Let me tell you.


Let me tell you what it's like

To wake up every morning

And do the same thing

For the same people

For the same amount of time

Every day

For fourteen years.


Let me tell you how it feels

To make friends

To fall in love

And have them leave at the end.


Let me tell you how to react when you

Work hard and you're

Compared to standards around you,

To not be good enough

To get into a school

That will benifit your future.


Let me tell you that 

As good as you think you are

And as good as you may be

You do not compare

To the average.
