I, too wanna state a purpose.
I am the bad guy.
They send me to rethink things about me not 
being strong.

But I am strong. 
And doubting me thinking I can’t do it,
And I gotta push myself harder to do better.
I’ll be in the streets yelling I can do it. I’ll do 
better pushing myself is the best thing yet
When the day comes. 
Nobody’ll dare 
Say to me,
“You can’t do it,”
They’ll see how there were wrong.
And be better late than sorry
I, too am strong

    We just read your poem and would like to say, you selected a great picture to go along with your poem. We like that your remix poem focused on the speaker being strong. Your poem is inspiring us to do a remix of your remix because it is fire! It hits spots in our prefrontal cortex.
