4: "In the Depths of Solitude" By Tupac Shakur I exist in the depths of solitude pondering my true goal Trying 2 find peace of mind and still preserve my soul CONSTANTLY yearning 2 be accepted and from all recieve respect Never compromising but sometimes risky and that is my only regret A young heart with an old soul how can there be peace How can i be in the depths of solitude when there R 2 inside of me This Duo within me causes the perfect oppurtunity 2 learn and live twice as fast as those who accept simplicity
5: I know a bit about feeling alone, and this is the feeling. If you feel like your going against the whole world by yourself, just keep hoping someone will help you out of there.
6: "if there be Pain" By Tupac Shakur If there be pain all u need 2 do is call on me to be with u And before u hang up the phone u will no longer be alone Together we can never fall because our love will conquer all If there be pain reach out 4 a helping hand and I shall hold u wherever I am Every breath I breathe will be into u 4 without u here my joy is through my life was lived through falling rain so call on be if there be pain

8: "Birdhouses" By Cynthia Rylant People said they were a good excuse for looking up
9: First off, I like short poems that actually go with the name of the poem, not some random poem name. The title could have been WAR and instead it would have been about eggs. But no this poem goes with the name and makes me think further into what this poem really is about.
10: "In the event of my demise" By Tupac Shakur In the event of my demise when my heart can beat no more I Hope I Die For A Principle or A Belief that I had lived 4 I will die Before My Time Because I feel the shadow's Depth so much I wanted 2 accomplish before I reach my Death I have come 2 grips with the possibility and wiped the last tear from My eyes I loved All who were positive In the event of my Demise
11: If I were to have any last words to say before my life ends, this poem says it. There is some deep thinking into this poem about if something were to happen to him. And the feeling you get from this poem is immediate.
