High school is a foreign world.
We all live here
as if we’ve been raised here.
But don’t get fooled
by the smiles that you share,
you are not indigenous here.

Your day may seem well,
and your troubles may seem rare
but behind that two way window
is the other side…
One that’s not so green.

We’ve all been told
life’s not fair
so why do we expect
more than should be expected?

We’re just optimists
in a world where

in the end

the glass must
be cleaned.
