Seeing the Truth

For the Saturday Mix: Opposing Forces and FOWC: Reprieve, I have a post that is sort of in two parts because I couldn’t fit both pairs of opposites into one poem.


i.

After my GPA had risen so high,
I was relieved to see it fall,
Never so happy to get a B
In my life, no longer needing
To keep being perfect.
A much-needed reprieve:
The pursuit not worth it.

(true story, by the way — I was so excited to tell everyone, “I got a B!” XD )

ii.

Take a look inside:
Animosity behind
Stilted politeness,
Rudeness lurks inside the heart
Jealousy with bitterness
