(105) Dark Circles Are Cool - Poem by Risha Ahmed (12 yrs)

I couldn’t sleep last night
I couldn’t sleep even an hour
I couldn’t sleep how hard I tried
With all my might and power
I remember being awake
Those eight hours I was alive
Ten, eleven, twelve, one
Two, three, four, five
I have ugly dark circles under my eyes
Now, how am I to go to school?
All I have to hope is that
My classmates think it’s cool!

    Tee hee... I really liked this one... I can definitly relate to it... I actually didn't get any sleep last night... I watched a movie and have been exploring this site for almost four hours... so I am really hoping that dark circles are cool right now too. (Report) Reply

    Very charming. I am sure you are a 'cool' little girl with or without the dark circles.
    Take care.
