Save your pity-
I never thought I'd amount to writing anything. The fellows in school knew how to do it, they could work the words quite well.
My understanding of anything was complete shit.
I couldn't tell you about the paragraph I just read, I was too busy focusing on reading the words correctly.
It didn't matter because I was going to be a rock star- music is what really mattered.
Sometimes I could pull something of use out of my ass and impress the teachers, even myself.
I envied a lot of my intelligent friends, they knew how to do it all. I thought they'd amount to something great for sure. I was stuck with the helpless few that wouldn't make anything of themselves in life. But for some reason they believed in me, said I was special, I'd do great things, I was creative in my own way.
They probably told that to every child they knew wasn't going to go anywhere.
