I've been through so many schools,

I must have missed the lesson

where they taught us how to make friends

Who would have thought state education

could be so (in)valuable?

-

The playground taught me how to be numb

(we played best friends but I didn't have one)

my mouth was filled with curse words

that would splinter a hole I could (please?) fall into

-

It's funny because I found familiarity

and for a while I almost belonged

but I was torn from the

only place I could call home

and thrown into this hell
