Heart Aflight


Sitting in class

Watching the clock tick by

I wonder what time the sun will set 

What time the bus will pass

If dinner is ready

Will I have to run from the class bully

The Clock Ticks by 

My heart is aflight

Time to go home

29, 30, 31, 32 Minuets have passed

The man has a gun to my head

Has the sun yet set

Did the bus pass by 

Was dinner ever ready

The class bully is at my side

Praying as much as I

41,42,43,44 Minuets have passed

The man has locked the door 

My heart is still aflight never to loose hope

When will I go home?
