before the age add up_the hood changes
before the teen & adult
we were sparklers at dust twinkling
before the society's norm veils our eyes
burrows into the heart of us
tells us to blend in blend in blend blend in blend in
dim our lights,mower our edges,bury our voices in camouflage bag
discarded in a still train trapped in the subway.
but the society is wrong
to be different is unique
to be different is to be you
so own it.
