Giving All She's Got

A poem taking a look inside the busy lifestyle of a college student.

Giving All She's Got

Grabs her cup of coffee,
Rushes out the door.
Spending all this time,
She realizes, She’s looking for more.

Books in hand,
Keys in the other,
She gets in that old car.
Turns the key, starts the engine,
She’s going somewhere she doesn’t wanna go.

She’s ready to just give up,
She’s giving it all she’s got.
Oh how glorious that would be,
No more tests to keep,
A little time to sleep,
She’s ready to just give in,
But she’s giving it all she’s got.

She reaches for the door,
Takes a seat in the back row,
Hearing that bell, She runs out the door,
No She can’t be late again,
No, can’t be late again, now

She’s ready to give up,
But she’s giving it all she’s got.
Oh how glorious that would be,
No more tests to keep,
A little time to sleep,
She’s ready to just give in,
But she’s giving it all she’s got.

That's how it goes...by giving all you've got. You'll thank yourself later for giving all you've got now.

I love the busy rhythm of this!

Yes, I agree with LeRain, you've captured the 'busy-ness' of your subject in the rhythm of your words.
I hope you're finding moments in which to catch your breath!

Very well written and captured the feel of "rushing" from here to there to achieve the goal! My daughter had an infant, worked, and went to college, getting her criminal justice degree. It was hard...but she did it!
