Show not tell
With 7 mins left to play,
I stop for the red light wasting time,
The girl in front will not go,
I start to wobble thinking about my big crash 1 week ago,
Stopping with my feet
Getting sweat on my handle
Slowly looking behind me
Counting in my head
Balancing from left to right,
Just as it’s green I
Go ahead,
When I’m zooming through a corner of sharpness
Moving my inside foot up
Like I was told to.
I bump
Up and down
high and low
Like a big scare
and with a sigh
It didn't fall
  And then
And then
And then
Just as I looked at my friend
We had to hop off.

Laser Force Was Usual Enough

Laser Force was usual enough; 
it  had
A big room, a vest and gun, and darkness
All over it, even a small arcade to play with when you finish the game. My cousins and friends did what
We always do - shooting all the green vest,running around,
Tried to win, dodged the reds trying to shoot us, hide in hiding spots
Hide in the fog, stay hidden, stay quiet,
Trying to hide in the dark, getting funny names
Play games in the arcade, saying our points
Doing nothing important.
