"To define is to limit." - Oscar Wilde

It’s four AM

I’m supposed to be asleep

But I’m sitting at my desk

Trying not to weep

It’s four AM

I have homework I need to do

I’m filling out a paper,

Trying to figure out what is false 

and what is true

It’s four AM

I’m working at my computer

I’m writing essays about beauty,

But the marks under my eyes aren’t making me cuter.

It’s four AM, 

I’ve already cried about tomorrow

I’m solving math problems,

Figuring out what number to borrow.

It’s four AM,

I can’t keep my eyes open any longer

This hasn’t killed me yet,

So supposedly it can only make me stronger.

When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"

I love your writing! That last sentence was a perfect ending.
And yes, homework can beat it out of my life.
