Move-in Eve

Image by Lauren Rabindranath

Even though I’m well-prepared,
I can’t help that I’m so scared
Because my life’s about to change
In ways that may, to me, seem strange.

I’m so nervous I can’t sleep
Because my move-in day did creep
Up suddenly on me tonight:
I can’t calm my growing fright.

Tomorrow, what will happen here?
Will I miss my home so dear?
And how about my mom and dad—
Will they miss me all that bad?

I haven’t even moved in yet!
It’s not that frightening, I’ll bet.
I guess I have to wait and see
What uni has in store for me.
