I never thought I'd be writing in my favorite form about my least favorite topic XD But I spit this out after doing a math test and a quiz plus three lessons today and I hope you like it!

Algebra

FREE WRITING

2
1 + 1 = 2
3 x 4 = 12
But what is x - 7?

numbers in disguise
are filling the pages of my notebook
flooding my vision
and my head

I thought I knew
all there was to know
about those tricky little creatures
called numbers

but I guess I don't
and now I'm confused

ax^2 + bx + c = 0
a positive discriminant means 2 solutions
but what is y?

pages, pages
of notes
couldn't decode the language
of algebra
even if it were to save a life

I'll just graph a circle
and call it a parabola

Complete the square
find the vertex
untangle the web

Isn't that geometry
or am I going crazy
trying to explain
a skill I do not need
ever

I am going to be a filmmaker
not a mathematician 
for heaven's sake
