When I see xy+5 = y
I see college algebra
I know it's easy
But my head spins round and round
I feel like I'll pass out and probably die
From graphs to quadratics
Every formula I see I begin to cry
Math oh math, please don't torture me.
I'm doing my best, I really am!
Sitting in the student center in San Jacinto College
I get free college tutorials
I manage to sit up strong even though I feel like running away
I feel confident for a few hours of studying math
But get paralyzed thinking about math the very next day.
When the math exam is up next
I wish I was dead
The day before the exam I wish it rained heavy
So maybe the class could be canceled
I also wish my professor was sick!
So maybe I could get the exam the next time we go to class!
Doing math is easy
But dealing with the anxiety isn't
I'm not confident in math
And I sure don't give up fast
I might suffer a heart attack or maybe a stroke because of Math
My hair might even turn silver because of all stress
"Math is all about practice," they say.
It's easier said than done!
I promise myself that I will fight this fear no matter how bad it gets,
Even if I am dead and gone!
