    Memorable Quotes:

    • You've got to believe in the poetry. Because everything else in your life will fail you. Including yourself..
    • Drugs change who you are as a person.
    • You're 17. You don't know shit. You think you're hard? I'm harder. You think you're tough? I'm tougher. You got clean and want to kill yourself? Same motherf*ckin' story here. You want to know why? I'll tell you why. 'Cause you don't know how to live life. You don't have the tools. You're too busy running around, trying to bullshit everybody into thinking you're hard, and you don't give a f*ck, when in reality, you give so much of a f*ck, you can't even bear to be alive. So guess what? New rule. No more wasting my motherf*ckin' time. You wanna use? Use. But the least you can do is be honest. Own that shit.
