The World Around Me

As the sun rises
I will wake up feeling sad
Why am I so sad?

The air is so thick
with muffled curses and swears.
What limits the word?

I walk to my stop.
I get on my bus alone.
I sit in my seat.

Stare out my window
as the world rushes by fast.
So soon I will die.

My lessons so long.
My ears deadened by slow speech.
When will the day end?

When I get back home
I hope to breathe easier.
What a fool I am.

I stay in this spot
until the dark blue night comes.
I finally rest.

And the next morning
I wake up feeling so sad.
It all starts again.

I know why I'm sad.
A never ending cycle.
The world around me.

I FOUND YOU! Pretty awesome detective skills, huh! :D Great poem, by the way! At least you have those moments of hysterical laughter in Science class, right? XD
