I have tried so hard
I have been there
I know what it feels like,
It breaks, it hurts
It can rip you
Failing my matric tore my
Heart apart
I cried, screamed
Jumped asked God why?

I felt like a failure
All the night, day, months, weeks
Studying so hard
Praying to make it having
The hope that
I am going to Neel it.

But it ended so bad
I didn’t make it
Was it a punishment?

I failed matric
Tried to commit suicide
But suicide was no option
But today I stand tall and say
Even if I failed my matric
I still have another chance
I still have Goals, dreams
That I want to achieve.
