Concrete Kid - Poem by Kyle Shield Laster

The need to feel my difference
Is a siren's song unsung
Has been urged by my indifference
To being black and male and young.

I was raised to brush the idea of
Being something off my shoulder.
Only street lights gave me love
And brightened every year that I got older.

It's so hard today in this everyday
Man made much unneccessary battling
Between my heart and yours. So love now bores?
Pray the streets do hush their rattling.
