Poem - Not Brilliant, But I'm Fairly Proud of It

Firstly, if anyone gets offended by this, I apologise. You may think that this is unnecessary but I've known a lot of very easily-offended people, so it's a sort of habit.

Poem (currently untitled):

Hey Jess
Where you off to now?
I'm going to school
Even though my mom doesn't understand
She says I'm not smart
Says I'll never learn
I tried to explain
But she just doesn't understand

She says I'll be dead before 40
Just like my old man
But I'm gonna get smart
And I'm gonna learn
I'm gonna work so hard
To get what I'm worth.

The other kids aren't like me
They're not black too
I don't care 'cause I'm gonna
Get through
They call me stupid
They call me dumb
Then they laugh real hard
Like they're having real fun

Now you know that my mom, well
She doesn't understand
"Listen, girl, you're useless
Just like your dad."
She says that to me
Nearly every day
Well I'm gonna show her
I'll take a stand

Well I'm gonna work hard
And those white kids'll see
Just what this little black girl
Really can be.
I'm gonna make my mom
So very proud
'Cause you can't keep
This little black girl down

Hope it's alright. To be honest, it's not much. I just wrote it in the school library today at lunch 'cause I was a bit bored. If you want me to explain what it's about, just say
Nothing to see here.
