A Boy*

A Boy
There’s a boy.
He’s in the dark.
He talks and talks.
He talks but no one listens.
He’s fallen but never been caught.
He takes the time to speak his
mind, but no one’s taken the time
to listen to his rhymes.
He’s in the dark.
He wants to come out.
But he can’t find his way through
his dark, dark, scary mind.
He’s scared,
scared of himself,
scared he can’t get out,
get out of his dark and scary mind.
Y. Carrasquillo, BPS #27, Grade 7*
