My Grandson is maturing and acquiring wisdom at an early age
This contributive poetic piece is his
own creation









I feel like a slave

I have a heart of a king

Impossible is nothing, many doubt me

I still climb that endless mountain

because I want to see

Is there a top for the scared souls

For whom are like me.


 The struggle is nothing but love

For which I say

I feel like a slave

I have a heart of a king

Haters don't want to see me make it
That's why they are that way

My faith is in my dreams


Forever they will stay

I pray to God

They will come true one day.


Hard work and dedication

Takes a long time

Pain and sorrow stress the mind

Focus is the key that’s no lie

No matter how much


they try to bring me down

I still will ride.


I Always go hard to the fullest

Only the strong survive

You have to be fearless

To be great so I refuse to die

by any means necessary

My wings will soon fly


Is needed to touch the sky.






 By Curtis A Bonilla

I doubt of anything will stop this young man from reaching any goal he has set for himself...enjoyed reading this poem, he sure takes after his grandfather...good job

Reviewed by Georg Mateos 3/22/2009
The poem reflects the spirit of Alexander, or Anibal or any other young man that never accepted the word impossible as the effort's end.
I like very much, "is there a top for scared souls?" because if this young man climbs up there to see if that's the truth, he certainly isn't a scared one.
Is this one one of your Musketeers? He certainly deserve to be.
