Junior High Daze

 

Oh, how the panic set in as I stepped off the bus

into an alternate universe, a different world

Going from the safe cocoon of grades 1-6,

into 7th, was a total shock to my system,

I went from the comfort of adults in charge,

to a ‘you’re on your own!’ freefall with no net to catch you

It seemed like overnight, you were expected to be all grown up,

making your own decisions, about everything,

and no one could have been more unprepared,

having led a sheltered life up to this point

There were times I didn’t think I would make it,

but I guess I did; although the scars took years to disappear
