Techivita's Note: So I had to take an AP test today and this is what I wrote in order to try to help me calm down. Didn't work, but posting this anyway to buffer a requested story I wanted to post but can't really post today.
Periculum Suscipe: Take the Risk
Written by Techivita on 5/9/14
Alarm rings, eyes open
Sluggishly you awaken.
Muddled thoughts, not much
And then it clicks:
Rushing out, heart beating,
Short breaths, eyes filled with fear.
Waiting impatiently for the train
All your thoughts say:
Tying to remember what you had learned
Scanning your mind for information
Nothing comes up
All you remember is:
Alighting, you run out
Counting the minutes that tick by
Only a few minutes left.
You can’t be late because:
Waiting when you’re seated
Fiddling with your pencil
You try to remember the information
But still nothing, only:
Fear knots your stomach,
Sweat accumulates on your brow.
You open your test booklet.
