A Message Through Text
Garrett Hill

Ding! I received a message through text the other day

My dad had just left for the week due to work

“I’m going out boys behave!”

Was all we heard from the other side
 

She got home acting different

Told us she was somewhere she wasn’t

Caught her in a lie, why must we discuss it

Things are going to change.
 

We must not discuss it because our generation feels comfortable

Comfortable through texting, instead of in person

But oh well, we still caught her in a lie

A lie about something that changed our lives forever.
