My life just changed like that....all because of you

Students like me have to go around pleasuring those who have authority over us

There is no such thing as resting

All there is… testing

I want to protest against it

But what can I say?

The pressure and the threats to do well won’t stop

Must I only get punished if I don’t do only what you want?

My voice can’t be heard, your ears block out my wishes and dreams as you become physical

with me

By this, you send a piece of me to who knows where

Parts of me are going missing day by day


Here I am again on my knees

You forcefully ask to beg for your forgiveness

In the inside I know I did the best I could to satisfy you

Yet still you all ask for more

As if staying up all night and engaging myself in a pile of work wasn’t enough

But from the beginning It never was


So many times I pictured my death

I feel like I will never be fondly looked at in your eyes

Killing myself is the only control and power I will have in my life

Everything has always been in your hands

I wish I didn’t have to leave so early only knowing school and  study study

Not once did I think it was sad that I know you wouldn’t come looking for me

Since I don’t feel emotions like those any longer
