Exclude Exclusion

My best friend is my mom
We nap together, play together, and she always makes me smile
She picks me up when I cry
We are together almost 24/7
She loves me unconditionally
I am six months old

My best friend is my brother
We love to go to the park
We swing, we laugh, and we run around
We wear old clothes to get dirty
We don’t care how each other act
We are five years old

My best friend’s name is Lindsay
We go to school together
We are always getting in trouble for talking
After school we hang out and sometimes collect caterpillars
We wear clothes that can get dirty outside
We are nine years old

My best friend’s name is Reanna
Our friend is the only boy that’s friends with girls and not afraid to be
We play tag, swing, and play four square
We don’t judge each other on what we wear or say
We hang out and money doesn’t matter
We are thirteen years old

My best friend is Dan
We help each other through everything
We see people being excluded for being “different”
We love each other for who we are inside
We don’t care what the other’s house looks like
We are in high school

That was my transition from being a baby high school
When you are little, when it comes to friends
It’s the person you have fun with and can laugh with
When you get older, people start to judge
Clothes, money, gender, and other things
Shouldn’t affect who someone is

I choose the friends that care about me for who I am,
Without money or a big fancy house.
I choose my friends by how they treat me.
High school is drama and if you look around,
You will see exclusion and possibly experience it.
High school is a battle, fight to be you!
