First Day

Body shakes from overbeating heart

Frantic in the chest

Racing toward a brand new start

Encumbered by the stress


Losing all sense of any control

Traffic and time does conspire

Invisible walls surrounding a goal

Tardiness is less that desired


First day, first meeting, can’t be late

Speed becomes a must

All thoughts on this important date

All considered logic hushed


Attention falls to distracted panic

Clouding all decisions

Thoughts a torrent, wild and manic

Toward unexpected collision


Head throbs in disorientation

Rushing feet are halted

Chaotic confused contemplations

Body recoils assaulted


There’s no movement any more

All panic fades away

A good first impression is done for

As is the hope of any more days

    1. I’m still struggling with the title but I’m really happy you think the actual poem part worked 😄It’s sorta the important part after all. Ahaha
      Glad you enjoyed it, I quite like the vagueness of where the character is headed, makes it a tad more relatable for all. Well atleast that was the intent.
