They don’t tell you

That you will think you’re

Brave enough

To conquer your

First day

Of school without

Your mother.

That is, until

Your sitting alone

With no friends.


You will most

Definitely get hurt

On the playground

At least

Once,

But thats when

You push through

And show you are

Tough.


What they don't

Tell you

Is that you

Won't get it

On the first try.

But then you

Keep trying

Anyways.

 

 

 

 


They don't tell you

That you'll form

What you think

Will be a

Friendship

For life.

Only to watch

It become

Dust

When you get

To highschool.


You’ll see

Cute guys that

You will

Fall for.

Just to be

Hurt in

The end.


What they

Don’t tell you

Is that boys

Can be very

Persuasive,

Bring you out

Of your

Shell,

And ruin your

Reputation

At school

Just because

They made

You feel

“Loved.”

 

They don't

Tell you

That people

Won't always agree

With how you

Choose to be

YOU.

But they also

Don't tell you

That in the end,

What people

Said or

Thought

Doesn’t matter.


What they don't

Tell you is

That all those

Times spent

In the bathrooms

Crying over

Friend, boys,

Grades, or

Anything is

Okay.

It'll all be

Okay.


They don't

Tell you

That no matter

How bad your

Grades get,

There is still

Hope.


There is

One thing

That they did

Tell you:

School is just

For education.


But what they

Didn't tell you

Was that they

Lied.

School is so

Much more.

Your biggest

Weaknesses

Are discovered.

As well as your

Strong points.

You learn the

Difference

Between real

And fake.  

You learn

A lot.


Oh, the things

They don’t

Tell you about

School.
