Isaiah Timmons


I hear the cheering of the cheerleaders

At the basketball game

I see the water dripping

Slowly from the leaky faucet

I smell the rotting food

That we ate at lunch

I hear Alvin yelling things that

Are white, I hear the

Loud thundering stomps of

The step team I hear

My own heart racing as I run

Up the stairs

I’m just a regular boy who

Wants everything you want

Regular guy, average Joe,

You, me, the same.
