Found this a few weeks back while cleaning room, this time I made sure it didn't get lost in my pile of junk again xD And presenting... A poem I wrote for a class assignment when I was 13 or 14, but didn't end up submitting because I got the inspiration to write a different one about some ballerina. That one got lost too, I'm not sure if the teacher even returned it :crying: Either way, at that time I was a kid who couldn't understand the society I grew up in, but now I'm an older kid who still can't understand it :D Half of the other gen Z-ers I know in real life feel the same way! We're all dreaming of escaping, but I suspect at least half of us won't succeed xD
Ah well!

~Slow Dance~ (I literally drew the squigglies on my paper, hahahas xD)

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the Sun into the fading light?

You better slow down,
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed,
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?

You better slow down,
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Ever told your child
"We'll do it tomorrow"?
And in your haste
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
'Cause you never had time
To call and say hi?

You better slow down,
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day
It's like an unopened gift...Thrown away.
