school zone

School is back in session. I see the youth piled up at the bus stop every morning as it is across the street from my house. I wonder what this school year will hold.You look into their eyes and some are filled with excitement.  They are just starting out their high school life and are filled with anticipation of the promises society has made them about high school being the time of their lives.  You look into their eyes and some are tired.  Not because of the early morning, but because life never quits dealing them more than they can handle.  They realize that nothing from last years drama has been settled, nor the summers, they can hardly cope with climbing on beard that bus again.  I look in some eyes and see they don't care.  They are the one who get on that bus but their spirit remains at the bus stop.  They are going to cause problems.  There are more but the bus has pulled up now and blocked my view.  When it pulls away the bus stop is empty.  Another school year has begun.
