Rebel Poem

He skipped class to study

He did it because he wasn’t ready

He did it to stay at home

He did it to sleep in

He did it to release his stress

He did it because his parents were away

He did it to game with his friends

He did it for himself

                                             By Truman Leung


This is certainly a unique style of poetry I have never encountered before. It was fun writing this piece because I had quite a lot of ideas for it. I settled with writing about how students were skipping school to “study”, so in this poem I shared what I think they were really doing.
