College Controversy

I recall my days of labour
As I toiled in dark hours
When spirits roam the earth
And mortals shuttle to dreamland.
The candle wax melted
And the lamp's oil dried
In a bid to acquiring college space,
The desire for discovery of my life's purpose
Felt the ache as I ascended every step.
Filled with hope
of fulfillment at the journey's end
I've reached the top
I levitate to the highest height
What do I feel? ...........................................NOTHING
I was unburdened and given a greater burden
The earth applauded my arrival
Into a world of drama,
A battlefield
Where soldiers defended only self
It's a fierce academic war, I must win
It's the University.
