I tell my mom I want a pet.
My mom tells me no.
I tell her I’m unhappy.
She tells me to keep busy.
I challenge her to send me to school.
She accepts and says to go.
I remind her that we don’t have money.
She reminds me of my aunt.
I remind her that my aunt just spent everything on her kid’s wedding.
She reassures me my aunt has a lot more.
I tell her I don’t have the certainty to repay it all back.
She tells me I don’t have to.
I tell her I’m gonna need a car to get to school.
She tells me to get a thousand dollar used car.
I tell her I need to go through driving school too.
She tells me I don’t need to.
Was my dream coming true really this easy.
I still want a pet though.
