we weren’t the only kids who grew up this way
to this day
kids are still being called names
the classics were
seems like each school has an arsenal of names
getting updated every year
and if a kid breaks in a school
and no one around chooses to hear
do they make a sound?
are they just the background noise
of a soundtrack stuck on repeat
when people say things like
kids can be cruel?
I promise you that one day these people will not matter. You will leave them behind, and your life will be so full that there won’t even be space for them in your thoughts. But until that day, please just remember this one thing.
They were wrong.
