Exam Nerves

If you could see my nerves
You’d see they were frayed
All jiggling and jangling
On this exam day
But then in an instance
I stop and I think
Why let such reaction
Put life on the brink
And breathe in all deeply
Smile broad and smile wide
And know that the best
Is already inside
In knots of my memory
In boxes and stores
So all I need now
Is a test that ensures
Those banks are tapped quickly
To leak out the stuff
I’ve learnt and remembered
And that’s good enough!

Revision

Swot and study
Memorise
Constant going
To get wise
Or is that worn out
Who just knows?
Learning facts
And writing prose
Mind maps, post-sticks
Notes on wall
Books of jottings
Getting full
Cramming! Stuffing
Will it stay?
We’ll just see
On exam day!

Exam Nerves

Sweaty paws!
Clenching jaws!
The testing season’s here
Heart beats race
Feet will pace
Pushed on by exam fears

Yet here’s the thing
O’er everything
Past sympathetic tone
Take a big breath
Lest scared to death
For you are not alone

And chill your beans
For by no means
Will too much stress help you
For certain sure
You do know more
Than you believe is true

So hold on to
And smile anew
For now the time is here
To demonstrate
Then celebrate
How much you’ve learnt this year!
