"dont let education get in your way of learning" -my American Lit teacher

So many times I’ve been told I’m loved.
I’m an angel sent from God above.
I’m the reason why you stick around
And today, Oh today is not the same at all

I found a letter on my bed
It said “I’d rather be alone instead”
No sadness or anger came from my soul
But I would have liked it best if I would have known
Love, an excuse to make someone smile,
Someone feel appreciated for a while
An escape of trouble a short cut out
Of what you are really about

I found out how much you “really” loved me as much as you said
All it took was a letter on top of my bed
And I don’t believe it I won’t believe it ever again
