Who am I? (poem)

$ 0.00

 

Who am I?

I am the Latino teenager who works

part-time in your mailroom.

You know the one you think is in a gang,

Just because I use street slang.

 

Who am I?

I'm the Black woman who works in your group.

You know the one who wears her hair in braids,

or a natural, or dreadlocks,

the one you call a radical with an attitude.

 

Who am I?

I am your blind neighbor.

You know  the one you always speak loudly to,

as though I had a hearing disability,

instead of one of sightlessness.
