You don't know me, but I know you

I sit in the back of the room, hoping for a glance. That one, single, glance.

Nope, I pass by you everyday in the halls and say "Hey"

You just stare ahead and walk

I may have stalked your facebook. I may have spontaneously looked on the instagram you created precisely 2 years ago.

I saw you like blinde girls? Done

You like skinny ones to? I better hot the gym

That girl with long wavy hair? Check


I finally got your attention

We started talking

I felt like I was in cloud 9

I now realize you were into me because of my looks


I cut my hair, you didn't notice

I put my Star-Wars shirt on proudly this morning, You stared ahead.

I now know the real you

Now I teach young woman, about boys like you.

The author's comments:

I have been hurt and through so much with boys. Just this year I told myself to quit and I did. I took time to get to know myself and I told girls they could do the same. I spoke at a youth convention at only being 16. I inspired the entire aduience.
