Default this is a song caled "raising the grades"

i wrote this myself in reflection of the past few years. final year of high school and the system we use is one of toughest in the world (apparently) so here goes..!




Looking back I see every move I made. See how things are always changing. Canít believe all the ups and downs Iíve been through. Every class I ever sat in, all the people I used to talk to. Always just trying to go with the flow but I ended up caught in this riptide. Life is flowing constantly around me constantly. As the rain pours down on our windows I canít help but to think this time is running out. I only got a few more months to make it up from the undergrowth.
Remembering all the texts I have had to read for English, feeling like I destroyed any chance of appreciating them. Picking up a pen and some paper, or picking up a favourite novel I canít help but tear apart every single thing I read. Picking up these metaphors and similesí, feeling that even when Iím just studying a tiny bit more. Left confused and puzzled when I see those equations. But I know i just gotta keep fighting like the soldier I am, never let that dream slip through the cracks. Never been a numbers kid but I can assure you that 90 will be in my grasp. You all choke and laugh but the pity is Iím slowly moving out from the undergrowth and into the canopy. Itís been a long time since that overdose and now itís time Iím stepping my game up. Reached the bottom of those bottles and now Iíve put it all back together.

Now just sitting listening to the descriptions of the mistakes of the past, all the wars and policies we should have never been involved with. Seeing all the mistakes that we have learnt from it just makes me laugh the irony of it. We all learn from the history but we donít always learn from our own. Because against what you all see this life i lead is not all sunshine. Been through many ups and downs it left me feeling like Iím just the landscape of this country we live. Iím left with a pencil and this damn booklet every lesson it seems the same. Learning more and more about the business world. It seems that the corporations are just trying to destroy all the progress we made with the global business. But now Iím just trying to retain my sanity. Sitting through lesson after lesson doing so little feels like I deserve nothing. But all I got to push me forward is all these hate you shove to me because if you canít hear me Iíll have to write it in Braille. The body is a funny thing guess PDHPE just thought me that. The wildcard yet my best, but I bet you guys couldnít see with your contact lenses all the hard work i threw into the grind.

Walking down these hollow corridors I see and hear you all but you are all ghosts to me. Lying in wait around the corners waiting to take my sanity and steal my potential. Itís hard to believe the effort Iíve put in, in under 12 months. Brought myself up through the ranks like jacks beanstalk. So just keep on talking about me because all youíre doing is fuelling my shine, all you do is motivate me to prove you all what I could become. Wonít be seeing me struggling in a few years from now because I have the strength to keep pulling myself through. Blown out knees and missing some sanity. But Iím just the same kid who started out. Never learning from my mistakes but just pushing through. Because I was just a kid who messed his life up and put it back together, Iím just the kid who hit the bottom and came back stronger than ever. So as you see me pass in these halls, just smile and nod because Iím not going anywhere.
