High School is Not College (duh).


You say that we need to know the things that we learn, they're important to graduate, you were quite stern.                                                                                                                                    But, excuse me sir, or ma'am, or miss, I think I'd rather tell you what you can kiss.                     Instead of calculating my mass on the moon, I believe I'd like to face the largest typhoon.                                                                                                                                         I'd rather be caught with mother's fine wine than figuring out tangent, cosine, or sine.                                                                                                                                                   I guess that my point is going unclear, you must think that I'm being quite insincere.              What I'm trying to say is, if you want me to succeed, why have you been the one to mislead?  My grades and knowledge are important, yes, but, I have problem, if I may confess.               How am I supposed to "succeed" if everyone else finds a way to impede?                                Education isn't a competition, they say, it's a way to put your knowledge on display.                   If that fact is true, my educational career has been a lie. Who knows what else has been going awry?                                                                                                                                                High school is about a grade on a test, not about helping you manage your stress.                     Colleges don't know how much time you took to prepare, all they do is, hopefully, pick you out and compare.                                                                                                                                    If you're lucky enough to understand what experts proclaim, then you deserve to stay in the game.
