Listen Too Closely

Ian is an upcoming poetic. My mind game during my first day to college.

Girl listening closely

Girl listening closely

It was 5 a.m

I woke up

I was not sure if this was the real day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


It was the great day

I was waiting for it

For almost a thousand day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


I guess my mother was happy

My siblings too

It was a dream day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


Unsure of the feeling

Like I was worried

I was ready for the day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


It was 8.am

I boarded a car

I started the day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


I was making a step

I was joining campus

I had waited for the day

But in my mind, I listened too closely

Not knowing what awaited me

I left to face it

God has given me the day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


I reached Masaku town

The atmosphere was tense

It was on a sunny day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


I saw a dark blue gate

With armed men

Maybe it was not my day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


Wait, what a fool I was

They were guards

There to make my day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


In the dusty office

Was my professor

Ready to take me through the day

But in my mind, I listened too closely


Finally I was there

I was the what called bonafide student

This was my day

But in my mind, I listened too closely
