Friends on a School Bus
Taylor, Age 14, Shanghai, China

It's my first day of school,
I'm nervous.
My teacher says we are
Going on a school bus,
To learn how to ride it
Every day.
But we must have partners.
I don't know anyone,
So my teacher walks me over
To a small girl
Who looks extremely shy.
“Hi,” I say,
“I'm Taylor.”
“I'm Cheyenne,”
Says my partner.
We talk the whole bus ride.
Starting off shy,
Then gaining confidence.
Turns out,
Cheyenne lives on the next street to my house.
We'll have the same bus stop.
As I chatter on
About random things.
I think kindergarten
Might not be so scary,
Now that I'm talking
To my best friend.
