Working hard to be best,
Donkey, overworked, no rest,
No bruises, blood or lies
No screaming, hurting cries.
How did you manage?
Weight of the world, carried it yourself,
You still do, nobody believes us,
But it’s true.
Homeless, no food, abandoned,
Fuck society, why should we care?
Too young when it happened,
It wasn’t even fair.
Still branded, insecure,
No man, you survived,
You wounded stereotypes
We’ve only just arrived.

So I went to see the movie: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower & read the book! Initially I was going to wait until I posted about this movie/novel because I wanted to have a decisive opinion on whether I would enjoy the movie/novel as much or not without the hype surrounding it.
As mentioned in one of my previous posts, my opinion of the Twilight series isn’t very high. The writing style I must admit very flatly that my 13 year old sister could do a better job of. The plot is anything but original and frankly it’s awful. I say this with no remorse, and only the deepest manners bestowed within me keep me from using much meatier words than ‘awful’ to describe this series.
Since this is the first year of my life growing up that there will be no Harry Potter movie or book released I thought it was all over for me. After J.K.Rowlings wonderful, cleverly constructed world of Wizards & Witches, on flying broomsticks, wands and spells – I thought it was all over.
