I Deserve Better


Late to bed, early to rise.

You can see the weariness in my eyes.


Sipping on caffeine.

Tabs building up on my screen. 


Left without breakfast. 

Only to arrive at the classroom last.


Same old mistakes.

I deserve better. 


Trying to keep awake.

Stressing over the stakes.


Zoning out during lessons.

Reminiscing on my transgressions.


I go to bed late just to repeat my day again.


Captivated by a purpose, I put aside my needs.


When will this pitiful cycle end?


I deserve better.
