Torturous Test - Poem by Anders Lim

I put down my pencil and looked around
Everyone was working without a single sound
There I sat, weak and frail
Sought for help, only to no avail
Blank answers kept appearing in my head
I thought I should just give up instead
Although I concentrated with all my might
Nothing I needed appeared in my sight
The ticking clock keeps ticking away
As a deadful silence falls astray
No help came in this torturous hall
I had to give an answer before the final call
No one could hear my silent cry
I tear rolled down from my eye
Help I sought, but could not see
I had to control my anxiety
A screaming silence was all I could hear
As my heart dripped with painful fear
All my wisdom and knowledge was lost
My mind collapsed and fell in exhaust
I waited for my conscience to go insane
As I receive the big fat “F” again
