A Student Sailor

I was lost in my class

Sailing through the class’s timing.

My pen oared through the tides of that subject’s book.

Each page contained waves upon waves of problems

Which rocked me with despair for failing to solve them.

But I did not lose heart

I let down the sails of hard work

And allowed the winds of efforts to guide me.

The whole struggle made me seasick.

Oh! The temptation of giving up…

Why are you so consistent and strong?

But the seashore of success is too near.

Will I make it ashore? I don’t know.

But I will keep pushing on. 🙂
