    ♣Adversity ζ January 21, 2015 ζ 8:01 am♣

    ♪Alwayz felt like my back was to a wall
    ♪Facing Adversity was my only call
    ♪Like I was up against all

    ♪With My Back Towards The World
    ♪With very little encouragement
    ♪That I soon learned a new form of understanding myself

    ♪I was just faced by so much Adversity
    ♪So many things that were up against me
    ♪That I felt my actions would never put me into diversity

    ♪When there are so many uneducated that there's no scarcity
    ♪Maybe it would've shown some clarity
    ♪But never thought I would become a rarity

    ♪When it came to school I never put in all my effort
    ♪Not realizing that's how my accomplishments would be measured
    ♪But I'd be lying if I said I was an expert

    ♪Back to my teens when I was just a kid
    ♪And all of the things I did
    ♪That society forbid

    ♪Alwayz out with my friends
    ♪Trying to be up on the latest trends
    ♪Out at the most important party events

    ♪That I was nonstop going to parties
    ♪That caused all of these

    ♪Which I Alwayz overslept
    ♪That sleeping and a school schedule was something that couldn't be kept
    ♪That over partying by me was all that began to reflect

    ♪When it came to school I was Alwayz absent
    ♪That soon failing was all that would happen
    ♪During this time I discovered my talent for writing and rapping

    ♪Wanting to write only music from my heart
    ♪That soon my Lyricz turned into art
    ♪Wanted my music to come from my deepest part

    ♪Soon my grades started to slip
    ♪Due to a just implemented attendance policy for each class I automatically failed
    ♪That I couldn't regain my grip

    ♪Everybody said I'd never amount to nothing seeing I'm a highschool dropout
    ♪Shadowed by so much doubt
    ♪That I was foreseen to take a known loser route

    ♪But wanted to change my fate
    ♪And have achievements which were great
    ♪Knew the odds were against me
    ♪Based on the high school drop out to graduate college rate

    ♪My life was forming to be a catastrophe
    ♪Felt like I'd never earn my high school diploma
    ♪Or be in a prestigious academy

    ♪I was up against all the odds
    ♪Felt like I'll never have a career
    ♪Or one of those high paying jobs

    ♪Knew I had technological skills
    ♪But with no education
    ♪I was at the bottom of one of the worst and steepest of hills

    ♪In my Youth I got into so much trouble
    ♪Seemed like it was in an endless struggle
    ♪That I was watching my life crumble
    ♪But everybody in life takes a stumble

    ♪Maybe this was my lesson to learn it was time to mature
    ♪At the time I wasn't too sure
    ♪But I was definitily feeling insecure

    ♪Wasn't sure if I'd end up as a lower end statistic
    ♪When nothing in life was being simplistic
    ♪Or was I just being narcissistic

    ♪Realized I was faced with more Adversity
    ♪That I'd never graduate on time
    ♪So I was only left with one choice

    ♪So I dropped out when I should've been a junior
    ♪Even though I was in my sophmore year
    ♪Based off all my failing

    ♪Never reached my junior grade
    ♪Thinking college would never happen
    ♪But was trying to think positive that maybe I could go to school for a trade

    ♪Even though in high school I was Alwayz popular
    ♪And Alwayz surrounded by the cool people
    ♪But I also had a lot of enemies
    ♪Who really didn't even know me

    ♪And even with popularity I still had to deal with bullies
    ♪But what young adult doesn't
    ♪In the school hallways

    ♪When I first started
    ♪I was kicked out within the first week of the G.E.D. program
    ♪Due to still skipping
    ♪I guess being unproductive was turning into my only slogan

    ♪Skipping was Alwayz a problem in high school that plagued me
    ♪Which further delayed me
    ♪And allayed me

    ♪So why would that change
    ♪Why would habits rearrange
    ♪Where my actions would feel strange

    ♪After a month of no school
    ♪The program accepted me back
    ♪As I'm trying to get my life back on track
    ♪Being productive is how I wanted to act

    ♪I wanted to have a future
    ♪And be a productive member in society
    ♪Because an education is the best way to a bright future

    ♪Within two weeks of starting my G.E.D.
    ♪I was already finished
    ♪Passing with high scores
    ♪As I earned my high school degree

    ♪I went through all the practice exams at such a high speed
    ♪And at each test I was able to succeed
    ♪That success is all I could see

