My Story, Through My Eyes is about a young African American dealing with the ups and downs of life. This book is my diary. This book deals with my happiness and sorrow. And that one question that constantly stays on my mind. Will I live to see tomorrow? We are all human. No matter race or age. We all think and feel. We may not think or feel the same way. But all of us do these things. My Story, Through My Eyes is about what I've seen and experienced so far in this world. It's about the intense emotions that I feel. It's about the dreams and nightmares that I have that seemed so real. It's about life. It's about my pain that causes me to have strife. We all felt joy and sadness. We all have seen what happens when insanity turns into madness. We all have seen things that may have been too unbelievable to see. We all felt that love that wasn't meant to be. We all felt heartache and pain. We all felt stress and strain. It's about not giving up. It's about trying. It's about death and dying. It's about commitment and dedication. This book is somewhat like an education.
Love and happiness
Depression and sadness
An insane mind
That leads to madness
And then separation
Determination and dedication
The importance of education
Emotional and physical pain
It's hard to maintain
Quitting and trying
Disappointment caused by lying
Living life and dying
My points of view
The things that I've done
That I have inside my head
The dreams and nightmares that I have
When I'm asleep in bed
The things that I've experienced
My emotions from good
Is about me
I hope that you get a chance
To visualize what I see
This is my life
This is my story
"Inside of me are things unknown, through poetry the unknown is shown"

what a dynamic book! so refreshing, so
inspiring! I especially like your poems-
"Finding My talent", "My Mom", "my Grand-
mothers", and "My Cousins." I am reading
your Mother's copy overnight. Can't wait to
get a copy to add to my Library.
Keep up the good work,Jason!
Much success to you!
