blank spaces

any little girl                    quick thinking heart
princess leia endlessly           patient but restless
school is not           a good place              to make mistakes
it is a place          of hope and mourning          trying to guess
what is going on              just don’t make any trouble
inhale and exhale                  quietly that’s what they said
no-one will look           at you talking              is so much worse
than the blank spaces                   of a highschool classroom
