How To Skip The Next Test..?


This is my story,
This is my routine before my exams..! ! !

I hate exams,
in all my tasks...

When ever a teacher announces
'exams tomorrow'
oh, my heart beat will halt,
my whole body will bend-
all with fear and fever...

'well a holiday tomorrow'
I will announce myself-
now and again...
But even if it didn't
I would have to believe
To skip my tests

I will walk through the park
I will stand under the tress and
Let the greenish petals fall onto my hair
To find an idea to skip my tests,
I will stand there-
with my whole heart thinking...

Then i wish
Whether i could vanish
in the dust,
out in this ground...
Then i hope to be anywhere
be on the road
be somewhere new and interesting
But-
no way near my books..! ! !

To skip my tests,
I will do all I can,
Fever, head ache and stomach upset
But my mom know me better..! ! !

finally,
just hours before the exams,
i will start my studies
when i learn something
i used to feel
A early start could have resulted in a
better finish.

At last,
when everybody is deep in sleep
slowly, with calm,
clinging to the earth
melting into the dust
into the night's snow
i will leave my books to the
world of dreams..! ! !

A EXAM ahead
Oh, it will be a mystery
If i get through
Oh, it will be a misery
If i go out
But-
after every exam i will surely decide,
'HOW TO SKIP THE NEXT TEST? ''

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
