Where do I start? I'm a... geek. I'm a Broadway geek. I'm a TMNT geek. And, most important of all, I'm Marvel geek (seriously, I have an infinite amount of Marvel memes saved on my phone).

what they say i am

PROMPT: Open Prompt

i strive
to be more
than what
they say i am,
to disprove
the stereotypes.

don't talk ghetto,
my mom tells me,
them white folks
will get scared


wear your nice clothes,
my dad says,
don't want them thinking
we're broke


don't get into fights,
my older sister warns,
they take it as a threat
and try to hurt you like
they did more


but today
i talk how i want,
i dress how i like,
i defend myself.
and, most importantly,
i will be me.
'cause maybe i can't disprove
the stereotypes
but i sure as hell
can be more than them

    Hi weirdo! Just finished peer reviewing this piece. Do you mind doing "Opting Out of Social Media" for me, and preferably before the 30th at midnight? I know it's cutting it a bit close, but it's for the contest. If you can't, that's fine. I still value your feedback. Thanks!
