To study or not to study--that is the quesiton.
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to learn
The ins and the outs of subjects through flashcards,
or to take arms against the sea of notes
And, by opposing, end them. To fail, to sleep--
No more-- and by failing to say we end
The heartache and the stress of the mind
That homework is heir to-- 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished none. To fail, to sleep--
To fail, perchance an unknown entity.
For in that failure of tests what dreams may come,
When we have stopped to study,
Must give us time.
There's the respect
That makes studying beneficial.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of ignorance,
Laziness is wrong.
The pangs of Facebook, twitter and the television
Distracts us from making the decision.
The patient merit of th' unworthy takes,
When he himself has neglected to study.
Who goes through everyday life,
Without the dread of failing and report cards.
Yet the undiscovered overachiever.
Who takes notes diligently.
His conscience does make cowards of us all.
And thus gives us much to think about.
What is the resolution?
Be all the times I neglected to study remembered.
