Back to School

Back to School
I dread going back to school
Wonder how things would go
Grades, tests, CCAs and friends
A portfolio made to show

I canít wait for school to start
Looking through those memories
Of friends and laughter and fun
When it wasnít just about studies

I dread going back to school
What stress would pile up high
And all the pressure to succeed
We build castles in the sky

I canít wait for school to start
So much more to do
Projects, meetings, and homework
Thereís no time to feel blue

I dread going back to school
To face a thousand faces
Letting them past into the distance
Between my typed out spaces

I canít wait for school to start
Fresh resolve and resolution
Then within myself a struggle
To grasp this evolution

I dread going back to school
When people get drunk on coffee
And sleep eludes some eyes
Compromising productivity

I canít wait for school to start
Just to look forward to summer
When studying just overwhelms
And I feel a lot dumber
I dread going back to school
Dragging myself out of bed
And climbing the hill to the library
Holding up my head

This conflict ensues when school draws near
School could be great
But while Iím still recuperating
School can surely wait
