First week of school - a poem

Four days of waiting
outside the classroom
Having you come
again and again
Every time I said
stay in there
I kept repeating
make friends
Fifth day today
you didn't come
I am repeating
I should be glad

  2. It is sometimes hard to feel you will fit in. Eventually most kids do, don't they? Welcome to Poetry Jam!

    1. Thanks Gabriella.
      Most kids do fit in... it's just that for some the effort from the parents' side has to be monumental...

  4. It's a funny feeling when your child finally gets adjusted and "stays in there" having made friends finally....sweet letting go.

  5. This seems to be the view of a mother of a shy child starting school. I had one of those and it was a challenge. Thanks for linking at Poetry Jam!

  10. The friends we make early in life may shape our personality and they are often the ones we always go back to. However, it is difficult to reach out that first time...
