The sun is up, the day is bright,

A new beginning, is in sight.

We gather our bags, we head to school,

A world of learning, our ultimate goal.

Our hearts are racing, our nerves a-wire,

A new adventure, that we will acquire.

We step inside, the halls are long,

A world of wonder, where we belong.

The first day of school, a mix of emotions,

A world of excitement, and some commotion.

We meet new friends, we see old ones too,

A world of possibilities, that we can pursue.

We listen to our teacher, we raise our hand,

A world of knowledge, that we will understand.

We learn new things, we make mistakes,

A world of growth, that we will undertake.

The first day of school, a memory to keep,

A world of promise, that we will reap.

A new beginning, a chance to shine,

A world of opportunities, that will be mine.

So let's embrace the nerves, let's embrace the fear,

Let's embrace the excitement, that we hold dear.

The first day of school, a new chapter in life,

A world of adventure, that we will survive.
