WAITING

April 3, 2008
By Sarah Allen, Fort Meade, MD

Tenchen builds the longer you sit there

Watching people go in and out

Waiting for your turn

You get nerves, scared

Your palms sweaty

Like Niagra Falls.



Then you rname is called

Gasping for air as you get up

Not knowing what lies ahead

You go in like you will not

Come out the person you were.



Now you must wait again

But this time everything is spinning

Up is down and down is up

You hear the news

Then suddenly everything stops

Up is up and down is down

Everything in the world

Is normal once more.
