The moment I Knew

Thu, 06/27/2019 - 20:29 -- Cedmond

When the world started to fear me, 

And I it. 

When the color of my skin

Came before any of my intentions. 

When I realized I no longer had control over what happened to my body. 

And I became just that- 

A body. 

A person, a number, attempting not to become a statistic. 

And I opened my eyes to the chaos and ugly of the world. 

To the beauty of it as well. 

And as I opened my eyes. . . 

The world opened up to me. 

This poem is about: 
Me
