I'm running,
feet pacing as I look out the corner of my eye:
heart racing.
I'm nothing but
a lonely, black child in a cruel world of racial remarks
and let-downs of labor opportunities,
destined to find my riches
like the pretty, white kids-
whose ancestors left them loads of money.
They seem to have it the easy way, but me.
I struggle.
