2: I am from India, From the crowded city to the desert I am from the Indian shoreline To the Himalayan mountains I am from having fun to serious thinking and hard working I am from very strict parents To whom I listen to 99.9 percent of the time I am from not listening at once like red light runners I am from being a kid to eating traditional Indian food From eating Indian food 24/7 to eating a variety I am from being bored all the time To being more social and more out going I am from vacations after vacations From Orlando, Florida to new Delhi, India I am from my life speeding away Time is a thief, stealing the hours of the day
3: I am from listening to stories To reading stories Without wondering why waste time I am from a world of fantasies To a world with more reality I am from being unreasonable To being practical on rare occasions I am from India From the crowded city to the desert I am from the Indian shoreline To the Himalayan mountains
5: The superb aroma of my mom's cooking Lures me into the kitchen, full of food There awaits me all my favorite dishes, from Indian food to American sweets straight out of the warm oven As I take my food to eat, in walks my sister and stands by the dead house plant next to the window I was grabbing the green iceberg lettuce to see there were Rasgullas my most favorite Indian sweet of all time I was ecstatic because I hadn't had rasgullas in a while I ran up stairs to give my mom and dad a big thank you
6: Honey, listen to me carefully I’m going to tell you once You may have people who you count as friends But have you taken a moment to consider how a friend really acts? A friend will help you in good and bad situations They will comfort you through bad times And they will cheer you on in good times That is very rare to come across But some people may only perform the act to be a friend And when time comes they may back you up Or they may back stab you for their own advantage Take a moment to consider the people you call friends
7: Take that moment to reflect on your life And when you do that also remember That I have gone through all of this All of the things that you are going through You may come across backstabbing friends Or you may come across caring friends but Making friends and coming across friends is very easy But making true friends is very hard indeed
8: Only the wise think behind the title To find something that is vital To make the future sublime Some think that it's a tough school Other thinks that it is a waste of time Because all they want is to be cool But only the wise think behind the title To find something that is vital Gwinnett School of Mathematics Science and Technology Where we study physics, Chinese, and biology The hard work here is suggested by the name With plenty of due respect or any fame You get advanced further than any other school Some people may call you a nerd But inside you know you can control that tool And let the others tweet like a bird The hard work here is suggested by the name With plenty of due respect or any fame You get a laptop for all your homework which adds to responsibility And with that you will get the best seal on your diploma With the oncoming load of stress You want to be sure you get the golden crest Something that you wish for with all your heart You will be able to hold your head up high with all of you success And never have to look back at a chart All the good comments will make you happy more or less With the oncoming load of stress You want to be sure you get the golden crest Make sure you take full use of all your knowledge Since it will come in handy sooner or later
9: All the excellent knowledge you gain with education from here You will not be able to fear The challenges that lie out in front of you No matter what happens these challenges will never disappear These challenges give determination to Regardless if the disappear new challenges will reappear All the excellent knowledge you gain with education from here You will not be able to fear Enjoy the education you receive And you shall never regret your journey of hard education Listen here GSMST I heart you The knowledge given from you can make sense to Only to the right people Challenge put out to me And not the feeble May get success like a cup of sweet tea Listen here GSMST I heart you The knowledge given from you can make sense to You have the best teachers to teach the subject You also have the best students to learn the material
10: When I think of language arts I get a face that’s sour as tarts I think grammar which I hate Don't like it like being late Just like pushing a loaded shopping cart
12: Aye aye aye aye aye aye aye aye Me plus you, I'ma tell you one time [x3] One time, one time When I met you girl my heart went knock knock Now them butterflies in my stomach won't stop stop And even though it's a struggle love is all we got And we gon' keep keep climbing to the mountain top Your world is my world And my fight is your fight My breath is your breath And your heart [chorus] And girl you're my one love, my one heart My one life for sure Let me tell you one time (Girl, I love, girl I love you) I'ma tell you one time (Girl, I love, girl I love you) You look so deep, you know that it humbles me You're by my side, them troubles them not trouble me Many have called but the chosen is you Whatever you want shawty I'll give it to you
13: Your world is my world And my fight is your fight My breath is your breath And your heart [chorus] [x2] Shawty right there She's got everything I need And I'ma tell her one time Give you everything you need down to my last dime She makes me happy I know where I'll be Right by your side 'Cause she is the one And girl you're my one love, my one heart My one life for sure Let me tell you one time (Girl, I love, girl I love you) I'ma tell you one time (Girl, I love, girl I love you) [Chorus] Me plus you, I'ma tell you one time [x3] One time, one time
