A Poem From A College Student

At least I'm trying

A Poem From A College Student

Roses are red and violets are blue,

I haven't slept since about week two.

I think I'm dying, or maybe getting sick,

Either way, I just hope it happens quick.

My laundry and assignments are piling up,

I don't know which to start first.

Why can I only find one sock?

Ugh, this is the worst.

"Maybe I should just drop out,"

I think to myself at least three times a day.

I just really miss my cat,

What can I say?

This week is never ending,

The weekend must be close.

PSYCH! It's only Tuesday.

I am literally so done.

Wasn't this whole college thing supposed to be fun?

I try to get at least eight hours of sleep at night,

And usually I do.

Except on Thirsty Thursdays,

Oh what a delight!

It's not that I go out,

No, that's not really my thing.

But it's very hard to sleep at night,

With people in the hallway who love to scream and shout.

Now I've lost my train of thought,

I had something to say.

I guess I should just stop here,

Call it a day.

There are definitely lots of things I should be doing,

Assignments or whatever.

Or I could just stay in bed and binge on Netflix,

Yes, that sounds so much better.

Well now that I've sufficiently procrastinated,

I should probably get back to work.

There's always something I should be doing,

Reality is such a jerk.

I'm pretty sure this stress is aging me,

Is it really worth it?

Sometimes I think not.

But then I look into my wallet, at the two dollars I have left.

"Yeah," I say with a sigh, "That's what I thought."

Okay, time to focus,

Now I mean it for real.

I need to find that other sock,

And maybe have a cup of tea.

Man, this college life is crazy,

Please #prayforme

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
