This poem is all about age discrimination. The feeling of inadiquacy and the unfairness that goes along with being a "kid."

I wish that people

would see me. See

the Real Me. They

look at me, or

at my work, and

they say, "No...

He couldn't do this,

He just a kid. He

must be lying."

But I do, and they

cant see it. Just

Because of age...

Just because they

cant, doesn't mean

I cant. Why should

age matter if the

judgement is sound?
