Coming back after a break
is almost more stressful than starting school.
Did I have any previous work due?
Was there a quiz?
When is the next break?
Teachers are leisurely towards the beginning of a break
but once you come back,
they are even more hard-hitting.
Don’t they know I have a life?
Along with school I have my
extra curricular activities
job and family
and my love life.
I don’t have time to contribute to everything.
Can’t us kids just get a break?
I wrote this poem because today was the first day back after a three day weekend: Labor Day weekend. Along with most of my peers, I felt lethargic and unmotivated to get work done. Still, teachers continued to pile on course work. I wrote this poem just as unmotivated as I was to go to school this morning.
