A Homeschool Student Part 2

Winter came

cold seeped into the autumn of my fear

energy dies

relinquishing the battle

settling for less

No longer the unknown

no longer the feared

now just the pain

now just the cold

not just the darkness

Gone all day

never seeing the light of the sun

gray

snow

cold

still they laugh

still the point

still they slowly kill me

“because she was home-schooled-“

“that’s why she’s smart”

And so I still sit in class,

and look outside, longing,

and draw that one barren tree
