It's January 1st, the day is finally here!
Forget about the last one, this one will be an awesome year
But I was soon sick of the chill and of the shortened days
"If spring would just come on, my problems would go away."
And so I sulked for months, until the air was warm
Until I could wear short sleeves, and sunshine was the norm
And for a while, things were good, then I began to sneeze
My throat felt weird, my eyes both itched, I hate my allergies!
And the schoolwork started to pile, exams just down the line
"All I need to do is to get to summer, then I'm fine"
Coughed and sneezed through homework, groaned about my tests
Until it was the summer, until I could take a rest
And for a while, things were perfect, but soon I couldn't bear
The mosquitoes, and the heat, and the unbreathable stuffy air
So I drudged on the next few months, doing nothing to remember
Just gamed by the AC, right up until September
Until when school started again, and for a while things were great
I got to see my friends, but I soon began to hate
All the schoolwork, and assessments, and all the time it took
To find context to this quote in my lousy English book
But I won't give up hope, salvation is so near
I'm sure I'll be okay if I can make it to next year.
