Learning From Knocks:

I used to be a fucking idiot!
I guess that's why some people never took me serious,
But I have learned from the truth that is hideous;
My only wish is that I wasn't so oblivious...

Because when I took a fall from my cloud,
I hit the solid ground, rose up to be pushed down,
Misery surround now.
I'm just fightin' this war,
Wagin' for my own crown,
Letter for letter,
So I can say I never backed down.

Facing adversity, my only adversary,
Is my own drive to make success a necessity.
From when I greet the morning until I say my goodnight.
I'll still be chasing after dreams until I walk in the light.

So for the patience and the people still readin' my works,
I can tell you I will never die, that's just a quirk.
I bet you'll see me comin' back like I'm raised from the dead,
And I will leave you with emotions that'll ring in your head!

- Chen Yuan Wen, 12th May 2014

Sup guys,

It's been a long time. Been going through so much in my regular life that it's just been crazy for me.

I experienced some good shit...and then a whole lot of bad shit, I guess it really gave me perspective on what I should be doing.

I'll still be trying hard to the bitter end and I'm always thankful for those times that someone tells me on facebook that they still read my works and stuff. It's amazing

-Chenbeard the Pirate

P.S. I will rap this for you guys when I get some free time

Knocks is a good teacher, But the goal of all teachers is to stop their children from learning from knock. Because, knocks for as good a teacher It be, It leaves Itself fair share of suffering.
