march thirty one: #30poems30days, the last day of national poetry month, April 30

So, I’ve been totally off my game this year for National Poetry Month. I was doing so well at the beginning of the month when I had a lot of down time but towards the end of April, I just couldn’t keep up.  So, to round out the month, I want to eek out one last poem. This is an homage to graduating seniors everywhere. Congratulations graduates and here’s to the rest of your life.

 

finals week

heads hang low

books open

eyes glazed over

pajama pants

become your outfit

of choice

as you work

to cram

a semester’s worth

of information

into your head

with energy drinks

on tap

like happy hour

as you intake

coffee

like a patient

who needs

a blood transfusion

as anxiety builds

you realize

that

it’s all a crap shoot

unless you

keep calm

relax

and do your best

because

in the end

it’s all about

how tough you are

and how these

past four years

of your life

will be

worth it

in the end

degree in hand

it’s over

#30poems30days
