My friends and I started the first day of kindergarten with sweaty







My friends and I started the first day of kindergarten
with sweaty palms and runs in our tights
and Dillon got bashful when he saw me get on the bus
and hid his head in the seat.
And Michelle and I played dress up for hours in her mother's closet
talking about what it would be like to act like

the big kids.

My friends and I started the first day of middle school
with sweaty palms and new jeans
and Dillon and I kissed under the jungle gym last year
but he liked another girl more than me.
And Michelle kissed all of her big brother's friends
and tried to be just like

the big kids.

My friends and I started the first day of high school
with sweaty palms and big text books
and Dillon has been dating Hannah for two months
and gives me look in the hallway.
And it seems like Michelle has been trying to play dress up in her
mother's closet again
and all the boys look at her and she loves it
and it seems like no one will take you seriously unless

you're a big kid.

My friends and I said goodbye on the last day of Senior Year
with fond memories and our graduation caps
and Dillon took his own life last year
because Hannah forgot they were dating for a night.
And Michelle stays home mostly now
because her baby needs her more than she needs her degree
and it scares me now
because we are

the big kids.

I love this. It's kinda like a shorter version from the poem from The perks of Being A Wallflower.
