"Beauty Part 3"

And when I was in the 5th grade
I wrote a suicide note…
It was the first time someone believed in my writing
 
In the 4th grade
My valentine said I couldn’t be seen with her
Because my classmates would actually think she liked me
 
In the 3rd grade I ate lunch by myself EVERYDAY
 
In the 2nd grade
A 5th grader punched me in the mouth at the end of recess
Knocked two of my teeth to the pavement
I laid crying on the ground blood spilling down my lips for 15 minutes before anyone asked if I was okay
 
In the first grade
A white girl at snack time told me my skin looked like I never took a shower
She’s never seen something so BLACK
 
In kindergarten I was the only student who stood awake during nap time
Feeling alone isn’t foreign to me
