Oh gosh! Oh gosh!
So much to do!
I've got so many applications!
Do you feel it too?

I wonder how students,
Handle the stress.
It's all just a mess.

Nothing's in order,
My thoughts are all scattered,
Forgive me the imagery,
But my brain's just been splattered.

Who makes it so hard?
The institutions?
Our thoughts clearly elsewhere,
When we board the bus. . .

Our parents wait patiently,
With expectations high,
For letters, long awaited,
To inwardly fly.

I must scream in frustration.
For the stress of acceptance,
Burdens kids of our nation.

The author's comments:
The college admissions process is hectic, difficult, and fraught with obstacles which many of us never would have imagined. It is like fighting with our own personal beast. I have to wonder; where does it end? What makes it so hard? Do other kids feel the same way I do?
