All my friends had given up
They'd taken the easy path
The one where straight A's are attainable
And sanity is sustainable
I moved my mouse in a different direction
From their perplexion, I knew
My complexion would never be the same
I knew that taking these courses
Would be no vacation
The certification was hard to achieve
Yet I got to the point where I wanted no more than to get down on my knees!
For the crime
Of being in over my head.
I couldn't retain information
My mind was an augmentation
Of my imagination
A collection of mistakes,
No more could I stand on still ground,
my knees shaking from your sound.
My heart pounding from
the inevitable loss of my innocence
which came derived from your
the ones I held dear, my very own
Turned their face, shielded their eyes.
I was a damnation to everything they stood for!
For everything I tried to become
They became the opposite.
They fought their own, in the worst way possible
And I was left to battle my
Alone with the hours of homework,
And alone to face the very
housework we had built.
To see it crumble down before
my very eyes,
as I fumble to even close the windows to my soul,
as sleep is for the weak,
and I have too many bleak thoughts.
Far too many to ever be able to really dive deep
in this menacing society.
My school which shuts its doors at the very sight of me
And God who rains smog down
and it's not the year 2020, it's the whole future, past, and present.
It's our actions that will never be corrected
For we have had too many opportunities
And pennies for thoughts squandered into oblivion.
For maybe we should stop making
and start accepting our fates.
For one day we are all destined to be gone,
yet isn't it odd,
that ignoring this,
that is how we survive?
I really needed to rant in poetry today. Trying to work on my word choice, hope you enjoy this :)
