Masses
Crowd
Bodies searching for
Warmth
Some are warmer than others
But all look
For something more
Amongst the masses
A cage holds them all back
From going forward
And finding that
Something more
They sit
Next to a body
Quietly
Some are louder than others
I am a body
In the crowd
Amongst the masses
Searching for warmth
But for once
Because I am tired
Of being caged
I sit
And say
Hello

I was writing this on the bus on the way to school, but I feel this goes beyond a schoolbus experience.

Remarkable. I think it definitely goes beyond a school bus experience.
