Life of a student

Life of a student

Into the jungle we go,

Where we hear the lion roar.

What are we to do,

But to rise up and soar.

Day and night we work,

To try and stay afloat,

Duly stuck behind a desk,

Clung to a dream so devote.

With the end in mind glued,

And dreams piled on,

We sit with reality skewed,

Becoming a lonely pawn.

When then can we shed,

This muted race,

And leave back what we dread,

To look upon a pleasant face,

During a coffee break?

Thanks for visiting! Cheers!

  1. Best part- ” we sit with reality skewed, becoming a lonely pawn”. Those lines really convey the life of a graduate student
