Last year, New Situation

Having been accepted into a college-prep high school,

     The exhilaration spread through my body like sparks.

Enrolled as a dual student in a community college,

     I was on the edge of two worlds.

Listening and learning viewpoints,

     My mind was expanding beyond my horizons.

Prioritizing assignments and projects,

     Managing-only barely.

Mother and father pushing me for a better grades,

     Their intense glares root me to my spot, unble to retort.

Eager to leave for school each passing day,

     For that was the only place I didn't loose my temper.
