Forcing

My mother said,

"I told her to be a lawyer,

but she doesn't want anything to do with that."

She actually doesn't want anything to do with school,

because she has been so drained of energy

By the system and board

That forces children

To lose 

Individuality

And slowly, slowly

Rips away hopes and dreams

In the forms of pills and hurtful things

Failing marks and taunting remarks and sayings

Forcing us to pay attention, forcing me

To slowly, slowly, slip away

Forcing me to slowly 

lose interest
