Welcome students, this school year will be really fun.
Fun as in home works that will shoot you like a gun.
Projects and requirements that make you lack sleep,
Lessons so complex, we really need to dig deep.
Is it no different from any other school year?
I guess not. We suffer stress in every school year.
But there is something different, but what could it be?
The load? The complexity? What is it, really?
The Grade 7 students are fighting against time.
It is like five seconds of thinking of a rhyme.
They are new to many things which are challenging.
Welcome to high school, not allowed equals slacking.
Grade 8 is no different. In fact, it’s just the same.
Maybe a bit easier. Please tone down the game.
Well, even though grade 8 isn’t really that hard,
They still raise their heads and keep on moving forward.
It keeps on getting harder once you’ve reached grade 9.
With the lessons so hard, and the details so fine.
Projects and home works, Are you sure you can stand this?
I highly doubt it. It will never be a bliss.
With the students of grade 10, let’s try finding hope.
I’m looking. I’m looking. What I see is a nope.
It’s similar to grade 9. I guess that makes sense.
The stress is so strong that it could just break a fence.
We hear their complaints almost every single time.
They beg here, they beg there, they beg from time to time.
No matter how hard you try, you just can’t stop it.
We live and we learn. That’s how we’d think about it.
Relax, calm down, but don’t stop yourself from thinking,
For the future and for the things you’ve been wanting.
Just remember that a school year does not last long.
It will always reach its end, farewell and so long.
