Click above to hear Daazmen read his poem.
Don’t sit down and watch TV all day
every day. Go outside and play basketball
with some friends and have a great time.
Don’t stay home watching Family Guy
or Sports Center and wishing you
are that LeBron James guy or the next
A-Rod or whoever.
Go make progress.
Go make things happen
like things have never happened before.
By Daazmen, 8th grade
