In the Mind of A Senior

Blaring alarm, pounding fist,
I could use five more minutes
My mother’s freaking, why can’t I sleep more?

My breakfast is soggy; I have no clean clothes,
Why didn’t mother do my laundry!
Can’t find the homework for that project today,
Late! Will have to exceed the speed limit,
Face to palm, car won’t start
Run downhill to catch the bus,
Crap! Falling over, scraped knee, bloody palms

Finally get to school, have a period to wait,
Hitch a ride with a friend to have a coffee break,
The line at Starbucks is a mile long
That old lady is just crawlin' along
Speed up granny, we've places to go!
Why is senior parking so small?
That stupid junior stole our parking stall,

Incomplete homework that I just don't know,
Boring teachers, why don’t they just shut up?
I know this crap, I just don't care,
What you're talking about is making me stare,
And why do I have to share?

This was one of the assignments in my Advanced Creative Writing class. We were supposed to write a spoken word poem on a topic that is important to us.
