A new start
New caras
New palabras
No idea how to fit in

The color of my skin es differente
The way I talk brings atencion
The way I dress es raro

“Welcome Pablo, how are you?”
(Slowly processing the words in my head)
“Hello”, le contesto
(Not knowing how to continue the conversation)

6 hours in school felt like a century
I felt like a cat surrounded by dogs
I felt like a black student in a white class during slavery

I leave the class with fear hidden within
Not knowing what to do
I feel frightened full of fear
A new start
