Did you yawn?
Yes, I breathed in the air of a new day.
Did you match your clothes?
Yes, I used the reflections of the Christmas tree.
I shaved my face, and my face has become smooth in return.
I brushed my teeth, and showered until I could squeak.
I fluffed my history report due, just to add a few more lines.
I started my car early, to let the chillness run from its steely depths.
The moon still in the sky, like a dove to the night,
I checked myself as I entered the car.
To myself I said, everything? Check!
The streets filled with cards, whizzing by as they rush to their jobs.
This I see every morning as I conform to the rest of the American society.
Just as life is intended, to become the older generation.
Did you do your homework?
Yes, it spoke of the grades it had the capability of getting if I do it.
Did you pack an assorted lunch for good health?
I added strawberries and a few vegetables more just to stay true.
Did you remember your phone?
Of course, it’s been vibrating since the sounding of the alarm.
I gave high fives that cracked with the loud joyous friendships.
I found my place amongst all the other students in the class, unpacking my things.
Across the room, the teacher sat as she prepared to give her extensive lecture.
Outside the window I see the first flakes of Christmas snow fall,
All of us stare out the window, wondering, dreaming,
Of a white Christmas.
