"Write about a trouble in your life," they say-
but in no way
can I relay
the way that I got laid
into the sad bed of impurity
as a seven year old that was raped.
no, that's too personal.
They want it Clean, Cut and Polished.
"My life was hard(ish) but I've risen to the occasion!"
I am a diamond in the rough,
Look over here, and you'll see
my grades don't suck.
They could be worse, like THAT kid over there, who lost her mom to the war of cancer and fights depression on a regular basis and tried to commitsuicidetheotherday, so, I wrote her a song so that maybe she would understand that someone is actually there for her.
No, you want
a cute cliché
beautifully written essay
about what makes me a fabulous student.
I'll write some white lies,
and put on a mask,
and paint my world just the right color
I'm offically a college student.
and you have no idea who I really am.
