Rohan's Defender's twin/cousin/sister/cognate

Message from Writer

PROMPT BELOW!
If you find inspiration with this, let me know. I would love to see what you guys do.
Prompt:

Half the names on the list had already been crossed off.

Check out Rohan's Defender and Coolgirl! Honestly, these are some of the most awesome people ever! And they write beautifully! Also, books4life is working on an HG fanfic and you NEED to go read it!

Also, if you need someone to rant to... I'm right here, ready to listen. And if you ever need someone to do a review, I'm here. And if you need a hug, I've got a few of those, too.

LMK if you'd like to be updated on any of my series.

My morning before school in a poem...

March 28, 2021

FREE WRITING

12
Wake up, are you awake?
No.
But the entire day is at stake!
Get up, check the time.
It's already 5:09.
Debate: Get up, or sleep.
Or just turn on the light and read.
Turn off alarms at 5:30 and 6.
Morning noise and I don't mix
6:30, it's time to get out of bed
Dad's up but Mom could be dead.
She's still asleep!

Get dressed by 6:40 or 6:45
Grab a skirt and a shirt, the house is a hive!
Of sleeping bees. Is no one alive?
Say "Mernin'!" to friends and bask in the quiet.
Is there bacon left, if so, then fry it!
Throw lunch in a box and look for a snack.
It's a sad little lunch, but I've searched to the max.

Now, it's 6:50, run to brush my hair.
It's the one thing that changes with the uniform I wear.
Wash my face and check the time.
Whose shoe is this? I know it's not mine.

It's 7 or later. Maybe ten after.
And the house is still not filled with the sound of laughter.
But I saw one kid and he looked half-asleep.
If I poked him, he'd probably bleep like a sheep.

Focus! Throw supplies in your backpack right now!
Check room for missing things. Already that time? Wow!
"She's on her way!" Mom yells and I put my bag in the hall.
I go say goodbye and, somehow, hit a wall.
I wince and wait, watching the window. 7:28, let's go!
She's running a few minutes late and I wait while people run 'round.
Now, the house is full of sound!

"She's here, Goodbye!" I exit through the door.
Now, I must go off and do war!
At school... where I will write because I am bored in class.
But, the morning goes by so fast.
So... yeah. I have a very strict morning schedule that I like keeping to... But what do you think of the poem!?

    It sounds super chaotic and stressful. And a lot of self restraint to not sleep in or read more. I love the rhymes too! I find it hilarious the way you described school, its less stressful than before school.

    This is so nice! I am a morning person, so I love getting up (staying up late is hellish for me) but I love the tone of this piece :)

    Haha so funny! I'm homeschooled, so usually I don't get up early, but I have Seminary at 7:30 two days of the week so those days are torture... My little bro is usually up at the same time as me those days, and I am like, "WHY WOULD YOU GET UP THIS EARLY ON PURPOSE??? It sucks. Anyway, great poem! I'm impressed by all the rhymes. :)
