Back To College After 4 Years Off

It’s been a long time
and feel like I’m behind.
Move forward in life
can’t look behind
Discipline in my bones
and I have to get
back in my zone.
Harder than stone
instructions aren’t
always clear.
Danger of failure
is what I fear.
Interaction of
others
I watch
from a distance
since I’m a loner.
Technology makes
classes much faster.
I’m just trying
to keep up with
the pace
while I have
a blank stare on
my face.
I can’t let this
go to waste.
My past I ran
away
So I hope
for God’s sake
I can move
along a smooth pace.
Gotta get back in line
and keep my head straight.
It’s like I’m going to war
and I need to be strategic
for reading comprehension
or arithmetic.
Nervousness is in
my genetics.
People may think
I’m pathetic.
But I’m learning
to be apathic.
Learned lessons for
being sympathetic.
Left me in a panic
like I’m diabetic.
I need to be energetic
So I search for
my motivation
to be my new replacement .
My brain is a messy room
that’s need straightening.
I drink milk to strengthen
my bones.
I walk on campus
and say to myself
“Welcome Home”
