  By Nancy Rodriquez

A great big world of diversity, billions strong,
Still can't find a place I belong.
School is not safe or welcoming but a war zone.
Still can't find a place I belong.

Wanted to go to the movies but was scared I might get shot.
Can't find any...

As I lay by your side.

As I lay by your side.

As I lay here, they shut my eyes. But I can see you; I'm right by your side. I do not sleep; I'm awake. For heaven's sake, you whisper in my ears the things I want to hear. I'm still in love with you, my dear. I can't cry;...

Its there for all to see.
Agree or disagree.
