Never having to experience the circle of Hell called High School.
Never knowing what unrequited love feels like.
Never knowing the pain of a broken heart.
Never feeling unwanted or misunderstood.
Never knowing guilt or regret.
Never living in a twisted society that glorifies the very violence it supposedly finds abhorrent.
Never knowing hopelessness or despair.
Never finding mental illness hiding behind the door of adulthood.
Never knowing loss.
