Something that is real

Tupac once said that's just the way it is things will never be the same. AN he right police brutality happening everywhere an no one puts up a fight. Last year they had punish a Muslim day ain't no one open they mouth or have a thing to say. They look at you different cause you "messed up" in the head but you smart, got feelings an understand what's being said. People get hated on cause they abnormalities, sexuality, skin pigment or religous beliefs. They just tryna be them without having to feel all the greifs. People always are out here getting seteryotyped you may not belive it but that's real life. No one cares how others feel we just dispel an act like everything's gonna be alright. They look at you cause you different but don't know a thing that you been through. Trust me I know how you feel, homelessness isn't cool. Everyone think people got everything they got, but it's a kid somewhere who couldn't even afford a pair of socks. You look at me different cause I'm me an not you. Trust an believe we like the same things but you don't come up to me cause we don't look the same. This goes on in the school's, an all the States but my mama always told me love em all even if they laugh in yo face. They stereotyped you cause you quite an they think something's up but if they just came up to you an talked that woulda been enough. I came from Youngstown Ohio an it's real different than here. Before I came to this school I wasnt in fear. I never seen so many police in a school EVER appear. I never seen so many people in one place my school only had about 300 kids nah we wasn't all the same race. We ain't have stuff like this, ppl getting up to perform all we had was speech n debate that wasn't no way to Reform. We ain't have clubs like this not even a BSU. I think all schools should have one cause you learn a lot about different cultures an you talk about what's bothering you. Back in the day we couldn't show who we was but I praise God for sending me here, writing this up to show you all my love. Intelligent we all are let's use it to come together. We are all people n together we Betta. Keep the negativity out yo head cause positivity is the real jackpot. I never woulda thought Daja B would ever share her thoughts. Doing this gives me hope an that's all that I always hoped for. Generations to come to learn from us n send love n not war.
~Daja B.-W.
