To make this all go away. And disappear.
I know that’s wrong, because it’s my responsibility, and I know things have to get worse before they get better.
I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they’re here. If they like their jobs. Or us. I wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen. Not in a mean way. In a curious way. It’s like looking at all the students and wondering who’s had their heart broken that day. And how they cope with having three quizes and a book report. On top of that.
Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why. Especially since I know that if they went to another school, the person who had their heart broken would have had their heart broken by somebody else, so why does it have to be personal?
It’s much easier to not know things sometimes.
Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody.
You can’t just sit their and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love.
You just can’t. You have to do things. I’m going to do what I want to do.
I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is.
And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. I don’t know. I guess there could always be someone to blame.
It’s just different.
Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite.
