The new girl sat across the room from me
Her long blonde hair flowed gently down her waist
With eyes fixed on the board, you’d still agree
She seemed just slightly scared and out of place

I glanced away to hide my lonely stare
While others worked away at their dull task
Among themselves they talk and somewhat glare
For she was not a friend you’d want to ask

I gathered up my stuff right after class
And walked to where she stood all by herself
I planned to not just simply by her pass
And stayed awhile to introduce myself

Although eventually we said goodbye
To think that months ago I’d never try

This piece was inspired by a real life experience that I had in 8th grade. I hope that people can relate and learn from it that taking a risk doesn't always change your life forever, but it gives you a good place to start.
