We go to school in hopes that maybe we might not be called another name. Maybe just for once,for a day,we may remain invisible to the predators that see us as their prey.
‘You’re a freak’ they tell us
‘You don’t belong’ they taunt
It’s a constant battle within yourself trying to prove them wrong. That you’re not a freak. That you do belong.
We were sent to school by our parents thinking it’s safe and that we won’t experience the cruelty of the world in a place,supposedly,deemed safe.
