Almost There

By Anonymous

Almost there…


It’s the end of the year

I wish so much that I could cheer

But my endless to-dos make the end so far

Projects and exams, I need a shooting star


Sometimes it’s cold sometimes it’s hot

Chicago’s bipolar weather makes me question if it’s summer or not

I can already smell the sunscreen and the fruit punch

I can finally have a stress-free midnight munch


No more reading no more exams

Forget about all those all-nighter crams

We’re almost there, don’t give up hope

Don’t look at that pile of work and say “nope!”


A shining sun and a bright new day

A few more days and it will be May

After a long year of hard work, finish strong

This is what we’ve been waiting for all along
