Who Are We?By Deion Diaz 2014 High School Contest Winner in Poetry
They got me thinking it’s
the home of the brave,
But I’m sitting here feeling
just like a slave.
People seem to say Hey, that’s just society
I’m thinking Yo, that’s just propriety
They got me thinking that that’s
how it’s supposed to be.
I think that’s bull: Why can’t I be who I want to be?
We’re all living life like there’s only one chance but
you’re living life like you’re just like a cat.
You got nine lives? I doubt it.
So don’t complain to me about it.
