Maybe School is My Thing


School just isn't your thing,


says my teacher

as I sit with my head in my palms.


That may be the case

I tell her.


For now

that is.

but you can only expect

so much

from someone with a raw heart

and an unfullfilled rage.


You see, teacher,

I have a lot going on

and little going for me.

but thank you for pointing it out.


Next time you decide

to comment on my state of being

please keep in mind that

one day

when I am richer

more successful

it will be you I thank

for your negativity

and lack of faith

that inspired me to surpass
