Teenage School Woes

Tomorrow, should I wake?
Gather a disappeared strength
to rise into the cold
slide on crisp jeans,
feeling for this weeks
pair of damp socks.

Tomorrow should I wake?
To face harsh sea winds,
forcing my way along
this winding road.
Venture across the channel
on a rocking ferry;
feeling the metal twist between
a current's fingers.

Should I wake tomorrow?
Only to be packed into
a school bus that
smells of many things
and none of them pleasant.
To wander alone along
crowded halls, rummage
through 'friends' leftover
lunches and sit in classes
I don't even need.

Should I wake tomorrow?
And face another day
in this never ending
nightmare of years,
struggling to swim against
authority's tide
and live to die?

Did you wake up and survive another brutal day. Don't get an office job where you'll be shackled to your cubicle!!:)
