soul mates

Living these streets
I've been watching this man,
Ever since he moved here
In early Jan.
He was young, tall,
And dark like me,
Living life a little differently.
White folks would greet him
As he walked,
He'd answer back in the way that they talked.
They seldom
Spoke to me that way,
"You're one of the good ones",
To him they'd say.
He acted as if he were
A class above,
I guess he's the kind
Of black they approved of.
