Life's double standards

Wake up

 

Shower

 

Wash my face

 

Put on nice clothes

 

Brush my teeth

 

Things only i will see because no one ever seems to notice me

 

Eat breakfast

 

Make my lunch

 

Things I only do because I'm forced to. As if id ever want to eat anything.

 

Pack my backpack

 

Get on shoes

 

All to get to school, to see my friends; the ones that secretly hate me

 

Get to class

 

Work hard

 

Study harder

 

Just for the grade that doesn't matter

 

Go home.

 

Do homework

 

Do chores

 

Things that seem to take forever. Do forever

 

Go on a run.

 

Work out

 

Almost like it'll make you look better, feel better. It wont. It doesn't

 

Go to bed

 

But not to sleep.

 

Online with your friends.

 

Except not friends. 

 

Friend.

 

Friend and her lover.

 

Lover that makes me feel like I'm not good enough for her.
