I wake in the morning and start my day
Its not very bright
Its kind of grey
I walk to school
Through the wet and the cold
My jackets too small
Its ripped and its old
I get to the school and walk through the door
I dont say a word
But announce that Im poor
I stand in a line for lunch that is free
I hang my head down
I hate being me
I head to the gym for first hour class
Their choosing teams
They chose me last
I made it through gym
And head down the hall
I try to blank out the names that Im called
I think to myself
Please stop; please ;no more
Just another grey day
For a kid who is poor
