Add wasn’t a bad lad. It was other people that made him feel sad. Add was creative & funny. But they made him feel crummy. He had to apologize for how he felt. For the cards he’d been dealt. They made him feel stupid & weird. It was worse than he had feared. Just because he was unique. Doesn’t mean his future is bleak. They have no right to shriek. Look at him like he’s weak. Make him scared to speak. Call him names like freak. Yell at him seventy-two times a week. Will they finally treat him with respect? Or will he end up wrecked?
