That taunting pressure of not running,
burning through my skin in a way that is cunning.
The teacher's light shines on me with tremendous hope,
what should I do, Running- I can't cope.
The beats my heart pump, embarrising, when I enter the school-The Last Person!
Though everyone claps and cheers, only I know that laughter hidden within each person.
Running would be the last thing in the world that I would choose to do,
but what should I do when everyone's hopes on me are stirred in that hot stoo.
