This Poem Makes Sense if you go to UC Merced during the Latter Half of Spring

UC Merced, 2019

By Joseph Rojas

 

I meander at first, then pick up speed

Along the imaginary arrow.

On this journey I walk to take the lead;

I pass others on pathways too narrow.

United as one with our heads that burn,

Out in the open—victim to the flame.

Some may complain at every step or turn,

Others mute, with only themselves to blame.

We claim our brilliance, but yet we toil;

Constantly searching for a better way.

But until then, our heads and blood shall boil

Unless we should lose our courage to stay.

The proxy elite preach the worth of work,

But until this walk fades, our rage will lurk.

 

P.S.

I Like Sonnets.

P.P.S

It did not say toin the directions to mention this, but I read William Blake’s London and this poem was inspired by that. At least I don’t think it did. I didn’t read the directions that well.

  1. Im not sure you followed the directions perfectly either but the poem is good. From what I gathered from the poem it seems to state that we are all goal oriented and motivated to finish school here at UC Merced. But I also gathered that it will take a lot of courage and strength to finish school and the anger and frustration from the work load could lead to our demise.
