I am fourteen

and my skin is pale

the boy I live to see

every day has a smile

that brightens it

I don’t go to class

what if I don’t graduate

mom has a problem

with the school district.

I am fourteen

and I’ve danced forever

but parties are not my thing

I need an education

to get a job

suppose I don’t graduate

mom has a problem

with the school district.

I am fourteen

and how the battle affects me

its hard to explain

It’s done with my interests

in mind

But mom has a problem

with the school district.
