"Imagination is more important than knowledge."


- Albert Einstein


Monotonous hours
drift past;
quickly
do i wish
to pass through
this shadow.
I wake
I eat
I leave home,
this is how
it always
starts
flowing swiftly now
taking me by storm
filling me, till
I'm ready to
burst.
Everyone knows
it has
happened
to all of them.
I speak of
the scariest
monster
of all...
School!!!


The author's comments:
School seems so scary to so many people, but this poem didn't become about school until two days after I wrote it. That's when I added the final line.
