We Are Teenage Girls

by Aradhna aged 11

When we go home
our straight hair goes up in messy buns
our make-up has faded, we can take it off
the fake smile vanishes into how we really feel
our brand new shirt changes into favorite old sweaters
our skinny jeans are traded for sweat pants or pajamas
our uggs are taken off to reveal our fuzzy socks
when we come home…
you couldn’t recognize us
