Splashing in my math book

Algebraic expressions looking at me

Will you ever work on my favour

Waking up with my granny on the bedside

looking at me with faith

as she say “l know you will make me

pro..” Disturbed by her cough

Will l be able to finish the sentence

Snacks flying across me

Friends passing them to one another

with my dry mouth craving even a mouse

will my future also fly like this

“Pens down” as the teacher

command.The question ring

again will my tears build an empire
