September In Charlotte

A poem.

September In Charlotte
Pablo Romero

Here I stand

On this line

Part of a band

Supporting beliefs that are mine

Now I kneel

Hands in the air

The emotion I can feel

Charging the air

I speak my piece

Feeling sweet release

Justice is what I seek

Justice is what I seek

Here I stand

On this line

I have been issued a command

Here with brothers mine

I look out

I see fear, anger

On faces all about

I know I'm in danger

Blue is the color of my sleeve

My duty knows no reprieve

I wonder if I'll ever see

My family again

But no greater end could there be

No better Amen

So if I don't see the morning,

Please don't get caught up in mourning

Seize the day

And pursue justice without sway

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
