An App


Plagiarism
Is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas
And passing them off as one's own
There is a website that we use to prevent
Copying, infringement and theft
Before we submit a paper
We send it through the app
To see if we stole ideas from
Another source, another author, another website
I wish I were like this in a way
I wish you could just send me through a device
And in seconds it would tell me
If anyone has ever used me before
Stole my thoughts, copied my phrases, taken credit for my words
I wish it could tell me
Who pretended to be my friend when they really weren't
Who took my lunch money when they already had some of their own
I wish you could send me through a device
So that I could find out who
Borrowed my ideas and forgot to give them back
Who grabbed the events in my mind and didn't let them go
Who opened my heart and laughed at what I was feeling inside
I wish you could send me through a device
And in seconds it would tell me if anyone has ever used me before
In seconds it would tell me
Everything that I have been trying to figure out for years