    ♪Wasn't in high school long enough to even take my SAT's
    ♪Probably wouldn't even be able to spell words if I was in one of the senior year spelling bees
    ♪Not understanding an education was one of life's most important keys

    ♪In a prestigious college is where I was enrolled
    ♪As the dice of fate were being rolled
    ♪But wanted to achieve something that was greater than gold

    ♪Which would be an education
    ♪Stressed as I'm trying to remain patient
    ♪Even though I felt so Impatient
    ♪Based off my grade complacent

    ♪Still had a freshman year class when I dropped out of school
    ♪Was too busy partying
    ♪Hanging out with the popular groups which were seen as being so cool

    ♪That I didn't care about school
    ♪Or care to follow one rule
    ♪Just acting like an uneducated fool

    ♪Guess I still had things to learn
    ♪In order to earn
    ♪But getting a good education was something for me to yearn

    ♪But maybe failure was something I needed to experience
    ♪To each adherence
    ♪But in my life it caused so much interference

    ♪Took the entrance exams to get in college
    ♪Which to all other students were just placement exams
    ♪But if I passed these exams
    ♪I'd be accepted into this prestigious college

    ♪Stressed out of my mind
    ♪At least I was smart enough
    ♪To remain calm

    ♪Even though I failed the math exam
    ♪I was still accepted into this college
    ♪I didn't place in honor classes
    ♪But at least I did for regent placements

    ♪Because I passed all of the other tests
    ♪Even with overwhelming anxiety and stress
    ♪As I dealt with even more Adversity trying to be the best

    ♪For math I had to take remedial courses
    ♪Where I would've earned no credit
    ♪That it felt like a complete waste of time

    ♪I was earning credit in all my other classes
    ♪But I was having problems with how to concentrate
    ♪Which was constant

    ♪Within that first semester I was now dropping out of college
    ♪Because I felt like I wasn't smart enough
    ♪And that I lacked the knowledge

    ♪Because it felt like I was in over my head
    ♪Especially after what all my high school teachers and principal said
    ♪That I'd never be able to earn a college degree
    ♪And I'd Alwayz fail and see marks in the red

    ♪That stigmatism can carry
    ♪And cause a person to be wary
    ♪As I'm screaming Bloody Mary

    ♪The following year I again was enrolled back in college
    ♪Within that first semester
    ♪I again was dropping out of college

    ♪Because I didn't understand the importance to be brillant
    ♪And resilient
    ♪Because I was only seen in my Youth as being someone who would be a delinquent
    ♪As opposed to an achiever who would be persistent

    ♪Two more years passed
    ♪Without being fulltime
    ♪During that time I only took two college courses
    ♪But with both those courses I was successful

    ♪However I got help from that professor related to my poor attendance
    ♪Where he didn't deduct it from my overall grade
    ♪Which helped me to be successful

    ♪Because my past was still dictating each action
    ♪Even though I didn't Realize I was starting to gain some traction
    ♪But at the time it wasn't a perceived reaction

    ♪Still don't know how I did this when I was barely showing up to class
    ♪So how does one surpass
    ♪And pass
    ♪When I was still acting like an xxx

    ♪But I wanted to enroll as a fulltime student
    ♪But I was struck down with those actions and movement
    ♪Because my grades needed to show more of an improvement

    ♪Because I was told when it came to college that I wasn't matriculating
    ♪But I saw that as something for debating
    ♪Due to what my grades were illustrating
    ♪Because I felt an improvement is what it was indicating

    ♪I just had to make further changes to myself
    ♪Which when it came to school would help
    ♪At least that's how I felt
    ♪I Just need to put school above everything else

    ♪When it came to high school it was too late to return

    ♪And the Professor or Doctor would say this is easy
    ♪Because all of you

    ♪But for me that wasn't the case
    ♪It wasn't something I could interlace
    ♪In my heart I felt a disgrace
    ♪Because this wasn't something my mind chose to efface

    ♪It was knowledge I never learned or knew

    ♪And was something that I needed to continue

    ♪Retook that same failed math placement exam
    ♪And this time I overwhelming passed
    ♪That I was even allowed to take calculus
    ♪If I wanted

              Would like to thank this site, the judges, and this contest for inspiring me to write this song about being able to understand myself better as I matured, this song is 100% true, never published, I emailed it to myself the day I wrote it to create a copyright.
