The Exam

 

Watching the minute hand move around the clock

My arms grew heavy and I couldnŐt move

My life is a mess

Everything was falling apart

 

I was lost in a world of wonder

No words could utter from my mouth

No thoughts inside my curious brain.

I could not seek refuge among those I loved

 

Tears started uncontrollably running down

My anxiety was crawling up inside me

Could this be the end?

It was like nobody was hearing my cry for help

Everything at once was being thrown at me

 

Suddenly, the door opened

I walked in, sat down, and began life.

 

 

Running Low

 

I ventured

through the mountains 

with my friends

for the entire week

 

I brought the car

back to the house

running on 

fumes

 

I sincerely apologize

ocean blue skies 

fresh spring air and lush greenery

were so beautiful
