Young Man - Poem by lakiaya thompson

A young man
trying to grow up so fast
hanging in the streets
not ever missing a beat
smoking and drinking
cussing and fussing
God what is wrong
this world is so messed up
girls pregnant here and there
boys somking weed
some of them just as bad as feins
but what i think they fein for
is love, family, and support
so young man just wait
take your time theres no rush
go to school get a job
noone is pressuring you
just slow down..not for anyone else
just for you..young man
