3AM

3AM

A Poem by WillaDanvers
"

University is an interesting experience, and you meet interesting people along the way.

"

It’s the laughter at 3am,

Insults flying lazily around the room,

Cackling at the responses,

And the acknowledgement of sleep,

 

It’s the nod in the hallway before dinner,

The tired smiles as we sit next to each other,

Asking how the other’s day went,

And waiting for our turn to speak,

 

The polite smiles and chatter in the stairs,

Rushing to class but stopping to greet,

We don’t know each other all that well,

But all you need to do is say hello,

 

Bonding over the people we dislike,

Sharing stories that shouldn’t be told,

Trying to keep it all under wraps,

It’ll get out one day, it always does,

 

Chocolate, coffee, tea, vodka,

The things we can’t eliminate,

Cackling through the caffeine at midnight,

There might be a few things wrong here,

 

We are all starting the same kind of journey,

In the same boat, so to speak,

Crammed full of somewhat useful information,

And procrastinating the study we were given last week.

This poem reminded me of many work functions. I think anytime learning is involved, there is a group of people drinking and trying to stay awake all night for some reason. I enjoyed this picture of university. I didn't live on campus, so I didn't get this full experience, but it is very familiar.

I enjoyed reading this piece. I got an inherently sad feeling from it though, it isn't the "University is best time of your life" view that seems to be the popular opinion.
I found parts of my own university life very difficult and, whether you intended it or not, the sense of melancholy gave me some major déjà vu. I did find the repetition of cackling a little bit jarring so maybe you could find a different description for one of them.

Sounds like much more fun than the army.

I wouldn't know about the Army but the Uni does have a few good moments
