As Grey As Everyone Else - Poem by Ana Schatzmann
It's 3: 27 a.m. and I'm alone.
I'm sitting on my bed, starring at the blue walls as if they could give me answers to all the silent questions.
The thought of sleep hasn't crossed my mind once.
In a few hours, I am going to get ready for the world.
I am going to put on my uniform, draw a smile on my face and leave the house.
I am going to walk through the busy streets and the crowded corridors.
I am going to be very happy, because my life is so much better now.
I am going to laugh with my friends and enjoy every moment.
I am going to be the friendly and positive girl from far away.
I am going to come home on time, study and help cooking.
I am going to have a fun evening.
I am going to go to bed early, because I have school the next day.
And then, after I closed the door behind me, I am going take the mask off.
I am going to sit on my bed all night long and think to the voice of my favorite band mixed with the sound of rain.
