A Poem by David the writer

From between the binding halls of high school
To the cold concrete streets we see ourselves crossing
There are always shadows
There will always be those cold corners no one notices

These shadows hide things "normal" people don't want to see
"Normal people" won't acknowledge these shadows because they don't want to
But we all know these shadows are there
Though, do we ever know all of what is in the shadows, or who

I am in the shadows
I am forced in the shadows of my bedroom closet
I am stuffed away in the shadows of tough concrete streets
But I do not stand alone, and that makes me feel more lonesome than anything

For the people, we the people
These shadows are not "un-American"
Love thy neighbor
These shadows are not against any religion

These shadows exist in your streets, in your schools, in your life
And you walk past them every day without knowing unless you too live in shadows
But they don't have to
If the light of day, where everyone else roamed, was safe, they wouldn't have to

I am proud to represent these shadows of ours
To step among these day dwellers and smile 
Because that is where I belong, as do the others
And if "normal people" don't want to see me, then they can close their eyes, but I am done hiding
