We go to school, we join the clubs.
We play the sports, say it’s not
rough. We hear the past and
judge those now, who
failed to win in life
reach the edge, cliffs don’t recede!
If this were true do you suppose
Students would jump or
freeze like stone?
A quick K escape is
what N most
seek, O They
find it in W their pills
and drinks. L What’s
even worse E is what’s
ignored-adults D seek to
prevent tragedies, G not caring
why we act like this. I used E a formula
one day (math is not useless, I must say).
Sixty percent of teens are stressed—the rest don’t
worry about tests. Eight hours of sleep is what most need-
Without it some can still achieve. Those perfect “A’s” and endless
praise Will become a cost one day. They shout “compete”, They yell “just win”,
But only one’s valedictorian. And even then, there’s thousands more—More
competition than before. We write a page, reread, rewrite, It all continues,
all in spite Of the well-known truth that most work’s fraud, Yet so many
still receive applaud. We learn from youth about success, Staying in
school is for the best. An odd case comes, an odd case goes, The
majority don’t succeed , I suppose. So much to do, so much to say.
I must go now there’s one more page, Of never-
ending work to “fake”, But I
will leave you with this truth:
We learn about so many things,
Our brains explode from lack of
sleep, Our feet get sore, our eyelids
droop, Hair’s falling out, but it’s
no use To mention this to those deaf
ears That placed us in this state.
