About the Poem
I came to America from Poland about 5 years ago I thought everything will be ok That no one would be racist. But I was wrong. Until this day people judge me because of my race. Even my school treats me differently, even though I'm above average they think of me as below normal. I wrote this to show how I feel about this .

I walk down the street
I look left and right
I hoping people will like
I hope they don't mind
I'm not from around here
I came from far away
I'm a stranger among them
I hope that's ok
I walk in fear
I look in confusion
I feel a tear in my eye
They look at me differently
But I heard they're so nice
The life here's so easy
It'll all be all right
They give me a look
Some start to laugh
What's going on?
When I ask them why,
They tell me to do the "math"
I don't know their language,
I don't know their ways,
I'm scared and petrified
in my childish ways
So my face is different color
my language not the one you speak -
Because of that, am I really bad?
I always thought I was unique
It's been awhile now.
I got used to the taunting.
I stopped caring
they'll find me to their liking
