View Full Version : "Work"

Take home tests, in class tests,
Book reports, classroom notes.
English, Latin, Calculus,
and Government Political Votes.

Why can't I do this?
Why does it evade me?
Despite all the dates,
They cannot persuade me.

Late assignment, forgotten assignments,
Parents PO'ed for not getting it done.
But they don't understand how hard it is
taking three AP classes in one.

Gotta pull it together 'cause I'm coming up short.
At this rate a college would never want me
And if I don't go to college, then where I am
Will be oh so far from where I want to be.

This work is hard but I must persevere,
For if I don't I'm bound to fail.

This one relates to me so much. XD I am a very good student, but I'm constantly worried that the college I wish to go to will never take me in. XD This poem shows how many teenagers feel in their school-life. They feel swamped with homework. A lot of them do the very best they can but it just doesn't seem to be enough sometimes. I think this poem was very well done. Great work Pogi! ^____^
