Stand and Wait

A/N: I wrote this a little over a month ago for school ;) (FYI the word of the day that we had to include was "fermata" so that's why I used it XD)


We stand and we wait, in the cold and the snow

The school bus is late, for the third time this week

As the seconds tick by and turn into minutes, our toes feel as if they will fall off

A cold wind blows through, staying for long, as though it were a fermata

I glance at my watch; school starts in just ten, and the street seems barren

As the other kids go off, and walk through the woods, making their way to school; I stand and I wait as time passes by, until the bus comes a half-hour late
