There was a time when I was thought to be a prodigy.
The constant questions asking what I could be.
But being a child prodigy isn't all its cracked up to be.
All those applications for scholarships and academic events are very time-consuming.
You go from being a child to be expected to be a genius.
And there's nothing to prepare you for the beating you didn't know was coming.
All those dreams and aspirations?
Taken away without a second chance at recovery.
You look back hoping that you may fix this shit.
But find out that in reality none of it is worth it.
Unless you're a genius,
You'll just fade back into society like you never meant anything.
Just accept that you're more normal than you thought.
And maybe you'll be given something that's not for naught
