Academic Depression

A cold wind blows on a winter morning.
Grey clouds occupy the sky all around.
It is the first day back from Christmas break.
It seems even the sky is unhappy.

Desks sit in rows inside concrete boxes.
Surrounded by other concrete boxes.
It is the first day back from Christmas break.
It seems even the school is unhappy.

The unforgiving brick of the school nears.
With it come burdens of more work, less time.
It is the first day back from Christmas break.
It seems that the students are unhappy.
