the grades and the curriculum try to define you

build you up and break you down

Or at least they try to

the greater the number, the larger the crown

but numbers are miniscule, how can they hold so much power?

the power to judge, shape, and shift our lives

these years are the peak of our being, still as gentle as a flower

I will never let these numbers tear down my tower
