I never could understand

the stress of a final exam.

I never could justify getting

worked up

and disgruntled

and frustrated

over less than two hours

of my life.

Yes,

these count for grades.

Yes,

these are important.

Yes,

I am paying for this education

with money I don't have.

Finals are just review.

A semester's worth of work

should have already been learned

prior to the test.

This isn't fighting dragons,

no rescuing damsels in distress.

There is no reason

to stress

over a piece of

a life

a day

and a moment

so small.

Nothing good

ever came

from being

overstressed

about a

test.
