A Tupac Shakur handwritten letter

Shakur expresses his deep infatuation for a young woman he was corresponding with. The last two pages are a poem ("Untitled") in which Shakur recounts the extreme highs and lows of his life and explains how none of them compares to the young woman. He writes, in part: "[Drawing of an eye] have fought and defeated the strongest men / I have faced the darkest night / I have challenged odds no man would risk / won battles no mortal would fight / [Drawing of an eye] have looked death between it's [sic] gloomy eyes / Took five bullets and walked away / I've been robbed, jumped, threatened and scarred / and still haven't changed my ways."
