Do you know how annoying it is
to be told what to do?
I'm OK with my parents,
my teachers,
my superiors.
But the people who think
they know better than you...
I just want to scream
in their faces,
and sometimes,
I do.
If their logic makes sense,
and their reasoning is reasonable-
then I'll take in what they say;
I'll consider it.
But when it's just insults
against someone
or...
logical fallacies,
they better get away from me,
because it's not their place.
Just because
they're a lil'bit older than me,
or have a lil'bit more experience,
does not make them better than me.
They don't know
everything going on,
they aren't the ones
to handle the consequences.
They can talk about me
as if I'm not there,
I don't care.
Being a Freshmen,
doesn't make me a baby:
I'm a lot more mature,
than some of them will ever be.


The author's comments:
I was mad when I wrote this and upset. I hate it when upper-class-men think they have an upper-hand on you bc they're older. I've always bucked against it; and when they don't realize what grade I'm in, they talk about how 'little' Freshmen need to learn their place- they ask me for advice- they talk to me like anyone else.. and when they find out what grade I'm in.. they're speechless. Lets make a promise to not be like them.
