The Other Me

I didn’t do it
It was the other me
The one who says
Skipping class is fine
As she head out the back door
With her unctuous friends
Black eyeliner, ripped jeans, tattoos
I didn’t do it
It was the other me
I was sitting at home
Doing my history homework
Minding my own business
While the other me was out
Drinking, smoking, stealing
I didn’t do it
It was the other me
The one who lies to my parents
When she says she’s with a friend
When really she’s in the back of a car
With a boy
She smiles knowing I would never
Have the nerve to be her
I didn’t do it
It was the other me
I tried to tell her not to
But her voice was louder in my head
I lost control of her
It was too late
I didn’t do it
It was the other me
