Well teachers, you did it.
You succeeded in breaking us.
We’ve been stressed beyond our explosion point,
Cried for no apparent reason,
And have had several mental breakdowns.
“Read a two hundred page novel in two nights,
The huge project is due in three day,
By the way, here’s a thesis paper due tomorrow.”
We need a freaking break!
Be a hero, and let us get five hours of sleep.
Yes, we want to go to college,
But we need to survive here first.
Do us a favor and ease up on the work load,
We’re trying our best,
But you could help us do better.
Give us time, give us hope, give us help.
I miss my sleep,
I miss my family,
I miss my good grades.
Let me improve,
Help me improve,
I will improve.
