I sit down
First day, first class
New faces are all I see
I see smiling faces
Faces, all staring back at me
Comforted, that's how I feel
Routine, that's what I need
Structure, crucially important
New friends, new professors
All around me
As time goes by
Somehow I feel lost.
Lost within myself.
Doubts, lonliness, fear of being alone.
I think to myself, "Will I be able to do this?"
"Will I be able to hold my ground?"
A while later a friend is there.
A constant, outgoing, smart, kind face
Staring back at me
And I know then that I don't have to pretend anymore
I realize that I can finally enjoy the trees
Natures changing colors and the releasing of their leaves
You are not alone in this new world
This new reality that you are living in
That much is true
You have the power to change the world
I'll take up that challenge
