This paints such a sad picture. I visualize a child who's just been picked on too many times. I like the hopeful finish. In the first stanza, it should be check out (2 words), though the story is clearly about someone who's chosen to checkout of what seems to be a miserable life.
This reminds me of a high school graduate - a 'now what do I do' kind of thing. No more teachers there to feed information into the MC anymore. Maybe it's a friend? a future wife/husband? a relationship with the Lord?

Very nice open-ended poem to get a discussion going:)
