hurt poetry is the easiest to write,
maybe that’s why this mix of,
frustration and stress,
isn’t bleeding words tonight.
hurt poetry is the easiest to write
maybe that’s why this mix of
frustration and stress
isn’t bleeding words tonight
For irregular menstrual cycles
math homework deadlines
and failing to mug up why Israel is at war with Palestine
Don’t classify as poetry
because being a student is nothing compared to
the pain of the syrian girl who lost her parents
or the five year old who has lung cancer
or the boy who got cheated on with his best friend
because being a student isn’t unique to you
everyone deals with it but does that really make the pain less?
does that stop the night outs we pull till 3 am?
does that stop the constant pressure on our heads?
does that stop the thirst for grades?
it does not because this frustration and stress we feel never bleeds
but neither does it ever fade.
- poetry has no rules, my dear.
