" "Ode to My Teacher". "'Write a poem,' she said, 'a poem with truth... Write a poem, ' she said, like she understands youth. I try really hard. It hurts, you don't see. I'll always love English, so go ahead, fail me. I'll just write this dumb poem, and say what is real. I'm angry and mad, and that is just what I feel. I hope you enjoyed this dedication from me. A dedication for you, from the girl... with a 'C'"."
― Sydney to Mrs. Harris
