High School Day One

December 19, 2007
By Desirae Malaczynski, Hartland, WI

The alarm sounds at the crack of dawn
Just five more minutes as I hit the snooze

Eyes half open, I begin to yawn
Will I be the one they choose?

Getting ready for school
I straighten my hair

Wear an outfit that I think is cool
Will they even care?

The bell rings after my fourth hour class
Just three more classes as I grab my lunch

Smiles and greetings as friends pass
Will I be part of “their” bunch?

Leaving after my day was complete
I think to my self, “I’m still alive!”

All I want to do is kick up my feet.
Will they let me survive?
