Race Problem

When I was 17
I was still in school
Sex, and getting out of school
Was largely on my mind,
TV shows and Rock bands
Calling my friends to talk for hours
And food
And acne.

What was never on my mind
Is that I might die some night
Walking home from 7-11
With candy and a soft drink

Pale skin shielding me
From murderer's rage.
