first day of the school year

swear to me
this is nothing more
than irrational fear
boring into my soul
swear to me
that your aren’t untrue
merely undetermined
of what to do
swear to me
forever is not a dream
a tale told to soothe
whatever the heart may deem

Yes, today was the first day of school for the lucky ones out this way. Isn’t that sad? It’s only sad until we get to the fall break, the two weeks off in October.
