Long Night
Jennifer, Age 14, Richmond, BC

Lying down in bed one night
trying to get some sleep,
for tomorrow is another day
and I try not to weep.

I try to force thoughts from my head
as I try and rest
for another day of school
I don't want to be a pest.

My eyes are getting heavy now,
I guess I ought to be in bed.
For if my mother catches me,
she'll have me by the head!
