(Behind) Her HS Looking Glass
"You laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same."
-selfies valued over war zone photos
-individual opinions scorned
-social media quicksand
-political division on color, not ideals
-infamous, immortal racism
-cat-calling, yelling, & cursing
-frenemies & acquaintances
-students & slackers
-panic attacks over an unintelligent comprehension test
-education cheaters & relationship cheaters
-breakups & hookups
-users & abusers
-teachers who don't give a shit
-the girl in the mirror
-her color, smile, afro hair
-her intelligence & charisma
-the glance she knows to expect
-the look that categorizes & boxes her in
-that society already knows what she'll be
-the societal wreck they suspect & know is me
" You laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same."
Which endures the weight of society's never ending blame?
