Dear Mom

Dear Mom,

I can't stand people lately. I can't relate to them. Never could. You say that things will be better at The Faith and Discovery School, and that there will be more people like me. But I don't really believe those notions anymore, or at least not the latter. People are people, and that's that. Sorry, but it's true.

Don't get me wrong--I know you're not lying to me on purpose. You're just a bit misled. I am excited for high school--but I'm wise enough to know that there is no such thing as the perfect educational institution.

Furthermore, on the rare occasions when I do have the privilege of meeting someone like me, they fulfill my purpose quite well, thank you very much. Their minds (if not their hearts) are too full for the presence of another sage.

And in the end, it doesn't really matter whose soul I've touched and whose I haven't--because most people can't truly feel anything at all.

Never could.


Your daughter 

The End
