You stubborn student, listen to me!
1 + 1 will never equal 3.
The reason why you can’t do math
Is because you’re trying to use equations
And formulas that don’t exist.
Your studious strength
Has so much potential,
But you can’t half-ass apply
Knowledge while claiming credentials.
Stop dividing your worth
Trying to equal everyone else.
With 7,942,645,086 humans or so
On this earth,
Why not just be you?
An ounce of self-assurance
Ought to do you some good.
Not the kind of a cocky, arrogant sense.
Just a cup of confidence.
But- you’re so stubborn.
Stubborn is as stubborn does. Cliche. Being stubborn isn’t the flex that I once thought it was. It’s not something I choose to be proud of knowing that my stubbornness made a lot of hard things even harder. But I have taken in all lessons. I am still growing.
