Flash Fiction #35 – Admitted

They said I was wasted potential. 

My parents. 

My teachers. 

The admissions counselors.  

That college was out of reach for me. 

They said it served me right: 

for skipping school 

to play with my computers… 

wasting away my potential. 


In our family everyone goes to Harvard, 

but I was supposedly 

not even getting into a community college. 

I admitted myself into Harvard. 

Computers were never a waste of time. 

I’m a hacker. 


Today I make an 8-figure salary 

working with the government. 

What do you do?
