Stigma

By Sarah

Crazy.
Emo.
Disrespectful.
Lazy.

Shot like paintballs. The words spread, the hits bruise and they say it’s all in fun.

Unreliable.
Unreasonable.
Untenable.
Undesired.

Labels. Stuck with glue, sticking where they are not wanted, where they block our paths.

Needy.
Attention Seeking.
Selfish.
Moody.

Friends and classmates jump on the wagon. The wheels keep rolling and rolling, plowing over anything in their path, picking up speed.

Think.
Question.
Learn.
Act.

There are Brakes. Glue is not Permanent. Paint can be Wiped Away.
