One, two, three

Minutes late to the bus stop

I sigh with relief, the bus driver waited because she knows me


Four, five, six

Times I fell asleep in class

But it’s okay, I have lunch after this


Seven, eight, nine

People ahead of me

At least it’s usually a fast line


Ten, eleven, twelve

Weird and loud sounds,

What are they? My friends and I ask ourselves


Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen

Million thoughts

Through my head as I run, cause I now realize what they mean


Sixteen, seventeen, eight—

I feel a pain, a pinch, and I fall

I can’t go any further, can you keep going for me?
