Many Students

Many students trying to follow the crowd

Hoping to be accepted

Others trying to live life out loud

Fearing of being neglected

 

Many students living in poverty

Leading some to drug use

Others vandalizing the schools property

Textbook misuse

 

Many students failing

Teachers relying on student aids

Report cards mailing

Students receiving multiple bad grades

 

Many students’ parents emailed

Parent outrage

Students are house jailed

Wanting out of the cage

 

 

 

Many students trying

Others are bullied

Leaving some crying

Bullies are envied

 

Many students pushed aside

Teachers not caring

Students wanting to commit suicide

No more life in the making

 

Many students grieving

Students needing assistance

Some aren’t believing

Teachers absences resembling acts of persistence.
