8 Mile, 9 Mile, 10 Mile

I used to sit sift reaching
For hours reading
For others common interest

Waiting to become Madonna
All the while I'm Eminem, and
My mother spent her first years
After birth living in the same trailer park -
long before him

I couldn't relate, can't relate
Had class parataxis and or
Dysmorhpia or
All the feels felt too straight

But all the bleach blonde
Crew cut white boys that I
Walked by at East
Detroit and Lincoln High
Could've gotten it and
I wish they had
