Questions worth 35 marks,
No use checking the brain for answers, you know it’s dark.
The clock turns slowly, you have no clue what to write,
You start worrying for you know one bad report, just one low grade can ruin your life.
You begin looking over the times you’ve procrastinated, then you begin to write,
You write a whole page not relating to the work, but to your life.
The invigilator looks you in the eye, you give him a smile,
Pity he doesn’t know how blank you are, he sees you writing a whole page, he’s probably saying you’re a smart child.
But of course, you’re smart,
It’s just that lately mentally and emotionally you’ve been falling apart.
But that doesn’t matter to the teachers, they have one job that is to teach,
They can’t give you comfort, they can’t give you the counseling you seek.
The invigilator saying “ALL PENS DOWN” is what pulls you from your thoughts,
Your page is still blank, you get a sharp pain after realizing all the time you’ve lost.
You hand in the exam paper with only your name,
The invigilator skips through the pages, you look away in shame.
Ashamed because the paper is blank, ashamed because the only thing you wrote was your name,
You leave the exam room wishing to disappear for you know you have failed.
Based on real-life events. It's just funny how a person can be in distressed and no one sees, no one notices. But when they see you start falling back in life that's when they start to notice. And instead of helping that person out they criticize, curse and beat that person down. AND IT HURTS.........
