POETRY: True Life
Jasmine Cannon, 18
New York, NY

Walking in the streets of loneliness
Looking for help but can’t find it
Crying, rolling, bawling
People don’t care, people
Keep walking, moving towards
What they need and want
You’re the last thing on their mind
All they want is that money, that hustle,
Hardcore sh-t
All that love club sh-t
True love is blood, sweat and tears
You have to get yourself through
Because nobody’s gonna hold your hand
That’s just true life.
