Favorite Quote:
I've never let school interfere with my education. -Mark Twain

They know me by a name
The first one
But I only use it here
They know me by my silence
I'm quiet
But I'm only quiet here
They know me by the grades I get
The high ones
But they don't know I don't care
They know me by my refusals
Of invitations (always polite)
But they don't know why
They know me by the clothes
I wear
But they don't know I'm more
They know me by ignoring me
I am simple
They say
Oh, but they don't know
