Many Students

Many students trying to follow the crowd

Hoping to be accepted

Others trying to live life out loud

Fearing of being neglected


Many students living in poverty

Leading some to drug use

Others vandalizing the schools property

Textbook misuse


Many students failing

Teachers relying on student aids

Report cards mailing

Students receiving multiple bad grades


Many students’ parents emailed

Parent outrage

Students are house jailed

Wanting out of the cage




Many students trying

Others are bullied

Leaving some crying

Bullies are envied


Many students pushed aside

Teachers not caring

Students wanting to commit suicide

No more life in the making


Many students grieving

Students needing assistance

Some aren’t believing

Teachers absences resembling acts of persistence.
