Why are words so hard to come by? I remember being young and staring at stickers that glowed green within the darkness - I remember staring at them constantly, feeling words I did not know because I was eight and dumb. I remember meeting a boy with dark corn-rowed hair and wondering why I was so mean even though I liked him. I remember seeing a girl in my class and hating her guts almost instantly because she was tan and blonde and I sat in the back of class looking ashen and pallid. For so many years I did not know the words for any of these things - these feelings, and now that I am old and all opportunities have passed me by I still only understand a little of what I am trying so desperately to say.

***MINI RANT*** If I did something to hurt you or offend you, then come and talk to me about it. Don't just do everything you can to make me feel like crap. I understand that you thought I was being serious when I said I was glad that you were moving out but I was smiling and laughing when I said that and you were laughing as well. So how about instead of faking a smile and going along with it you say something to me. You're 15 years older than me. Act it. Don't do everything in your power to try and hurt my feelings. Because of you, I now don't want to leave my room or talk to anyone in this house. So thank you VERY much.
Lollipops turn into cigarettes. The innocent ones turn into slu.ts. Homework goes in the trash. Mobile phones are being used in class. Detention becomes suspension. Soda becomes vodka. Bikes become cars. Kisses turn into se.x. Remember when getting high meant swinging on the playground? When protection meant wearing a helmet? When the worst things you could get from boys were cooties? Dad’s shoulders were the highest place on earth and mum was your hero? Your worst enemies were your siblings. Race issues were about who ran the fastest. War was only a card game. And the only drug you knew was cough medicine. When wearing a skirt didn’t make you a slu.t. The most pain you felt was when you skinned your knees, and goodbyes only meant until tomorrow? And we couldn’t wait to grow up.
