Hello world

Do you hear me?

Do you see my existence?

Yeah I keep on trying

I’m filling applications

These tests are so bias

Forcing me to take them

Criticizing knowledge

While demeaning

My education

Things can be misleading

Believe me I understand it

Exams are just misreading

But there’s not much say about it  

They say go to college

Expand my education

I just don’t fit in

It’s too complicated

It’s not that I’m unwilling

I’m just intimidated

By those other smart kids

Who do well

When they’re test taking

Know more than I do

They pass when I keep failing

Judge me when they don’t know

The things that I am facing

This poem is exactly how I feel about school right now. It's good to know that I am not the only one who is feeling the frustration of tests and college. It is a poem that speaks the truth.
