The Ticking Clock

The sound of footsteps reverberates in the corridor
The sun shines through a minor crack in the wall
Teachers and students alike rush through the hallway
Shouting, pleading, arguing, smiling

I stand in silence and observe
The classrooms where I had once roamed as a child
The tiny seats perched in one corner of the room
The wooden desk set in the middle
