Hi Constantine, welcome to the poetry forum:)

Eh, that’s Kevin up there:)

first let me say that I’m just the Moderator, not a skillful poet.

That said, I have a question. In your first line do we read it as:

I grew up with dreams of, bridges being built and
of skin colors crumbling like concrete walls? (two dreams/hopes)

Or

I ‘built-up’ dreams of bridges being built and
skin colors crumbling like concrete walls?

I guess the word ‘grew’ is kinda throwing me.

Help:)
