About the drive to pass a critical test in one’s life - a poem.
|A cherished opportunity,
Available only for a fleeting time -
Matching wits, precision, and care
With the field’s most particular judges
In a widely-viewed exam
For acknowledgment and status...
Long live these amicable souls
Who endeavor for such coveted class distinction;
Their years of relentless, untiring dedication
Have fueled an unwavering belief
In the efficacy of individuals
All over this great land -
And the faith and trust
They have exhibited shall prove
To be the backbone
Of their highly-unresolved
And meaningful expectations...
