There Is A Shadow On My Body This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   There is a shadow on my body,

It's all over me.

I'm isolated because of it,

I'm sad can't you see?

Everywhere I look

Is a dark gloomy shadow,

It covers me and follows me,

Wherever I may go.

I can't get rid of it

No matter how hard I try.

People tease and make fun of me,

And so I start to cry.

There's no way to get their respect back,

All of this because I'm BLACK!
