Bad Grades

Bad grades
Mom says it's just a phase
That things will get better
But they don't
So this is how I cope
I write and hide inside my own mind
And inside I'm telling the teachers
I know you're trying to help 
Make me understand
But there is no point
I've failed by my own choice
This is all my fault
You're just supposed to teach
Not waste your time
Bad grades
It's my own doing
I forgot about the homework assignment 
So when I got home I simply threw it away
I didn't study for the test
So I left the teacher a note that I failed
Bad grades
Mom expects more from me
But I don't
I stopped caring right when everything went wrong.
