I am a un-smart person wanting to be smart!
I wonder if I ever will be smart...
I hear the voices of peeple mocking me.
I see the world thru a key hole, but I want more.
I pretend... I dont pretend anything. Its lying.
I cry when I loose hope in getting smart.
I hope that I will be choosen for the operashun.
I need someone to understand me and treet me like everyone else.
I wish I was smart... wait, did I say that already?
I am a guy named Charlie Gordon
I am a genius who has once known what it was like to be mentally disabled.
I wonder why people still exclude me from things even after I have become a genius.
I hear the sounds of the lab; the machines, test animals, and other doctors.
I see myself as being superior to the ones who I once thought were smart.
I pretend to be the same Charlie Gordon but I seem to be changing in thoughts and personality.
I cry when I can't seem to understand other people's reaction towards my change.

Flowers for Algernon...Flowers for Algernon is a science fiction novella written by Daniel Keyes. The story is about a thirty-seven year old, mentally challenged man, named Charlie Gordon, who is picked for an operation. The scientists increased his intelligence artificially, just like they had with a mouse named Algernon, but later, after Charlie's IQ had risen to over two hundred, Algernon falls unexpectedly ill and returns to his original state before the operation, then he dies. So Charlie dedicates his last few days to researching on what had gone wrong and if and when he will go through the same thing, and of course, Charlie finds that he will indeed return back to being dumb and has already noticed some changes in his personality. After the huge rise of Charlie's intelligence as well as a few romantic moments with Alice Kinnian (former teacher), Charlie's IQ takes a dramatic fall as he watches everything he's learned taken away from hFlowers for Algernon... by maryhadalittlelamb
The odd FairMay 20, 2008- Lynnsey and I were heading to a local fair. The only thing was, it wasn't just a normal fair, everything was black and dark... it was like a city such as San Fransisco. From the sewer disks on the floor of the street, stream rose up from it, clouding the ground in a thin mist. The city was quite trashed and polluted. The lights hitting the mist turned everything an ugly dark yellow color. We were looking at the different stores. There were people in it that were in rags and homeless, trying to sell everything and anything they had. While Lynnsey was looking around I turned and saw Lucas. I tapped Lynnsey and we walked up to him and smiled. Hey I said. He smiled. This was the first time I've stood so close to him. His smile was sharp and he had teeth much like a vampire's, Hey he said back. I looked around for his bestThe odd Fair by diamondrubylove

When I finally remembered that I was at school, I straightened up and tried not to act like I was having an heart attack. My heart still pounded loudly in my chest but I tried to act calm on the outside. I swung my backpack over my back and locked the car, and slowly walked towards the front doors of the school. I opened the doors that felt oddly heavy and inside was a vast jungle of students walking the halls and meeting up with new friends. I wandered towards the office.
Um... excuse me? I said as I poked my head into the small room. A lady in her mid 30's looked up at me. She had a sharp nose with sleek rectangular glasses placed atop them.
She raised an eye brow Yes?
Where do I get my schedule? I asked politely.
She waved her hand towards the gym and went back to concentrate on her papers. I nodded and walked out of the of
