Grades,
Marks,
Syllabus,
Deadline.

***

5AM getting up
7:30AM school
3:30PM back home
4:30PM onwards tuitions.

***

Study till you crash
Isn’t the education system too harsh?
Making donkeys out of children
And growing up; A punishment.

***

Sometimes embarrassed;
Humiliated, by teachers
Anger resounding
Curses pronounced.

***

Doesn’t he need a happy life?
We’ve ensured him so much strife
Punishment melted in unfair ways
Where disobeying teachers is a crime.

***

Isolation; Shaken in a darkened corner,
Emotional blackmail; parental complaints
Are few strategies to make him pay
Is it necessary we punish an innocent soul?

***

Driven over to suicides
Their patience wearing thin
For when all is said and done
I can’t help being overwhelmed.
