Poems about Middle and High School

The difficulties of School is a subject which many have written about. Children are in some ways like savages, untrained in the ways of society. They may not stop to think whether it is wrong to torture other children. Students are often the target of emotional or physical bullying. Most schools have various groups or gangs of students that exclude all others. Yet, there is much good that children and teens do between each other. There is no question that school can be a difficult place to be and there is much to write about school life.

    School is a daily routine for us.
    In the morning, we're sure to make a fuss.

    Here we are, awake at 6am sharp.

    Just so people can test you and prove you're a fool.
