A Catholic uniform from age five.
My own silence - how do I survive?

My inner world is quiet, building bricks.
The oldest young paints, with whispered flicks.

The graham crackers and milk are my friends.
I close my eyes - too many colors blend.

The teacher called my mom, after so long.
“Does your child talk or do I have it wrong?”

In first grade I find my best friend, at last,
but bashful eyes move, from busy boys - too fast.

In sixth grade, fretting,  I throw off my glasses,
When a guy, I like, peeks in one of my classes.

Too coy to attempt popularity, but it’s no regret.
Looking back, glad my temperament slowly set.
