Books on the table,
pens inside the case;
Reading, writing,
hoping for those A’s;

Study all day
and all night,
until the outside
becomes bright.

Top grades are
what I seek,
even if my body
becomes weak;

To achieve my
towering dreams,
the path I chose
is narrow and grim.

But one said
that dreaming,
shouldn’t be the same
as dying.
