I don’t belong here.

These four words,

Echoing through my mind.

You shouldn’t be here.

I’m panicking, my heart racing

Like it’s trying to escape,

To leave while there’s still time.

The people I pass

All seem so big,

Staring at me

Like I’m an imposter.

I’m too small, too young,

Too lost, too dumb.

I don’t fit in

Among all these adults.

A little girl like me,

Not yet sixteen,

Going to college?

Absurd! Ridiculous!

But there I am,

Blindly stumbing

Through the halls.
