Poem: Mathematics - June 7th 2012, 03:46 PM

I wrote this in my Calculus class. What do you gals and guys think of it?

"Mathematics"

Math to me is such a bore,
And everyday: another class.
I know that two plus two is four
So where's the point in learning more?

I'm waiting for the time to pass
Past the time when I can leave
And sit and smoke upon the grass,
But still that time is far, alas,
Attent in class I'll wait and grieve.


"My heart is warm with friends I make,
And better friends I'll not be knowing;
Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take,
No matter where it's going."

- Edna St. Vincent Millay

I like this, it's one of those things where I sat and read it thinking 'ahh this is so me'
It's good, and funny in a way, the part which said 'I know that two plus two is four, so whats the point of learning more' was my favourite.
KEep writing, I'd love to read more.

I have to agree with Reverie. that line is my favourite. As long as you can add and subtract why do you need to know anything else? I like the poem


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

"I know that two plus two is four, so what's the point of learning more". Haha that is soo how I felt in algebra 2. Especially when we had a student teacher and she didn't seem to even know that much.

I feel the same way. I really like this. Keep writing!





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die

Math needs to grow up and solve its own problems. I despise math, it was always my worst subject; I'm just math retarded, I guess. Wonderful poem, I liked this a lot. I can relate to it.
