POETRY: Hear My Cries
Kizzy Lane, 14
Pleasantville, NY

I’m sitting here cryin
I just wish I was dyin
Tired of being f-cked with
It’s like no one cares or gives a sh-t
Can’t someone care just a little bit?
The world is full of haters
With people who don’t care
Black killing each other
Can’t look each other in the eye
Town full of painful cries
Hear my cries
