High School, we are expected to go here for 4 years. The real question is why do we dread going to school everyday? We’re supposed to enjoy learning and it’s sure not supposed to be something that teenagers dread. The sad part is that school is not about learning. At all. School tests students memory instead of their intelligence. School isn’t about learning information that someone could use for the rest of their life. All school is about is getting a good grade on a test where the information was read to them off a powerpoint or word doc. Students feel pressured to remember worthless information, make a good grade on a test, graduate HS, only to get into college to start the rest of their lives. Students can pass at est but have no real life skills. We go here from August to June for 7 hours 5 days a week. And I can guarantee none of us are going to remember any of the stupid crap that was drilled into our brains. And then adults wonder why we dread going to school. It’s because our school and education system is so flawed and messed up.

I don’t think you understand that you can literally rip my heart out and stomp on it and I’ll apologize for getting your shoes dirty.

To anyone who ever put
doubt on my lap,

hopeless thoughts
in my mind,

past mistakes
in my hands

and regret
in my eyes,

I want you
to remember
that you did not
succeed in trying
to ruin me.
