I Am Scared



I am scared.

I am scared of the world I live in.

I am scared of the people that live in this world with me.

I am scared of the people that commit crimes.

I am scared of the people that stop people from committing crimes.

I am scared of the people that take the oath to protect people from other people that commit crimes.

I am scared to drive.

I am scared to walk.

I am scared to run.

I am scared to reach.

I am scared to wear a hoodie.

I am scared to meet a description.

I am scared because I am guilty before proven innocent.

I am scared.

I am scared because I may one day bring a child in this world.

I am scared because they'll look like me.

I am scared because my girlfriend’s 6 year old son loves nothing more than playing with toy guns,

And fighting crime like Batman.

I am scared because his skin tone doesn't tell his story.

I am scared because he doesn't know the world outside of kindergarten, sports, and playing.

I am scared because he's guilty until proven innocent.

I am scared.

I am scared because I am mothers only child.

I am scared because she sees a 24 year old college graduate,

And the world sees a thug.

I'm scared because she taught me wrong from right but that won't matter

Because I'm wrong no matter what she taught me.

I am scared because she is guilty of having me.

I am scared.

I am scared because black lives don't matter but all lives do.

I am scared of the world I live in.

I am scared of the people that live in this world with me.

I am scared of the people that commit crimes.

I am scared of the people that stop people from committing crimes.

I am scared of the people that take the oath to protect people from other people that commit crimes.

I am scared to drive.

I am scared to walk.

I am scared to run.

I am scared to reach.

I am scared to wear a hoodie.

I am scared to meet a description.

I am scared because I am guilty before proven innocent.


Sincerely,

A BLACK MAN in america.
