The never ending circle

of expectation raised

no effort was applied

of failure achieved

makes me want to scream.

What makes the difference

between students who give up

and those who persevere

to find success?

Perhaps it’s in their mantras:

I don’t care

versus

I care.

Those who say they don’t care, do,

but they simply don’t believe

they can.

It couldn’t be, he said, that you are unwilling?

A shrug was the reply.

Do you feel unable?

Another shrug.

You know, he said, it’s always a choice;

if you are willing,

eventually,

you are able.
