Math – Loves Me, Loves Me Not | Bookosmia

Math - Loves me, loves me not


I always thought math was a bore,

Arithmetic tiring to the core.

From tests I fled out of fright,

‘Cause I never got anything right,

Oh, math was such a bore!


Why couldn’t it solve its own problems?

The problems as dry as the gardens of autumn,

Even when I tried to concentrate

Math would always intimidate.


Why was math so bad?

The sum always looked like a cruel joke,

And my confidence gradually broke.

Oh why was math making me so bored?

In my brain nothing would get stored.


Math - Loves me, loves me not

Why was this the case?

But then I saw a very big change,

The numbers no longer looked strange!

I actually understood what I was doing,

And my answers were also improving!

Thank god! I cried with joy.

Then I discovered math is really awesome,

And in my mind mathematical seeds started to blossom.


No longer did I see math as torture,

And to the world of math I slowly took departure.

Math is no longer a bore,

Arithmetic no longer tires to the core!


Math - Loves me, loves me not
