I can remember being in junior high,
there was a girl,
her name was Molly.
Molly was cute, with brown hair and freckled skin.
Yours truly had a crush on her.
One day after school,
there she was at her locker…
So, something sprung up inside me “I should ask her out”.
And so I did.
And she told me, without even looking at me. “I have a boyfriend, but you’ll be the first to know.”
At first I was crushed, but when she said you’ll be the first to know there was a sense a hope. Maybe she would come around I thought.
But as time went on, nothing changed.
The lesson was, don’t allow yourself to be someone else back up plan. Have the fortitude and respect for yourself to know that you deserve better. And find someone that actually wants to be with you.
