Remember how you begged to play?
You practiced and worked so hard,
Remember how disappointed you were
When they laughed you out of the yard?
You thought there was something wrong with you,
You bravely asked what it was?,
As if you were a child,
Those cowards said....
Did they think that would make you fall?
It took no time,
No one ever asked them, “why”?
They don’t even know the function!
A subordinating grammatical conjunction!
Without a sentence,
Without a reason,
You were supposed to stop and believe them,
Believe what fools can hardly say,
But you knew all along,
There was nothing the matter with you
They were completely wrong
