Today was exam day.
That dreaded and yet anticipated climax after weeks of formation and studying.

It stole my sleep and left exhaustion.
It took my peace and left stress.
It took my time and left me in a constant hurry.

It showed no mercy when life took my grandmother and left me with grief.
It displayed no sympathy when covid took my grandparents by surprise and left me with concern for their wellbeing.
It took no pity on me whenever it took my laughter and left me in tears.

I took the exam today. Tomorrow I’ll start taking back everything else.
Love, February
