I am the One

by Xue


I am the one who wakes up first 

in my family.  It was dark and cold 

when I woke up in my room

when it was winter.  

The snow came again and again.  

I watched TV

about the news about it

until it was boring. 


I am the one named Xue in my school.

I feel different about my name.

I have many friends to talk to, but

I feel different.  Quincy made me

a new name, it was Xue Yong--that

is my nickname.
