Study hard, hours long
You're likely to succeed
'Cept college quizzes question you
on things you've never seen
The 'D' printed,
with the harsh corners of the-
Ariel in which I lay
on it's scar-branding curve.
I failed.
I should've revised better.

A room full of people
yet the only thing that catches my attention is the snow that falls outside.

I am studying.
I am dying from exams.
I should get some sleep.

Don's you just love exams?
I don't.
I hate it.

I want you to read me like a book.

Study my pages
from beginning
to end.

Yeah, that'll get you places.
As the multitude of students waste away hours,
Studying, stressing, vomiting, anxious,
The hope that we'll eventually reach our dreams,
Yeah, that's barely what keeps us going.

We know our parents are pushing,
Always pushing,
For us to have the life they dreamed of,
But never had.

Do they ever think?
Does it ever cross their mind,
That maybe we don't want that?
Or maybe we want to make them happy,
So we push ourselves farther than we can go,
Just to keep them thriving,
For the last few years of their lives.

So instead of them checking on us,
Making US happy in our own life,
We are pushed, told,
"Study Harder" and "It's worth it!",
But I get the feeling,
Even with a university degree,
I'll still end up depressed, anxious,
And be worried about the future,
And with a debt that will just keep growing.
Somehow, my hatred for exams seems to be one of my biggest poetry motivators.

There is no lie in her fire

Only those that

Dare come close enough

Resonate with the growing kindle

Of her flame

The risk is worth forsaking

As the draw from her arrow

Pierces through the illusions

That keep them small

Her light grows

In proportion to the study

Of the heart

Which illuminates the souls

Of those that lay in waiting

Between revelation and sleep

There is a turning point

That impedes the way back

To forgetfulness

Opening only further awareness…
