The realist shit I’ve read in a while.
Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.
Do NOT insult people for dropping out.
Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure.
You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.

I’m listening to The National.
I’m laying on the bed with the windows open, hearing the Cincinnati trains zip by at all hours of the night.
I’m opening handwritten letters.
We’re fighting, you’re not giving in, and I’m playing fireproof over and over trying to understand how you can be so closed off.
I’m laying on your bed, it’s raining outside and I’m waiting for you to get out of school.
I’m on a layover in a city I’ve never been to going home to my life without you.
