Thank you, I did not expect it to be what it was - it gave me goosebumps listening to it and brought tears to my eyes.

You should watch the entire "Coach Carter" movie, it's truly inspirational... that poem is incredibly deep, what made that scene so powerful was the evolution of this teen through hell to taking his life back- when he stood up and said that I had major goosebumps I still get them watching that- but it's more intense when you realize just how amazing it was that HE stood up and said THAT. Great poem, very wise...

Here's another great one.... just replace every time you hear "football" with the words "Internet marketing" :)

I think for me hearing this today and taking it out of the context of the film and not knowing the story of the film made me tune into the words more.

The first poetry I can recall hearing as a child was from Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood' read by Richard Burton on the radio. The Welsh accent and depth of the voice as well as the words were magic. It is a play or narrative but the words are extremely hypnotic in a poetic way.
