Ill never forget how it felt to stand outside the doors of my elementary school The first day it was like walking towards the edge of the cliff my heart pounded against my rib cage so hard my ears would ring my hands shaking so badly I wished I had no hands All the while my feet carried me closer and closer to my doom Those twelve feet from my mothers black Honda to those bright red doors could have easily matched the march to Calvary I would look back at my mother hoping she could see my trembling hands or hear my screaming heart I needed her to know how scared I was how badly I didnt want to go through those doors But she didnt and so I marched on How was she supposed to know that everyone hated me That I had no friends and school brought me no joyI thought they were just like me the kids I went to school with but for some reason they didnt see it that way Maybe it was because when I walked through the halls my head looked over all of theirs Or maybe it was because my accent was too thick or my skin was too dark Either way I was different to them and when youre considered different all you want is to be like everyone else So I had no choice but to lieThere were some kids everyone knew to avoid and then there were those everyone gravitated to like Anna-Beth Her bright blue eyes Shirley Temple styled hair made her at age ten the respective queen of our school She was so nice to everyone so Im not sure what possessed her to grab those scissors during our world history class and snip off my ponytail All I knew was that my first reaction after crying was to lie I lied to our teacher and told her I asked Anna-Beth
