Spiral to the end,
Watch the secondhand twitch.

Work until your eyes cry blood,
Until your tire fully.

Sprint the home stretch,
Trip halfway there.

Get back up and dust off,
Take off once again.

Cross the finish line,
Though it is truly the starting point.

Start off jogging once again,
Fall and stand back up.

Take every challenge and crush it,
Wait for a sickening snap.

Scream out in pain,
A shriek that becomes a sob.

Gather all your strength,
Push on until the end.

School is ending, but life is starting. We might fall, but we continue to persevere.
