But It’s Not a Matter of Deserving (#53: January 11, 2014)
It’s like if you just landed on an alien planet populated by pugs and the locals have come out to greet you.
SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

FOR ONE: IVE NEVER DONE HOMEWORK IN MY LIFE CAUSE I DONT BELIEVE IN THAT CRAP AND I MAKE PRETTY GOOD GRADES AND TWO: WE SPEND FUCKING 8 HOURS IN SCHOOL AS IT IS SO WHY THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO GO HOME AND DO MORE SCHOOL
I want spring. Want winter to diminish and leave all it’s loneliness behind.
I want fresh starts and forehead kisses,
& I think I want to feel something other than regret.
the fact that i have to choose between my grades and my own mental and physical health is really fucked up
is never good poetry,
unrequited love poetry,
complicated friendship poetry,
coffee breath kisses in the morning poetry,
pick-pocketed glances poetry,
2 a.m. whispered conversations poetry,
8 a.m. walks to the bus stop poetry,
oblivious to love poetry
