And oh, have I changed.
Still the Same
I sling my backpack over my shoulder, ready to start a new day.
Well, not so ready. I wanted to be someone different, something new. I didn’t tell anyone. Not that there was anyone to tell, other than my family, but they’d freak out.
I was a girl. Was being the key word. Because inside, I wanted to be a boy. I wanted to hang out and talk with the boys. Sure, it was the middle of the school year, but a fresh new change is a fresh new change.
I am a boy.
That was what I told myself. I lied to myself that I would be strong and show the world a piece of my mind. I lied to myself and said that everything would be okay. Everything would turn my way in the end.
That day, the girls were glad to be rid of me. They hated me for who I was.
That day, the boys hated me more. What was I doing, trying to join their league?
They would ask, “Do you know what you’re doing?” And I would keep oh, so silent.
The thoughts in my mind kept spitting out “Yes! Of course!” but my gut told me no. No, I didn’t know what I was doing. And whatever I was doing, I was going to end up in trouble. I made a decision that broke me from the girls, only to not be accepted by the boys.
I was a no one.
I am still a no one.
But that may just be about to change.
