Classical Jazz '05



Good Morning

Good Morning

It’s not a good morning

because now I’m awake

it’s not the first period bell

it’s a grade 4 earthquake

it’s I’m stuck in a room

with people I don’t know

it’s gosh we have to learn things now

I can’t let my mind go

I want everyone

to look at me

to cure my


I want everyone to listen

without me saying a word

reserved and bone-silent

I’m just dying to be heard

It’s a brilliant lunchbreak

because I can let go

it’s my mind is racing so bad -

it’s I can’t feel my toes

It’s me sitting wishing I

lived as loud as I dress

it’s movie-inspired day-dreams not

studying for the test.

We had to write "bio poems" for Mr. Mooney...

this poem is really relatable, because we've all been there, and even if not everyone feels the way the writer feels, the still can understand what that writer is feeling.

Wow Alyssa, I really enjoyed this! My favorite part is: I can't let my mind go I want everyone to look at me to cure my insecurity.

I love this poem. No wonder you write songs. Write more, please. By the way, you have an impeccable fashion sense.
