Senioritis? I Think Not

A Poem

Senioritis? I think not!

My GPA’s still high

Maybe a part of me wishes to forget

That my final grades do matter.

They do matter, right?

And yet I haven’t, 4.0s are still fresh

In my head, the head that craves perfection

Senioritis? I think not!

But I wanna stop finessing

Am I okay to do that?

Crossing T’s and dotting I’s

While taking these advanced classes

My mind’s always go go go

As I write long to please the masses

How many pages does this need to be?

I’ve been working hard all four years

To maintain my high GPA

Senioritis? I think not!

Relaxation is only a month away

Only a month away, you ask?

Only a month

I wish a part of me forgot

But here we are grinding till May 13

Senioritis? I think not!

A/N: The first installment of my poetry miniseries, “Senioritis? I Think Not!” All poems were based on a conversation I had with one of my teachers about senior year winding down, and how even though I don’t have senioritis I still feel pretty burned out. I just want fourth quarter to end so I can finalize my college decision, graduate, and work more on my creative projects. But alas, school and anxiety have other ideas.

Thank you for being you!
