First day of school
When I entered the place I had never seen before, I was not ready to let go of my mum's hand,
I clutched my mum's hands tighter in hopes that she wouldn't let go.
She noticed my anxiety and smiled,
As if she knew exactly what I was thinking,
She said, a few words of comfort, and some words of wisdom.
I gained some courage and went in.
The moment I saw her shadow go away, I cried.
I wanted my safe haven and not this world of strangers.
I realized what my mum meant, that they can't sit next to me all of my life,
I had to make it on my own. ©meera_patel6902
The bell rang and I went outside and saw them,
In this sea of strangers I'll always find you.
When my eyes go blind, you'll be my last colorful daydream.
