I Have a Life Outside of This Classroom

I know it's Monday

You always say that

But you don't know

My Saturday

I have a life outside of this classroom.

 

Maybe I went to a funeral

For someone who died

Far too young

And that's why

I didn't talk today

I have a life outside of this classroom.

 

Maybe I got a text

At 3 am

From someone I never wanted to see again

That scared me half to death

And that's why

I was shaking today

I have a life outside of this classroom.

 

So please,

Don't make fun of my new name

Or point out the fact that I'm biting my nails

There's probably a reason I am fading

I have a life outside of this classroom

And maybe

Just maybe

It matters.
