a ray of hope for the ladies of the country,
my rough skin polished and sold,
though some dont deserve the treasures i hold.

requisite twelve years to make it through school and graduate from his alma mater, and I took slightly longer, that doesn't make
me a loser. So what if I took 'the road less traveled by' and added a one-year, scenic detour to my journey--thanks to Algebra,
Physical Science, and well Latin. Did I mention Chemistry? Let's just say I liked Latin but Latin didn't much care for me. Just
because I took thirteen years in all to get out of Melancholy High with a diploma doesn't make me some loser. Being nothing at
all, now THAT would make me a loser

have a rat's chance of knowing what they are going to be. I do. I'm going to be a writer. Mr. J taught me more than English. He
taught me what Pops taught me before his passing...love.
