Hi Maggie,
I'm not a fan of his, but I liked getting to that line: "I solemnly swear to always treat this roof like my daughters and raise it," and the whole idea of being not afraid to face demons, and to take a stand. Courage and strength, Maggie, you have that and so much more, and songs like these are good, energetic reminders!

This is a really great song, I hadn't heard this one. Thank you! A new great song has to be one of the best gifts you could give anyone.

The wall, breaking through, the falling, the flying...yes. None of us are alone, even if we've been down the same road.

i LOVE his music. his passionate voice and lyrics are totally necessary in today's musical randb/rappop climate of such passionless, vanilla, repetitive music and voices. he is rageful, joyful, fearful, whatever, but he's fully engaged in his music, and his lyrics are real to him and his life.

my friend said he's a 'beautiful poet' and i agree.

I heard an interview with Eminem on NPR a while back. He is a smart guy, amazing poet and spinner of words and sounds. I am happy he is in recovery. I hope his words will continue to have a more positive, productive edge to them. Youth need that now - not the angry, amoral crap so many of these incredibly talented rappers hang with.

agreed.

i listen to this song like five times a day!

I 'm not a fan of Eminem anymore (I was as a child/teenager), but I like this song. Just the message I have to tell a friend of mine.
