love and war
my story is based on romeo and juliet and is based in oakland cuz theirs alot of gangs and also a lot of people in love or hopeless lovers.
All these false stereotypes make me feel bad
Like crack babies.
The most interesting thing is the division between
The Oakland hills and the flat lands we know.
Two families part of this division
A wealthy family and a poor family.
This separation will soon lead to desperation
The desperation turns to fascination and soon
All the dreams
It all started on a nice warm day for the flatlander
Riding his bike through Oakland enjoying the beautiful street art
When he caught a glimpse at something even more enticing
“Wow she’s pretty” he thought “no way i have a chance”
Little did he know she was diggin him too “wow hes cute” she said to herself
This girl was from the hills and thriving with wealth and privilege
He would think of her on the daily
Hoping he would see her again one day
They saw each other
The boy waved with his calloused rough work hands
She waved with her hands as smooth as velvet.
He got her snap she got his insta and they hit it off
Or so they thought.
The families didn’t like each other because the people in the hills had more privilege and the hills didn’t like the flatlands because they were “bums” and “unclean”
This made the boy feel bad and the girl felt a sense of sadness
