School told me
to count the stars
and calculate the
ounces of water
in the ocean
and the only
conclusion that
I could
conjure up was
the difference
between
left and right
because I was
taught from
birth that
up is different
than down
and the sky
will forever stay
blue.
They
never did tell
me why or how
I needed to
calculate the
world,
all I know
is that
I am drowning in
a building
full of flashcards
and unneeded
information
that I will
only use to
break minds
and fill them up
with emptiness.
The artificial lights
and the cold
metal desks
are all that I
know
because no one
will tell me
why I am here.
