RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Dear God (Streets of Philadelphia)

Another poem/song I made that I hope to rap soon. The song is meant to take the perspectives of various people struggling in their various life situations. I think the lyrics will explain for themselves.

Dear God (Streets of Philadelphia) by Hansgrohe
Hidden stuff:

Dear God, I'm singing the school blues
Another day in isolation, it seems nothing changes
Does the world hate me for being a nerd?
The sun shines yet I have no clues
All my friends are becoming distant strangers
Ever since middle penitentiary my voice was never heard
I'm screaming to the lord, my tears taste sweet
I've got no hope, stuck sinking in quick sand
I never had a girl, none give a shit for me
My head's a hurting, can't thinking rationally
They said have a good summer, but none understand
My mind and the mirror scream telling I'm ugly
My mourning's turned to anger, it's time for me to shine
I've converted to nihilism, thinking homicide
God, tell Satan to open his doors, I've got my glock
The bitch is a lie, explode it all till I sing bye bye, I was never meant to be

Oh brother are you gonna leave me wastin' away
On the Streets of Philadelphia

(Verse 2)
Dear God, I've been crippled by doom
My best friends live in foreign nations
Every street I take, different story same song
My drunk parents make me a refugee in ma' room
The status quo has decapitated all ma' aspirations
In my sleep I wonder what I did wrong
The smell of booze every Saturday morning
I want a genie to grant me a spot six feet under
Let me be free, fly with the birdies
All the advice seems so corny
I look at the night sky and I just shudder
I'm slowly choking under all this rubble
I hate my family, I want to leave this circus
My ex didn't want to leave me so he'd hit me
I've lost my weed to console me
I'm breaking down, and I sing bye bye, I was never meant to be

(Verse 3)
I was just a white girl stuck in a small world
I escaped like they'd do to blacks in Jim Crow
Yet the lord saw my suffering, he let me in
I hated school, I never fit the mold
I met this Mexican dude, he had nice eyes that were blue
We talked, he told me the barrio did him in
We understood though cause neither of us got love
I told him my mother always liked to beat me
He told me he saw an old man taken in a drive by
Even though our colors aren't the same, we have the flow of the same blood
We're both glad we got the chance to leave
Nothing but joy and fraternity, everyone at the same time
The popular kids can all kiss my ass
This hoodrat can show a teen girl empathy
We're climbing the crossroads, god's gonna open the door
Lush meadows and beautiful scenery, we all sing bye bye, I was never meant to be
