Je ne sais pas

Hey people!
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!

Déjà vu

Déjà vu,
Every time I switched schools,
Same type of introductions, 
Same type of people,
Same rules, 
Same nervousness,
Certaines choses ne changent jamais

Déjà su,
Of course I know things like classes won't change,
All first days of school the same,
All classes the same,
Il n'y avait pas de différence,
Aucun que je connaissais

Déjà vécu,
Naturally I had lived it all before, 
Every time, 
Every year,
It was to be the same wasn't it?
Ça a toujours été

Jusqu'à ce que ce ne soit pas,
Everything was different this time,
No going to school, 
No meeting friends,
No cribbing about double periods like a fool,
Tout a changé

Les choses ont tourné pour de bon,
Et puis ils étaient à nouveau mauvais,
Everything started to seem normal, 
We started to slip into our old routine again,
MAIS,
Ça a encore changé,
It got worse,
No offline school again,
Covid terrorizing all,
No friends again,
All of us dreaming of meeting again,
In the cafeteria hall

Les choses ne sont pas pareilles maintenant,
Like they were,
Some changes are good,
Some bad,
Don't know which one this is,
Encore........

Hey guys!
I hope you all are well!!!
So basically this was a poem I wrote some in English some in French, cause lots of reasons ig?
You can check out it’s translation here

Anyway this describes how I felt every time I had changed schools, and the first days of school every year, every time it was same, till the day it changed.
And how COVID-19 affected our lives, and I still don’t know whether it is a good change or a bad one……
PS check out my hate filled review of the cursed child here.

How did you feel adjusting to online schools?

I wish you all a happy day ahead, stay safe!
