A loud girl opens her mouth to brag
About the project she finished four days in advance.
I stare at my blank page and empty research,
Wringing my hands in stress.
I know I won’t be the best in the class,
I know I’m busy with other classes,
But all the reasons in the world can’t stop my nervous jitters.
My stomach flies,
My hands shake,
I sit on the edge of my seat,
Waiting for the end to come,
Knowing I will always be second best.

Written about a project that I didn't have much done the week it was due. Don't worry, I did finish it...

Your poems are amazing. I can't believe what power you can put into just a handful of words. I'm starting to love reading your work! In other words you're going to receive a lot of comments from me :P

This reminds me of a time I sat in class working on a project worth a lot of marks. The final marks were a contest for everyone to see who got the highest mark. And I too was second best. Brilliant poem!

i like this because it can apply to so many other things as well as projects... it has a deeper meaning. it makes me sad.... you know a poem is good when it provokes emotion =)

You can't change your past, but you can change your future.

your poems are amazing. I can't believe that just a few dozen words can be so powerful.
