School Poem For Kids

Poem About School Being Hard

I have such a hard time focusing in school. I feel like I'm not smart like all the other kids around me. I try to pretend like I'm working so they think I am smart like them. I'm lost. I'm confused. Nothing they say makes me understand.

Hard Work


Published: April 2017

They're all staring at me,
Right through me they can see.
I bet they are judging,
They know I'm not focusing.
"I can't do this," I tell myself.
There is no way,
The teacher calls my name,
And there is nothing I can say.

Now they are all looking in my direction.
They act like I have some kind of infection.
Why am I the one who doesn't understand?
This really isn't going as I planned.
I am a hard worker, don't they know?
They are the ones who don't try,
I am the one about to cry.

The teacher sends me a dirty look.
I am reading everyone's mind like a book.
They are laughing at me.
I black out and cannot see.
My face has gone completely numb.
I'm the hard worker, not them.
I'm the hard worker, not him.
