Venus Fire

Rookie (China)

On my way to school (ballad attempt)


It was a pleasant day
walking down the road
too bad it's so early
carrying a heavy load
on my way to school

As I walk down the same street
taking in what I see
quiet birds are flying by
as if they want to flee
on my way to school

then I see a body
lying on the ground
looking cold and brittle
its face showing a frown
on my way to school

I get to the ravine
and smell the fresh air
and hearing the running water
thinking life is fair
on my way to school

I arrive at my goal
tired as can be
the day has only started
and I already want to sleep
because of my journey to school
