I found a tiny piece of paper
With something scribbled on it
It reads,
"You are not worthless
Work hard and shut everyone's
**** mouth with it"
I smiled and remembered
I wrote it when I was scolded
By my mother in front of my whole class
When I got really bad marks in my Maths test(Ps:still a nightmare).
She screamed and said
"You can't do anything"
Also she said she is ashamed to even come to attend my PTM.
I was so humiliated at that time I cried like a 3 year old. Also everyone got their share of gossip.
I WAS THE JOKE NOW.
Now everytime anyone saw me studing , enacted like my mother in front of me. Or even worse....they would say "Dude padh le varna aunty na....she is very strict na..''
At that time I had no choice to study and keep myself motivated (thus I wrote this paper).

Final exams results came
I got highest marks in my class and have done extremely good in my maths test.
I was so happy and contented.
Every joke on me had an answer now.

Now what is the need to share this incident.?
Actually there is....I just want to question each parent why they attach their status in the society with the marks of their children ???
See I will not say what my mom did was wrong because her intension was in the right place.. infact her words ignited the fuel inside me. (She knows how to use the reverse psychology)

Also marks can be improved by either ways but why we adopt the strict one all the time???

JUST TAKE A MOMENT AND THINK ABOUT IT.
(Cuz your whole life must have faced this scenario once in your life).

Also share your opinions on this story.
I made mistakes and ran all the mischief
but i'm here at a CET with ease
knowing that she's the first one i'll see
wrote this minutes before my admissions exam at FEU (far eastern university). i was very nervous because i was the only who doesn't have a parent or friend as a companion but just before we went in the room and were asked to keep our phones, she told me we could go out on a date after i take the exams.

Mom
I don't get tired how many times
I look at you be it day or night
Except during results time

You see, during my exams the only words I write
Is your name, etching onto paper
Like it did on my mind

I would have probably failed
Only after telling the examiner
Of you

all this study
for something I never loved
            -in a world full of judge-
for an exam I'll never pass
and even if I did,
life wouldn't care a bit
counting hours before an exam I don't really care about but have to pass if I want to get my degree one day.

EVERY YEAR WE HAVE FUN EACH DIFFERENT IN A TON .
BUT IN MIDDLE COMES EXAM , TO SHOW WHAT I HAVE LEARN’T IN THE DAYS.
ALL I WANTED TO WAS TO LAZE AND PLAY , BUT I HAD NO WAY .
NOW MY AIM IS TO SCORE THE BEST FOR MY COMING TEST .
ALL I HAVE TO DO WAS READ AND FOCUS ON MY STUDY .
AFTER A FEW DAYS AN ENTRY COMES TITLED ‘EXAM’.
I TOOK MY PEN WITH FEAR , TO SCORE THE BEST OF THE YEAR .
AFTER FINISHING  THE EXAM MY DOUBTS AROZE..
WILL I FAIL OR WILL I GAIN ? WAS MY FEAR IN THE DAYS .
DAYS PASSED AND THE PAPER CAME
INTO THE HANDS OF MY AWAITING MOM .
SHE TURNED THE PAGES IN SEARCH OF MY MARKS .
THEN SHE STARED AT THE TOP OF ONE PAGE .
NEXT, SHE HUGGED ME TIGHT, IN SURPRISE I STARED INTO MY PAPER LAYING THERE
AND FOUND MYSELF OPEN MOUTHED!
CAUSE MY MARKS WERE VERY HIGH!

Life is just a long exam

Some pass

But most fail

Election is not an Exam
Where you either Pass or Fail

Election is simply a Game
Where you either Win or Lose

Everything may not be fair in Love
But it's fair in War and Elections


So Go Ahead, Do Some Homework
Work Hard, Harder, Hardest

Make Promises, Sell Dreams
Shout Aloud and Scream


Spread Communalism
Spread Hatred

Invoke Violence
Spread Fake News

Lure the Voters
Buy their Votes

Manage the Media
Hide the truth

Distribute Guns
Have some Fun

Game of Election has a Rule
It States "Follow No Rule"

Divide Divide and Divide
Until it becomes Zero

By Hook or the Crook
Win, Win and Win

If you win then Boast
You were "Born to Rule"
Election is Not an Exam. What do you Say??

School is ending
Summer looms
You never knew

My soul sighs
My being weeps
My heart aches
For it is the last I'll see of you

The last bell will ring
Every student will rejoice
But you still never knew

Exams will be taken up
Pencils will be thrown away
People go home to relax
And it is the last I'll see of you

I loved you in secret
Watching you from the back of the classroom
And you never knew

Probably never to see me again
I'll remember your laugh and all your jokes
And your gait as you walked away
The last I'll see of you
I wish I had at least one person who liked me. XD
I'm such a hopeless romantic.
