Sitting on My Mountain, Overlooking the World

Sitting on my mountain,

overlooking the world,

Not many people see it

the way I do- my mind is a swirl.

School, family, friends,

home, Chinese, fun

This list has hardly,

even begun.

Every day an ordeal,

every ordeal a test

can I handle the pressure

to do only my best?

I'm cracking, I'm breaking.

what shall I do?

I look around frantically-

then I see you.

I pick up my pen

and write in a whirl

"Sitting on my mountain,

overlooking the world,"
