you learn a lot in high school.
you learn about heart breaks,
you learn about losing friends.
you take your first sip of alcohol,
you might even smoke your first cigarette.
you’ll go to your first party and get wasted.
you might even get a car.
people show you how unreliable they are,
how easily they could leave.
you learn to be alone,
how to live with your thoughts,
how to force yourself to stay strong,
how to stay mentally stable.
you learn a lot in high school,
but i will never understand the phrase
” the best four years of your life,”
because it honestly has been absolute hell
and i cannot wait to leave..
