My First Day At High School
There I was in a terrified state
my first day at High School
how would I cope, stammer and all
as kids can be really cruel
The headmaster had quite a reputation
6 feet 4, former boxer with wide shoulder
so first period of afternoon I got a call
to the headmaster's office feeling lot older!
But to my wonderful surprise, he's so nice
don't worry said he you're in no trouble
have you had speech therapy he asked?
I had at 7 years old but no use at any price
Well things have improved he said
I'll arrange transport to take you there
can your parents collect you afterwards?
sure can says I, hey this guy does care
Well the therapy didn't improve me
but it showed me the reality of my speech
now many years later still stammering
but believing my goal will still reach
( I've written this of my memory of my first day at high school those many years ago, quite funny looking back and am still following my goal!)
