Morning

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 15:28 -- Jelliam

The alarm goes off at four

the sun hasn't even risen

yet I have

and I couldn't feel worse

it's cold and dark out there

no sunlight to guide me

yet I go on

I manage to tear off my blankets and clothes alike

and get ready for the school day

my head hurts

and my legs are tired

yet I keep going on

I manage to make my coffee

And I think to myself

"Why"

Then I remember

four smiling faces

four beautiful people

four best friends

I want to see them again

I chug down the drink and head out the door. 

It's time to see my favorite people once again. 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My country
