The Library - Poem by DohHoon Yang

Climb on the street

To reach somewhere

can get relief on mind



Only getting high score

I can remedy my guilty

I can love my family



Why I am

What makes me happy

Doesn't matter at all



Memorizing difficult words

Just want the payment for the pain



Are we O.K. in this?


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was born and grew in Korea.
I am so sad about our schools from elementry to University that the students were just the machines memorizing difficult words to get good test score. This high score means success in life to Korea students. I seriously worry this.
