Teens need eight hours of sleep-
Eight hours for the body to recharge
Eight hours to delve into our mind
And dream of whimsical ideas.
But then I wonder,
Why do teachers
Pile on homework like rocks
Until we have
The weight of a mountain on our shoulders?
The clock ticks mockingly.
The big hand is on the 12
And the little hand is on the 3
When my eyelids give up
And flutter to a stop.
