More No Matter How Loud I Shout

Humes worked with kids at juvenile hall in a writing class. This poem contains a line that's the book's title.

Who Am I?

Take a trip in my mind
see all that I've seen
and you'd be called a
beast, not human being.

F*@k it, cause there's
not much I can do,
there's no way out, my
screams have no voice no
matter how loud I shout....

I could be called a
low life, but life ain't
as low as me. I'm
in juvenile hall headed
for the penitentiary.
George Trevino (16)
