MisEducation Dreamed 4759 days ago | | 115 words

you’ve been miseducated for years
twelve long grades of fear
ever letting yourself hear
the praise raining far and near

never wanted to be the pretty one
always left the same
never helped yourself to all you had
all you deserved all you needed
locked up. reserve.

wasted away a thousand lies
a million lifetimes
your eyes died
sucked dry from crying
so many times

your last breath
anyone would ever hear
come as you leaped
following a single tear

down fast
downward at last

it’s over it’s done
no more pain no more fun
no more bullies no more run
no more work
no more play
no more uncertain
all the same
no more education
graduation is here.
