כל העולם כולו גשר צר מאד והעיקר לא לפחד כלל
The whole world is like a narrow bridge and the main thing is not to be afraid at all
-Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
(sounded a lot better before it was translated... oh well)


When the chaos gets too noisy
And the fighting gets too crazy
And the volume can't be muffled
By the music in your ears

When the teacher's voice is grating
And the problems are just horrid
And you feel like your drowning
In a well of unshed tears

And the lunchroom din's unnerving
When your friend is up and running
To the "cool" kids in the corner
As soon as you heave a sigh

And the watershed is breaking
And your woefulness is peaking
And your brain is overflowing
You will finally have a cry

You will leap up from your school desk
And dash wildly through the hallway
And you'll make it to the bathroom
And you'll finally start to weep

You will hear the hinges creaking
And a friendly person breathing
And you'll hear the little rustle
of some cookies in a heap

As you crunch upon a cookie
And the chocolate hugs your taste buds
And the sweetness makes you calmer
And you slowly start to smile

As you look up at your savior
See her smile, reassuring
And you know she'll always be there
With some chocolate and a hug.

Awww, thanks, TGWDWS (sorry about that, your username is just a bit long (: ) I'm not really a poem person myself. I'm just trying it out. The meter is based on Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator ("In the squelching slimy sogmere" or something like that, when the grobes come oozing home) :).

"Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the world together."

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
"What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
- C. S. Lewis

O_O That was... Just... I have no words for this. xD I've never been a poem person, but this poem is just... Wow. Love how it's just free from rhymed words- rhyming always sounds awkward to me. :)
