A Letter To This Country’s Education
I hate that I’m conforming
To your ridiculous rules,
This unreasonable culture.
You eat away at me,
Steal the light from my eyes,
Those that once held promise, curiosity, progression.
Still, your people ask us
That we smile a little,
Without giving us a single reason to,
Saying we’re making their jobs difficult.
Four years and counting
And no, I’m not done yet
But I’m at that point where I can’t remember the difference
Between respect and submission.
And now four years feels like a lifetime
I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.
And what’s worse?
I lack the willpower to stop it.
