Academia Brats

God, grant me the serenity to 
Retain the subjects I've learned
And the confidence to acknowledge 
The grades I have earned

Give me the courage to keep going 
As I ache and get older
The strength to carry these books
That rest on my shoulders

Give me the wisdom and insight 
To get through this year
The faith to conquer my courses 
Without doubt, or any fear

Give me patience and restraint 
When I want to lash out
Hold down my tongue, keep me 
From cursing out loud

At the percentage of brats 
Who are wasting their time
While others through effort and 
Ethics, do brightly shine

~Camille Rose Castillo 2010
