Adulthood Childhood Betrayal

Growing up becoming a man or woman,
Adulthood meant as childhood betrayal,

Walking a certain way has consequences,
Wearing a hoodie can get you shot,
Reading a map can save your life,
Paying rent isn’t a joke,

My inner child called me a fake,
Never afraid even if not a bodybuilder,
Wasn’t concerned with meeting another man’s gaze,
Losing hope a dead prophet’s nightmare,

Growing up becoming a man or woman,
Adulthood meant as childhood betrayal,
