I just thought you should know what I’m doing now.
I am a strong person
A disciplined person
A fun person
Who spends a lot of time hanging out, watching TV, and going places – going shopping, going new places.
I just thought you should know how I’m feeling.
I am nervous
I am unhappy
I am confused
Confused about everything, about this place, about these buildings
Because … life.
I just thought you should know what I’ve been through.
In the last month, I have changed so much.
Change that is black.
Black that is depressing.
Change that hurts like fire.
What happened is this:
The first thing was moving to a new place.
The second thing was experiencing change.
And the third, the third thing was understanding.
Moving, changing, understanding.
I just thought you should know what I wish for the future.
I hope for a better future.
The future looks like this:
Better education – a better school
A house – I really want a house
Those two things will make me a better person.
I just thought you should know
That I have grown from who I used to be.
Grown like a cheetah.
And this is what I thought you should know.
