4: THIS I BELIEVE I believe that if sports weren't around, people would suffer. The holocaust was real even though people denied that it happened.I believe that professional sports players do deserve the salary they get. I believe that break dancing shows character, that music speaks and sends emotion to the human body. I believe that the old school is usually better than the new school. I believe that school is educating and VERY BORING! I believe in me.
5: If I Knew that I was going to die this evening I Would... I would take a shower and get cleaned up so that I am fresh. I would steal the keys to a Lotus Evora (sports car). Then I would cruze around the country to pick up precious memories so I wouldn't forget the life I had. I would then ride my way back home, plop back on my couch and watch the basketball game. Then in the end, I will know what I did was worth it.
6: I Want To Be I want to be a professional basketball player. A basketball soaring in the air as the sweat of the over sized beasts fling off my back. I want to be a break dancer. A human sling shot flipping in the air as people stick their eyes on me like glue, speechless. I want to be successful. A grown man graduating from collage on a good note, knowing that life will given great oppertunities to live for.
7: Short Story (The Big City Life) You wake, stretch the bones in your body and yank open your blinds only to see busy streets cluttered with litter. But don't get me wrong, when the sun starts to lower and the moon takes its place, this place looks ustaunishing as the colorful lights glisn off buildings and shine onto your face. You drive on the streets to were you can only see multiple red or yellow beams of light zoom by your way like a hawk swooping down to ketch its prey. You never suspect a thing. Know thats the Big City Life.
8: Inside Me Inside me is a basketball lunging in the air as the sweat of the over sized beasts flings off my back. Inside me is a break dancer, a human slingshot flipping through the air as the croud sticks their eyes on me like glue, speechless. Inside me is a cool, funny, and caring friend who loves to meet people from all around the world. Inside me is me.
9: Where I'm From I am from the sunshine of the first month of spring. I am from a basketball court that contains loud noises mainly from basketball dribbling. I am from a family who always tells me, " Do good in school !" I am from a school that helped me find my passion for break dancing and that helped me show it off to others so that I can help them find their passion. I am from the Martinez family.
10: Alliteration Poem Basketball beats all the other boring sports by an imbarising amount in my book. Tallness isn't on my side but tall players are on my team and together we are told to dominate others. We have had some wins and we have had some losses, but no matter what, we play hard and hardly have to rely on ourselves.
11: My Peeps My grandpa was usually the funny or the chilled guy sitting on his old couch with a beer in his hand watching football and it didn't matter what game was on because he loved football in general. I got to witness this many times but the last time was the most memerable. I remember walking in, hearing the cheers of a croud as someone was about to score a touchdown as I looked over to see my grandpa relaxed on his old couch with a beer in his hand. Good times.
12: Quotes Of Gandhi "An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching." "Be the change that you want to see in the world." "Faith... must be enforced by a reason... when faith becomes blind it dies." "Fear has its use but cowardice has none." "In a gentle way you can shake the world."

21: Comments This writing meant a lot to me and it shows by the specific words I used in my poems. In my opinion, Mohandas Gandhi has the best quotes to give out and I reccomend you listen to his quotes sometime.
