Day One

Day one I am starting my new school
my emotions are in a spin
some of me wants to run ahead
to meet new people and friends

The rest of me wants to hide
to stay behind my mother's skirts
I cling to her hand staying close
and whine for her to take me home

She leads me on not seeming to care
down the strange corridors full of doors
finally reaching and entering through one
there is my new teacher who is smiling

waving goodbye to mother I settle to play
its not so scary after all, and the toys are great
I soon make many new friends to play with
not knowing as she walks home mum has a sob

For her a big wrench to leave me behind
even though she knows I will have fun
and start to learn many new things
at end of day one I will return home
