Walkin' down the hallway with my
head held high

Hopin' no ones noticing that
I'm about to cry

I try not to see their stares
To pretend that I don't care

But they're all birds of prey
Just waiting for me to break

Making my way down to class
trying not to go too fast

I know if I get lost
There's going to be a heavy cost

I try to scope the land
to come up with some kind of plan

But soon I begin to drown
In the unfamiliar sounds

Of a new school

Where being new
Is just not cool.

The Good: Now THIS is OMG amazing!  I loved it!  It shows all the emotions of being left out in simple, yet beautiful, language.  This is going into my favorites - kudos! :D


The Random: I'm just going to sit here and finish my critique and pretend I'm not weirded out by the fact I just read my own thoughts on a computer screen.... :) Seriously, that's how real this is.

Thank you so much. This means a lot to me because I wrote it on my first day at a new school and I was literally pouring out my emotions on to the paper. In the middle of math class XD
