High School

You're lucky to survive;

The halls
of secret texting
kissing and groping
pushing and shoving
and the bullies
that prowl.

The homework
and projects
of every single class
the teachers assign you
today, tomorrow, and forever.

The lunch
of roaring students
food throwing
ongoing line to lunch
hairnets
unidentifiable food.

The classes
of spit-balls,
desk sleeping,
pencil chewing,
scribing never-ending
notes.

High School.

You're lucky to survive.

I disagree with you. This is great. I love how it's so simple and states things that are so true. I love how the beginning and ending lines are the same. You don't have to be deep and hardcore to write something that people want to read. Great job! Check out my work if you ever get a chance.
