High School Experience

by butterflyzrfree

Dawn cracks
You're late!
Hurry up

But my makeup!
Wash face
Uniform school
Everything dressed
I'm ugly!
Pimple face!

I hate her
Today in class
She laughs at me
"You're a loser!
go back to the farm!"
Cheerleaders all
Smile at joke

Hatred conspiracy
don't bully at school
read the sign
someone tore it down!
of course

I'm so shy
See that cute boy?
He's so fly
He's looking at her!
Evil witch
Cheerleader witch
head bitch

What did the teacher say?
he's looking at me!
oh God,
Will he call my name?
oh no! "I don't know"
class laugh
I'm so DOLO*

Out in cold
class never ends!
ten to ten!
That's nine-fifty really
Ahhhh, alone

Playing guitar
and brother; "what's that noise?"
I HATE BOYS!
They get the breaks
forgiven mistakes


Life's not a sin
forgiven within
God hates me though
I pray every day

Nothing changes.


*Spanglish word meaning both 'dumb' and 'alone'

Gail, wow, you did an excellent job on this! Every single person still remembers bits and pieces of those days - the good ones, the bad ones and Lord knows the ugly ones! You said it well!

What a fantastic write Gail, I loves the syntax and
rhyme, of course the story is what I get most
out of any poem and there's plenty of
meaning here, school bullies, school rivalry
you've coveted it all!!

Well done:)

You have covered all the emotions and idiosyncrasies of those who didn't like school. Stanza 7 reminds me of a sign put under the classroom clock for me. " Time passes will you?" Nice write I like it

    Thank you raw! I appreciate you sharing that memory, one that almost everyone can identify with! Humiliating others was a major part of the power and control games played in HS , even for some of the teachers (not you Varivas, and HSTeech!!!) Let's never go back there! Gail

    A lot of people were the nerds! Kids are so self-absorbed that they usually fail to realize that most kids have the same issues that they do! Sucks to be young, at that age...

G'day Gail...
It's really the good old days isn't it. Brought back a lot of memories of the power struggle.
Thanks Gail.

    Hahaha! Is that a bit of sarcasm on your part? haha! never saw that side of you! Thye OTHER side of Lindsay! Yes, the HAPPPY DAYS of high school with their fun dates, and dances and parties only exist of about 3% of the class, usually based on looks only! And for girls, lots of smiling! For guys, lots of physical strentgh. And laughing at boys jokes and being mean to those who are weaker than you! And as racist as possible. Oh, dear, I am tired of talking about it...
