A Homeschool Student Part 1

In a past post I have criticized the apathetic home-schooled teenagers, but I guess I should make it known that I was home-schooled for most of my life, too. I guess I just wanted to share my perspective about the stereotypes placed on me as a former home-schooler and how hurtful they are…

Fall came

     tore the summer of my innocence away

a flow of energy

 a rush of darkness

bells ringing

halls buzzing






The unknown

the fear

held me back

distracted me

their laughing faces

their pointing fingers

“because she was home-schooled-“

“freak show girl”

And so I sit in class

and look outside, longing,

and draw that one barren tree
