So I wrote a poem which is directed to those specific people who expect me to know everything because I’m a scholar, who mock me when I don’t know the answer, and the ones who treat me like an answer key, they are just so infuriating……….
And those teachers who pick on you when no one can answer just cause they don’t like you……..
Oh and ‘Je ne sais pas’ means I don’t know.
Je ne sais pas, Am I the only one in class? All those questions, Directed at me when no one can answer.... Je ne sais pas, When you ask me the answers, Is it weird that I can't answer? Just because I'm a scholar doesn't make me a genius, I'm human you know.... Je ne sais pas, No, I don't know everything in this world, And yes some facts do surprise me, That too weird for you? Je ne sais pas, Yes I do learn in class, Is that astounding for you? I don't have google in my head, I can't possibly know something before the teacher teaches it, Whoever the teacher may be, Even if I know it, I might not understand it, So I do need to listen in classes like you do, Not a super human people... Je ne sais pas, Why is it so surprising, I'm a human, There are many things I am not aware of, It's normal, Just accept it.... Je ne sais pas tout, C'est la vie pour toi, At the end of the day, I'm a human, I don't know everything, Stop exclaiming when I admit it, I don't care what you think, I have questions, About studies, About life, And so many more, I'm not your answer key, Because many a times I myself don't know, I don't care what you think, When I tell you that, Because the truth is, Je ne sais pas la réponse, Je n'ai pas peur de l'admettre.....
Do you find it annoying when people expect you to know everything just because you’re good at studies?
Stay safe, keep reading!
