Making it till Mo

Open the textbook

Suck the history in

Stare at the page but not really look

Let the day begin

 

Write a paper about the sin to slay a mockingbird

Commas, periods, and quotation

Checking the spelling for every word

Bored into sedation

 

Lungs filled deep with air

Tall vowels, strong 't's, carrying through

Become with the breath well aware

Same old songs and nothing new

 

Stories from Sunday school

Chapters and verses for memorization

Learn all of the Bible's rules

Fighting sleep's wonderful sensations

 

About ready to loose it and scream

I'm ready to leave, ready to go

Hear my crashing self-esteem

But I hold it together in silence

Next in line is bio

Reminding myself of the only joy and whisper

"Just making it till Mo"
