2022 Winner


My teenage life mainly focuses on homework,

My eyes pop up with figuring out time,

My body is covered with sticky tape and activities,

My mind is a worker bee that works too much,

My beauty sleep is sadly cut short with scissors,

My knowledgeable experiences got harder year by year,

My strong brain focuses on the completion process,

My so called wish is getting better grades,

My beloved mental health needs improvement,

My extra free time needs to occur more often!
