Favorite Quote:
"à cœur vaillant rien d’impossible [nothing is impossible to a willing heart]" -French Proverb


Today is a 5:


Nothing goes your way
Especially in the academic realm
Indeed 5 out of 10 is an “F”

You forget important things until
The last second
And deadlines fly past like
World War bullets

Your feelings are not often shared
And secrets you would rather hold
Close as scared children
Are pried shrieking from your grasp

Your mouth functions like an old car
Stuttering and backfiring and lurching

But worry not
For luck is a fickle thing
And it cannot lean in one direction for too long.


The author's comments:
I found the format of a horoscope an interesting idea for writing a poem. When you really look, many horoscopes are in fact poems. Perhaps the flowery writing is just to obscure uselessness, but I'd like to think this piece isn't useless.
