Was It Worth It? (A Poem)

Hi there! It’s results day tomorrow, and I decided to express my anxieties poetically. I hope you enjoy.


And what if, after

All this, after

Every hour and breath and bead of sweat,

Every tear brushed hurriedly away

Before eyes become salt-clouded, or the words begin to sway,

Every night known for far too long in

A caffeine scented haze of words, every alarm

Piercing the veil of far too little sleep,

Eyes groggy and head pounding, forced, again,

To face another day that drags downwards into the depths

Of a frenzied fever dream;

What if, after not quite living

Through all of this,

It comes to nothing;

Nothing at all?
