unpublished poem by a youth from Larkin Street Youth Services
*typos and capitalization are [sic]
Im STARting To Give up, Give In
Im starting To Give up ON
A Reality that CaME about Oct 17.
The DAy I Met My RacheL!
She Seemed To ComE AT Me
FRom BEhind and my cLosed eyes oF mind!
And UnCoveR Them To Something Real
and Overwhelming, To Good To Be TRue
she Once Said.
Those Words Seem To Be The Reality at this Point!
Looks Like I HAve No other
choice But To GiVE up, LEt Go!
Give up An Emotion Not
Wanted By HER..
But StiLL HERE And SAy
I LoVe you RacHeL
But Why Do I LoVE You?
