Things I Will Do…

Graduate college
Become a famous fashion designer/have my own brand
Buy a house
Buy a BMW Xg or a wagon Benz
Buy my mother a house
Get my son through college
Live in LA or ATL
Give back to my ‘hood
Be a role model to my city
Attend church every Sunday
Buy my father a house
Get my grandmother a huge tombstone
Move my little brothers from around here to attend better schools
Get married
Travel to every state
Travel to every country
Take cruises
Take my family to Disney World.

Collaborative Poem

In class last week we got happy! We worked on our metaphors and tried to define happiness:

Happiness is…

Opening day at Wrigley Field
My family’s faces when I take them out to eat
When I hear little Jack repeat something I taught him
Riding my Jigster up and down Madison Street
A sexual climax
Knowing I have a second chance at life outside of jail
The sound of silence
Working the job of your dreams
Getting past the pain
Getting my high school diploma for my parents
Being at the movies with my girlfriend
The Cubs winning the World Series
When I see my son smile

A Letter by Jose
My dear beloved forever,

It has been a long time I have been able to feel the rapturous ecstasy of your goodness and kindness to my utmost fulfillment of joy and justice to your true believer in you. Though it has been awhile sin2000px-Chicago_Cubs_Logo_svgce I have been with you I want you to know your love of what you do in such a deep and life lasting way has given me hope. And all who love and care for your good calling in providences favor on you. Doubt and sadness no longer cover me like an impenetrable fog of darkness. So thank you. I wish you the best and most divine prospects in your, and all your loved one’s future, including me.
With undying love yours…
