Educational Moment

A Poem by Kimmee Jean

At school early


Listening to clacking of keyboards around me

The rush of late assignment being due and projects being researched

I sit in this library staring at my screen

I should be doing this and I should be doing that


Yet my mind wanders


Should Batman or Green Lanturn be my topic?

Should grade jelly ever be green?

Should I get linux or windows?

Should I back Occupy Wall Street and move with the Tea Bag?


Once again my mind wanders


Murmurs of converstaion and questions over resumes

clicking of the mouse and groans from students

I sit in this place, early once again

I wait for class to start so I can listen to the drone of the week


I let my mind wander


Should we have a debate about some thing silly or serious?

Should I stay with my major or go into Criminal Justice?

Should I consider Safari versus Chrome?

Should I actually finish more late work?


Yes, Once again, my mind wanders


The time comes to a close and the masses are off to class

To sit with my classmates and laugh during lecture

To actually pay attention during lab and do my work

To come, learn, work, and leave like the other two days of the week that I'm here


Okay, come on mind, let's wander.

The starting of this poem was very strong. Loved the detailing and striking imagery in it at few places. Random, but still full of so many thoughts.

Keep up the good work. This is a very well-written poem that goes into the mind of an average student: if not concerned with a report or essay, their mind wanders off into something more enjoyable. I really miss those days.

ahhhh I relate so perfectly to this!! You did an excellent job relating to the rest of us students! :)

I find this is the Anthem for Academia, my mind wandered and pondered much when it should have been staying on task... get used to it, letting my mind wander and ponder is how I make it through my work week.
