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 me 
but from now on 
i talk how i want, 
i dress how i like, 
i fight back. 
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
