Everyone remembers that one teacher that made school worth going to, worth getting through the day, worth holding on. This teacher helped me get through 5th period.

Making it till Mo

Open the textbook

Suck the history in

Stare at the page but not really look

Let the day begin


Write a paper about the sin to slay a mockingbird

Commas, periods, and quotation

Checking the spelling for every word

Bored into sedation


Lungs filled deep with air

Tall vowels, strong 't's, carrying through

Become with the breath well aware

Same old songs and nothing new


Stories from Sunday school

Chapters and verses for memorization

Learn all of the Bible's rules

Fighting sleep's wonderful sensations


About ready to loose it and scream

I'm ready to leave, ready to go

Hear my crashing self-esteem

But I hold it together in silence

Next in line is bio

Reminding myself of the only joy and whisper

"Just making it till Mo"
