As you toss your caps in the air,
You yelled, "Freedom! At last!"
No more exams and reports!
No more thesis and deadlines!
No more waking up at 6am!
Hustling through job postings,
You found a rather decent one
Not very ideal but enough
Upon meeting the boss
"She's nice.", you said
Few months have passed
You're on your way to the office
Drinking your early morning coffee
While going thru your emails
A File folder on the side
As you hurried to your desk, you slipped!
Spilling the coffee, throwing the pile of papers in the air
In a flash, you remember the day you thought was your freedom
Yes to reports!
Yes to deadlines!
Yes to waking up at 6am!
It's funny how you thought that everything has changed,
but when you looked back, you realized, it has always stayed the same.
