The end

of Forever

The end of forever

My mother once told me fear will eat you away...and it's true. People will never stop fearing things. Fear is a mystery, that nobody gets. This world...this planet, is all a mystery. And I like it that way...

My friends tell me I'm stupid. My mom tells me I'm special. My brother tells me I'm weird. My dad tells me I'm different. I tell myself I'm crazy...and it's true.

I can't read. I can't write. I can't listen. I can't learn easily. I can't cook. I can't hold my anger. I can draw. I draw all day, everyday. My pictures talk to me. People who see my pictures doubt I drew them. But I did. I can draw. I will.

I always dread the first day of school. People see me and start to be my friend, then when they find out the real me, I'm alone again. Tomorrow is the first day of school. I'm not ready. I never will be! Why can't my mom see my pain? She's a teacher but she won't home school me! I will never understand her, she will never understand me.

I couldn't sleep at all. I tossed and turned in fear. I don't care what my mother says! Let the fear eat me! Let me go and rot! Nothing is worse than what I go through every day. How can this world...This town...this so horrible?
