Kyle, I am quite touched by your poem. I don't know if you wrote this based on recent experience or past. I feel as though someone needed to reach out to you in your youth. To me this about the young, black male trying to make sense of the world with its prejudices and what it takes to survive on the streets, possibly even as a gang member, you have no choice living in a lower class neighborhood. The world of gangs has drawn you into a world that you fight to stay out of in an attempt to make something of yourself. If this is about you in a recent life, I wish you all the best and stay strong.
