I Wake Today

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I wake today,
get out of bed,
then stretch and yawn
and scratch my head.

I find my clothes.
I pull them on
while stifling
another yawn.

I grab a breakfast
bar for fuel,
and hoist my pack
and head to school.

When I arrive
I’m truly shocked.
The lights are off.
The door is locked.

I check my watch.
It’s me, not them.
I woke too soon.
It’s 4am.
