Pff…

Original

Pff… examens komen er weer aan.
De irritantste periode van het jaar.
Boeken stapelen zich op mijn bureau.
Wat heb ik mezelf toch aangedaan!

Pff… examens komen er weer aan.
De drukste periode van het jaar.
Familiefeesten stapelen zich op in mijn planning
Kan ik die stress wel aan?!

Pff… examens komen er weer aan.
De pijnlijkste periode van het jaar
Lichamelijke klachten stapelen zich op
Komt hier nooit een einde aan?!

Pff… examens komen er weer aan.
De ongezondste periode van het jaar
Papierwikkels stapelen zich op in mijn prullenmand
Hopelijk is deze nachtmerrie snel gedaan!

Pff… Ik haat examens

Meaning

My first poem that I ever made was in my native language Dutch. The title of that poem is “Pff…”. I wrote that poem while I was having a studybreak. I was in the middle of my January exams of 2018 in college. I was full of frustration when I was writing that poem. This is also one of my few poems with rhyme.
