13 sucks, 8 was cool

October 5, 2021

PROMPT: [Insert Age]

when i was 8 i so wanted to be older
thinking middle school was paradise
with lockers, classes, and work
i wanted to be smart now as i was the
and expected all the same
but now at 13 i can't even face my grades

when i was 8 i so wanted to be older
with friends and hangouts everyday
because then i would be allowed
to play tag, hide and seek, all foolish games from back then
when i played with dozens of people
now being alone is normal

when i was 8 i so wanted to be older
promised to never make my parents mad 
like my sister did before
doing my kiddie-kiddie chores filled me with pride
and i loved seeing the smiles on their faces
now they and i both avoid embraces

when i was 8 i so wanted to be older
i thought life would be great and i would have more freedom
that a smile would be a guarantee
and it would all just be
a blast, a party, no querells or fears left anymore
but now at 13 im dead and lost
i failed myself at 8

ok wow wow this is the worst piece ive ever written but like it felt good to write it

    Two points:
    1. NOT THE WORST PIECE YOU'VE EVER WRITTEN! This is better then ALL of my work, and is just as good as all of your work that I've read (which is not a lot, I admit, but still)! This is so great and I really love it.
    2. What are the chances! I said this to my dad not last night! Being 13 sucks. When I was eight, all I wanted to be was a teen, but now, the "magic" has worn off, or, more so, the appeal. So yeah. You're not alone. :)

    Re: Omgoodness thank you so much! That is literally the highest compliment I could receive. :) I'll totally letcha know when I post chapter two. And really, you haven't met any other Fablehaven fans? 3 of my BFFs and I are all huge Brandon Mull fans. Two of them are actually on WtW, BriRiley and MillieBunn. And Anne of Green Gables, love those books too! Have you read them all? My fave is the last one, Rilla of Ingleside.
