~Review? Feedback?~

Why I came today
_ _ I do not know
There is no point
_ _ no purpose
The classes today...
_ _ What is the point?
Review?
_ _ I can do so at home
Feedback?
_ _ I know what I'm like
_ _ Some teachers misunderstand
At school,
_ _ I feel like nothing
_ _ like I don't care
_ _ like I don't exist
_ _ like there's no point
not that I don't want to care,
but I've ceased to see the purpose
I cannot be free
I cannot be myself
I feel like I must hide
_ _ and deal with things
_ _ _ _ alone...
People - peers - they are afraid of emotion
_ _ Afraid to lose their hold
_ _ Afraid to let go
_ _ _ _ of material things
_ _ _ _ of being 'smart'
_ _ _ _ of petty things
_ _ they are afraid
_ _ _ _ of being themselves
_ _ they appear
_ _ _ _ almost as robots
_ _ _ _ _ _ but,
_ _ hidden beneath each fa├žade
_ _ _ _ is a real person.
