About the Poem
This poem has a double value. Obviously, it is about my endless fight against anti-skate laws and skate-hating cops; but it is also about finding peace when the world around you falls down... on top of you.

Forget It - Let Me Skate
Pavement - my boundless world
free to fly
empowered by this feeling she sends;
free until the pigs roll around -
they clip my wings,
taking part of me away;
make me feel empty inside.
I can't go on this way;
I need somewhere to go.
When love has me down,
when school pins me down,
when her shit holds me down,
when all luck has escaped me,
let me strap on my skates.
Let me roll down the street;
let me try the tricks
even if I break myself.
I do it for my mental health.
I need to feel her there;
I need to be in peace.
I need to hear the silence;
I need to live.
SKATE OR DIE.
