Today I awoke at 8:08,
I hopped out of bed,
I was running late,
I pulled on a T-shirt, shorts, and a sock,
And ran down stairs to look at the clock.

It is now 8:10and I am almost ready,
To run to the bus, quick and steady,
I grabbed my backpack and almost forgot,
To grab a book I liked a lot.

I run to the bus, and on my way,
I realized that today is Saturday.

I decided about what this topic was going to be while I was falling asleep! How ironic!

I love how the last line tricks you. It leads up to something unexpected, and I like that. Some lines could use some work, though. The line "To grab my book I liked a lot" Seems really forced, and should be either cut or replaced. This whole poem seems like it could use flushing out, actually. But all in all, it's a great starter poem. Good job.
