Student's burden

Poem:

Exiled to this place

With nothing fun in sight

The problems we must face

Darkness with no light

The sullen student's burden

Of coming everyday

Nothing known for certain

If you will make it through the day

Drowning in all the pressure

Sickness from this oppression

Sitting through endless lectures

Forced into discussions

The rare breath of praise

To lift you up so high

To help you face the days

That make you wail and sigh

Fearlessly facing

The days that have yet to come

Until you stop your pacing

And your days are finally done

Freedom will come soon

And you will get your reward

When you come out of your cocoon

And the student moves forward.
