"Just a small town girl/ living in a lonely world/ took a midnight train/ going anywhere."

It’s never quiet in the classroom,
Teachers talking over
Students talking over
Brains thinking.
It’s never quiet in the lunchroom,
Mouths are chewing while the
Mouths are talking while the
Teeth are grinding.
It’s never quiet in the gymnasium,
Throwing equiptment,
Throwing tantrums,
Causing fights.
It’s never quiet in the music room,
Pounding instuments overpowering
Pounding noises overpowering
Awful headaches.
It’s never quiet on the playground,
Yelling to friends and
Yelling at ememies and
Crying alone.
It’s never quiet in the art room,
Loud colors mirroring
Loud voices mirroring
Obnoxious people.
It’s never quiet.

I wish I lived in a world where only the sounds of nature could be heard, where the babbling of a brook and the wind in the trees are the only sounds that resonate through the world. I wish.

Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Just remember that if you never heard the annoying sounds and only heard the amazing sounds, than the amazing sounds wouldn't be as precious.
