Distracted from school because my mother got a new boyfriend and they fight all night. He yells and screams at me. He drinks more beer and then he knocks himself out to sleep. Sleeping lightly so I can hear if they are fighting again. I don’t want anything to happen to my momma again. The alarm clock rings at 7 am and I’m tired. Forcing myself out of bed because I got to get on my bus. I check my notifications and see that my best friend is getting exposed on Instagram. Losing my mind, I forgot to grab my backpack before leaving the house. Get to school unprepared because I was distracted this morning. I step foot on campus and already drama is starting. I get to class and my teacher yells at me because I’m unprepared for class. She embarrasses me in front of the whole class saying that I’m irresponsible and that I have to grow up. My teacher doesn’t know me. She doesn’t know that I have to care for my younger siblings and watch out for my momma. She doesn’t know that I have to watch my back because these 8th graders trying to jump me. Now she lost my respect. #StoriesInAStudentShoes #IMissStorytimein410 #ForMyHealing
