Remember

Chapter 1

Remember

remember when everything was okay?
nothing haunted our souls into thinking that we weren't good enough
the stares of others' intimidating eyes was a compliment
we would simply breeze through our daily routine as nothing mattered - nothing should

everything around us seemed equal enough that our brains forgot dilemmas and we'd actually get sleep through the night
there was no contemplating whether or not we should continue with life, as we actually enjoyed it thoroughly
no one cared about the looks of the other 4-9 year-olds
no one bothered with anyone's taste in music

remember when everyone was all and the same
everyone had their favourites, their qualities, their weaknesses, their unappealing parts of their life
but none of that mattered
friendships were loving, kind, simple, beautiful and pure

5th grade hit. i was almost 10.

i started caring more about anything and everything;
looks
weight
friends
qualities
weight
personalities
fitness
weight

nothing that should have mattered, did
the brutality in my soul that ate away at my dignity was basically unbearable

6th and 7th grade grew worse
all of my feelings were packed up into a bottle and shaken continuously like a bottle of soda

people thought it was fun to slowly twist it until the cap flew off half way through the 8th grade

mistakes
memories
feelings
3 new enemies
3 new battles
1 new person that took over my body and mind, completely having control over me like an erupting volcano has control over an unaware village
disaster
complete disaster


now i just want to remember when society's thoughts DIDN'T matter
