Didn't understandMature

When I was four
I started school
and went from
a chaotic environment
to quiet and controlled
I didn't understand
why other kids
didn't flinch
when someone came closer
or cower
when someone raised their voice
or why no-one else
wore bruises or cuts
on their bodies
why no-one else
wore fear in their eyes
why it was so calm
and not threatening
I didn't understand
all the differences
but that was okay
it gave me hope
of a better world
I could explore
more importantly
out of all of that
it gave me hope
of escaping

The End
