um yeah...."Oh my god that's her."um yeah....5 years ago in Other More Like This
the whispers echo through the hallways
I sigh and walk to my class
the teacher stares at me, a silver cross
dangles from her neck
religious phrases paint her wall
I sit in my seat and keep my head low
my classmates stare and whisper
I try and tune them out but one comment
catches my attention
a small girl
a frail little angel
she's scowling at her friends
they are scowling back
I clench my fists and close my eyes
my cheeks sting as tears fall
that little girl
that little girl in the back row
she glances down
her cheeks are red
her friends scowl and whisper to her
she whispers back
"how could you say that?"
I barely hear her timid voice as she speaks for
thousands of people
"she's a person, so are you.
Love is not something to be controlled
So stop trying to control it
and give them a chance.
Love is blind and you should be too."
