Unshared Story

On the week-end when no one was looking
You were so nice to me
But back to school Monday, held things more important
Like popularity

We lived on the north side
And I assumed that was why
You gave yourself a license
To laugh; I tried not to cry

Age and time bestow maturity
We move past the resentment and pain
I saw you yesterday; and instantly
I knew that scars remain…

  4. ...without a doubt, and also, if we walked a mile in their shoes...those who seek to make others feel insecure are so insecure...this we realize, looking back.
