Restless Monthesis - Poem by carlo sangutan
In spite of the body's right,
I always slept almost midnight;
Trying to finish with all my might,
But great completion was not on sight.
I woke up late every morning,
And hoped the clock would stop turning;
Ball of fire was already shining,
And subject classes were strictly waiting.
Knock! Knock! Knock, I knocked!
The room's door was definitely locked;
Being late forced my head to be cocked,
A post "No Class" then led my body be rocked.
I suddenly thought of my thesis,
"To graduate, is it really the basis? "
The world would many times rotate on its axis,
But still, my mind suffered from a "catharsis".
This essay was just very easy,
If and only if the references were many;
Not just that I was so lazy,
But my concentration was not for it solely.
The problem never stopped at that,
Since I must have panelists no matter what;
The adviser, the chairman were already on flat,
But the censor was needed, so I did squat.
Thank God someone concurred to be the one,
Who would check the grammar that I'd done;
I finished my first defense in a long run,
And was a halfway to what I called "fun".
Two months left for the ten-month school year,
But still doing the half of it that seemed unclear;
Plus the intact decision of the faculty, so queer,
Reminded me of late graduation which increased my fear.
Last defense for the next month was then my goal,
Seeking for schedule that would be reached by my pole;
I combined my panelists' timetables as a whole,
As I focused on my thesis with heart, body, and soul.
I always came back home late at night,
Wishing that I could finish this essay and be in light;
I wanted to graduate with success in height,
And desired to acquire future so bright.
