I am Adonis
Son of Rashad and Natasha Abdullah
Who needs fun, leisure time, and a bag of M&M’s
Who loves basketball, life, and grammatically correct lyrics
Who sees wooden courts, pasta every night, and inspiration everywhere
Who hates scrambled eggs, mayonnaise, and terrible drivers
Who fears spiders, death, and getting trapped inside a water tower
Who dreams of owning an island, being an entrepreneur, and success
Who has found poems of encouragement
