Winner takes all
looser takes none
welcome to high school
isn't this fun?

The games can get hard
and then they're confusing
but ultimate death
is the concept of loosing

Back stabing
fingers crossed
hearts broken
friendships lost

High school is hard
but it's just a game
we all want to live
want to make our name

Actually I would't worry. I wrote this poem at the beginning of freshman year; now that I'm older highschool is really chill. Just keep your friends close.

Excellent :) I'm not in high-school yet but I'm not extremely freaked out. I've heard good things and bad things both...we'll just see what happens when I'm actually there... ;) Love the first stanza, by the way!

You can say that I'm a talented writer, but all I can do is write down my feelings on paper and form them into sentences with my own personal flavor.

This basically almost sums up what high school is like for people that are not popular. God, I really don't like high school at all... But great poem though!

High school is AWESOME! I love this poem, this had me thinking. I love the line "friendships lost"(3.4) which means throughout high school your friends would leave, but you still have to move on. THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON! I love this one....

ah its not that bad. Im a junior in HS, it can be fun. but at the same time, you have to be careful. Kids are an evil creation, but define the future. I truly hate some of hte kids here, but I love others. THis is the place where friendships are made,(lasting ones, not those pathetic middle school ones), people grow up, and you begin to find out what you want ot do with your life.

Enjoy the 4 years buddy, They won't last.

I would have to say that this does describe high school and it is not no surprise to me.
