Are You Laughing Yet?

You know her
That girl who sits alone
In class
At Lunch
She's the one who cries
For her life is too miserable
Too miserable to bear
Yet, everyone seems to pass her by
Without a second glance
Are you laughing yet?

He is there- hidden to the normal eye
You know him
The one with the heavy eyeliner
You call him a f**
I call him a friend
You tell him to go back to Freaksville
I tell him to reside in me, learn to trust your own kind
All this because we are different
Different from the rest
Are You Laughing Yet?

You go to Aeropostal, H&M, and Abercormbie
As you laugh at them
The girls with the slit wrists,
The boys with the lonely eyes
They go into the stores that you do not dare
Yet, you ignore them
And become friends with the sluts
The ones who have been around “one too many times”
With her collagen puffed lips and implanted breasts
Are You Laughing Yet?

Are You Laughing Yet?
Because, I’m not
People look down on me
“Look at the punk girl, she’s a poser, and attention needer”
Im not
True to the core Punk Rockers & Emos untie
Learn to stand together
And fight for your rights

What wonderful insight from one so young. To be able to see the world for what it is and express how it affects you so dramatically. Well done.
