she's bluegreen.
dreadlocks and lips.
I give her poetry homework.
and even if she fails.
she succeeds.

when it hits.
I feel it.
when I am older.
I will play.
listen closely.

hear the here.
and let your silent voice scream.
ain't it funny.
that the ones that hurt us.
are the ones we care most about.

question marks.
make the river.
when I'm older.
I will watch myself die.
and laugh because life was good.
