The first day was mixed
My feelings mixed
My thoughts mixed
I was part scared –
I was part nervous –
Although, part excited –
Too many feelings
Too many thoughts
Too many reasons why
My surroundings are noticeable.
There are smells wafting, and exploring their way into my nose.
There are buses sprinting past, to get to their destination.
There are “good lucks”, “goodbyes, and “farewells”.
There are other kids that are chatterboxes with their friends.
I also feel lonely.
I was in a new place
I was in a new school
And this was only the first day
There was more to come.
This poem first describes what was going on inside my head, while it was all going on. My feelings, emotions and thoughts. I wanted to describe my mixed thinking and attitude. Towards the end, I wrote about things happening around me that I noticed. All the new things.
