Life Beyond the Halls

Location

Five minutes left of 4th period

Someone is staring at you

Quick smile

Continue sketching on your notebook

Bell rings

Scatter into the halls

Overwhelmed by students

Staring

Judging

Pushing

Gossiping

Mind your own business

Say hi to your friend

Get your books

Stop at the bathroom

More girls

More judgements

More pressure to fit in

Walks to class early

Avoids any attention

This is how I live

Period to period

Day to day

Year to Year
