The Ecology Student

THE ECOLOGY STUDENT

Always eats alone
And keeps her own company

Her head in a book
Even in the dining hall

Their whispered nickname
“The Academia Nut”

Oh yes, she’s heard it
But you don’t let on of course

Dignified silence
A study in deepest blue

Mindless cruelty
She fingers her hidden scars

Stained with history
Like the poor planet itself

Turn! Turn! Turn!

TURN! TURN! TURN!

Feeling is healing
But not until the time comes
Till then it is hell

Survivors

SURVIVORS

Unwelcome truths
Accepting and yet rejecting
At the very same time
Quite a trick, I know
But we manage it somehow
And even smile sometimes too
