they played that game with me, too
I acted tough and fought back, but when I was alone in the privacy of my own home that's when the tears would come. My form of relief came with a razor blade. My experiences with people in h.s. taught me that some people are just downright cruel. If it weren't for all the misery I felt in h.s., I might have graduated. I will never forget the pain I felt in those teenage years. Thank God they're over. Thank you so much for your poem. Please keep posting, I enjoy your work.
