I sit at my desk and log into my laptop.
School starts in five minutes,
but there’s no need to rush
in the comfort of my own home.
I look at the time:
Time for first period.
Both my hands type the notes on the screen,
although my eyes fight to stay open;
my brain struggles to think;
my body jitters; it can no longer stay still.
The school day drags on,
so why does time fly when I have a test?
I hastily turn in my assignment,
feeling the stress grow inside me.
It eats away at me
As I click
and click on the keyboard.
At last, the school day ends.
I shut my laptop, sigh,
and head outside
to watch the bright, fluffy clouds
before I click, click and click on my computer once more.
