    That’s when I knew it was true,
    When you kissed me, I felt all three words constantly repeated by you,
    Even to I know that I love you, Its amazing to see that you love me,
    Like who am I to be that blessed or lucky?
    I mean I have No four leaves to bring me to this blissful rainbow,
    And I haven’t said my prayers that long to be at your halo…
    But now I realize that it’s not perfection you’re looking for,
    Its completion, that could fill your dreams and more…
    So that’s what I’ll do,
    Since I know you’re love is true…

    “A rough education”

    That’s when I knew it was true.
    That’s when I knew. That’s when I knew
    that’s the ruse that you’d use,
    that dope jab-step move,

    that quick pump-fake pass
    I swore was gonna happen,
    my defensive antenna braided bad,
    legs tangling up—you laughin,

    ankles breakin, you cross over,
    skatin past me on the fast-break, the last
    slow motion take
    on the big screen

    is you, posterizing some fool, and me,
    with a look like,
    I just got schooled on national TV.

    That’s when I knew it was true that Santa was not real. It was around 7am on christamas eve and I hard a loud sound. I went to the living looking for what I thought/ hoping was Santa. But it was my parents filling the stockings with stuff, and that is when I knew that santa was not real.

    That’s when I knew it was true, when I saw you get in your car and drive away. I knew it was the end of yours as grandmas relationship. I knew I wouldn’t have a set of grandparents. You were the best and so was she. But now your both different . That’s when I knew it was true when I answered your phone and a lady was asking for you. I knew you were cheating on grandma I knew it was over Forsure. That’s when I knew we as a family wouldn’t be the same.

    That’s when I knew it was true. The alien leader tells me that I was Earths only hope. The other aliens surround me and start chanting “hero”. Now I truly knew that I was ment for something more than just being an adverage teenager.

    That’s when I knew it was true. My life flashed by, i saw my dad with a belt in his hand and my grades in the other. It was a horrific scene straight from a horror movie.

    That’s when i knew it was true when i heard you talking about me. I didnt want to believe my friends when they would tell me that you’ve been talking behind my back, but when i turned around and heard you with my own ears. I finally found out who you really are.
