself control
In the passion of money some friends go
The real ones stay
I praise god for letting me stay
I don't know where I would be if I had no self conscience
I feel that I am dead
Yet I still breath
Feel so uncomfortable when i'm not able to speak
Read books to get the daily knowledge
I'm crowded in my thoughts
On my worst days i'm the best
I was once shot at
Good thing I had a vest
My life that I live has so much stress
When i'm gone
Remember these lyrics
Reflect on these traits
