My life

When I was one 

I had so much fun

Not knowing what lay ahead 

Or how many tears I would shed

 

When I was four

In front of me was the door

Of the dreaded place

Known as the school

 

When I was nine

Everything seemed fine

I was in fifth grade

When on my neck came the exam blade

 

An year later I was ten

This was when the tension began

First position was on my parent's tongue

For me it was like the devil had sung

 

When I was eleven life was harder

What with studies it was like murder

I wanted to run away, far away

Yet I don't know what made me stay

 

While I write this I am twelve

With awards from each class on my shelf

As I write these words I think 

When will I have the freedom to even blink
