I watch the boy
With blue eyes and the
Breathtaking sweep of his hair
Across his forehead.

He's all jock.
Such a newbie
Striving to fit in, but I will say
He's got good looks.

He's probably a jerk.
The cocky thinks-he-knows-our-system
Kind of guy.
When he doesn't and we all know it.

I watch the boy
With blue eyes and the
Breathtaking sweep of his hair
Across his forehead.

Light filters through the blinds.
Illuminating him, his face.
The excitement of first day
Has died down.

He's reading quietly at his desk.
He looks sincere, real.
The kind of nice guy
Everybody wants to get to know.

It's then I realize
That's all he is.
A nice guy who, I must say
He's got good looks.

I watch the boy
With blue eyes and the
Breathtaking sweep of his hair
Across his forehead.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Great work - the pressures of fitting in and the guilt one feels after judging someone too soon.

Very nicely done...I think that is a universal feeling for new kids in school and you conveyed it well.
