BREAK FREE - AN ODE TO THE LIFE OF A SCIENCE STUDENT

Written by: Amrapali Tendolkar

A wish to break free from all the tensions and stress,
 


Pressure to perform or because of low marks distress,
 


Bombarding on the brain by parents and all teachers,
 


The soul of a science student is really much harassed.
 


 
 


A wish to break free from this monotonous schedule round the clock,
 


From college to tuitions and from tuitions back,
 


No time for self study, no time to get a grip,
 


The hectic schedule has all the capacity from the brain hacked.
 


 
 


A wish to break free from the rat race around,
 


The peer pressure and strain that continuously surround,
 


The fatal competition that burdens the soul,
 


Each moment living in fear of losing the ground.
 


 
 


A wish to break free from the inhumane touch,
 


Of those lecturers who don’t care as much,
 


As the ones who care but can’t be there,
 


To show support and encourage and all such.
 


 
 


A wish to break free from the wrongs happening in the world,
 


The laws and the rules working against certain student lot,
 


Adding to the already existing pressure on these tender minds,
 


Making the heads fuming and hot.
 


 
 


A wish to break free from the deep rooted ill logic,
 


Present in a subject that scatters all its magic,
 


The memorizing and roting that is so much required,
 


That makes the studying all the more tragic.
 


 
 


A wish to break free is the soul’s earnest cry,
 


A wish to break the barriers, to soar and to fly,
 


A wish to be science-minded individuals by choice, not by force,
 


And to be found some years hence, where our hearts lie…
