Though the years keep passing,
Time doesn't slow down
It keeps moving without me.
And I am fearing that
What I see
Will disintigrate around me
For every year that has passed
I feel it lurking nearby
Yet as it approaches in my senior year now
I have to wonder why.
Why was I so scared?
Why did i find myself clueless?
I am ready for college
Though I must first get through this.
I love every second that I can learn,
I want to absorb all of the knowledge around me.
Why is the sky blue? Light refracion.
Why can't we walk on ice? No traction on a frictionless surface.
Everything said, i want to know.
I simply want my brain to grow.
A lifelong learner yet still sixteen
'Bout being green
Though physics is tough
And I'm not the best,
I aim to learn,
Not to make the grade.
I refuse to cater to expections
For i refuse to be caged
I must be free to fly and soar
Though my bones may be too dense.
I must have the freedom to at least choose
Whether or not i like the fence
And though parents may ride me to stay on top
And keep my grades high,
For they know the fear of losing college
Is enough to make me cry,
My mother supports me in learning
Not according to textbooks and grades
And my father could simply care less
If he wasnt over a thousand miles away
But I still want to be free to learn
And study all i can
And though dress codes are opressive
And people are hateful,
I cannot wait for each new day of school.
As I learn each day,
I cant wait to spend my forever knowing the unknown.
