I Say

A creative piece

I Say
Jakin and Raeka Lin

They said work hard and you will achieve your goals,

But my goals seem so far away

They said don't grow up too fast, but they took my innocence away

They said you're too quiet, so I spoke up

But what I said seemed to be forgotten so easily

They said smile, so I did

They said be happy, so I made others laugh

They said life is too short, so I lived to the fullest

They said everything will be fine, but they don't know that

They promised happy endings, but we continue to seek happiness

I say, it's not so bad

They said it was easy. But it wasn't.

They asked what's wrong, but I didn't know how to answer.

They said I love you, but they hurt me.

They said sorry, and I said it's okay.

But it isn't

They said I will always be there for you, but now they aren't here.

They said be independent, but I don't want to live without you.

I tell myself I am strong.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
