Waiting For The Bus

Tousled hair,
Cracked lips,
Wind-burned cheeks,
Ears turned red,
Numb fingers peek through tattered gloves.

Standing alone,
Frowsy clothes,
Pants too long,
Shirt too short,
Rain sneaks into worn shoes.

Laughter all around,
Wishful smile,
Timid glance,
Step back from the crowd,
The will to fit in, the fear too loud.

Shoved aside by the line,
Books fall,
Water splashes,
Bus doors open,
A sigh, a step, another day starts.
