I suck at mathematics
I think it's too complicated
kind of like you and me
We are like similar shapes
because we have many things in common 
The only thing we differ in is that I want the world
And you only want this one moment. 
Therefore we are not congruent
Were not a perfect match
Were complicated 
So just like math I will not enjoy
registering for you.
I will avoid you until the last moment.
And than when I do take you 
I will still be confused even after 
a couple of lessons.  
If I take you I will need a lot of advice 
from friends and tutoring sessions.
You are my personal challenge.
I want to conquer and defeat 
but I don't know that I ever will.
I might always be intimidated by you.
