"Teenagers only have to focus on themselves - its not until we get older that we realize that other people exist."- Jennifer Lawrence

I walk through this hall

Scanning faces, saying words I don't actually hear. 

My legs keep moving 

And i'm not sure how. 

All I want to do is stop 

I want to stop and crawl into the cracks in the floor

But I keep walking.

I reach my destination 

And all I want to do is walk out 

And sob. 

I want to cry as hard as I ever have. 

I want to feel my body shake with each tear
