Old habits
ultimately die hard.
People think I've grown,
but I still do the things I did
at a younger age.
I give other students the answers,
let them copy my papers like my life depends on it,
spend more time taking photos of my homework
than actually doing it.
All because
I want them to like me.
Maybe if I give my intelligence away,
my answers,
myself,
they'll like me.
I just want to be liked.
Old habits,
like being the lost little girl
giving out answers in exchange
for a chance at a smile,
ultimately die hard.
