I ollie to the
Kickflip with my
Board, trucks, &
Wheels, the tricks
Are the element
My board I have
To ride, smoothly
I steady, I kick
Faster & faster
I bail & fall now.
It is a disaster.
I am no longer
The master.

    Forget It – Let Me Skate
    by anonymous
    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.
