I like this poem. And I'll tell you why. I am the parent of a soon to be 7th grader,this next week. I have actually talked to him recently and had him tell me how much "stress" he feels the school puts on him. And how mean the children can be, in the school.
I actually pictured my own child, walking through the halls of his school, sitting and staring at his lunch from school, and having to feel the ickiness one would feel as they received a not so great grade.
I believe this poem is, and can be very relatable to all teenagers having to go through the public school systems. As sad as it is, I think this poem can serve as a good reminder to parents. We were all there once, we should know how stressful school can be. We should stop and listen to our children, more often. And I really think your piece brings that to the forefront of our minds.
This is an excellent, thought-provoking piece. thank you for sharing!
