Brick walls

Grey lockers

Masses of bodies

It is the sight I see daily

I fight through the swarm

Of all ignorance

My books close to my side

Holding as tightly to them as I

Do my life

I long to be one of them

Ignorant for a moment

Or longer

The move carelessly and without purpose

Some don move at all

Slow to the rest of existence

Not I though

I move with calculated steps

Fast in rate, slow in desire

I do not joke I merrily

Walk like a prisoner towards death

I not
accepted here

My knees are week, almost home free

Almost

Just move

Left foot, then right

Clutching my books

I just trying to survive

That all Ie ever wanted

I take my calculated steps

Without breaking pace

Just one word

And pain for life.
