I feel like the planet is an unfriendly place, like you have to fight to survive in this world.
Like everywhere you go, you get judged. Like you are constantly fighting off discrimination. Like you are always having to defend your tiny space on the planet, your tiny right to exist.
Is this the way it is for everyone?
When I was a kid, I was told that kids had to shut up and that children were to be seen and not heard. When I tried to speak out against the adults, who were much bigger and more powerful than me, I was squelched.
When do you get to grow up?
