I am the One
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.
