She gave herself an A
Because her aspirations flew free
She gave herself a B
For her broken abilities
She gave herself a C
For lack of concious time
She gave herself a D
For finding doubt all over her mind
She gave herself an F
Because failures ruled her life
She gave herself every grade in the book
And so ended her eternal strife.

I agree with @Consalvator , but this is very impressive. Very honest and a well-explained message.

I really enjoyed the style of this poem. I could relate a lot. My only suggestion is changing the last line because it's not in harmony with the rest of the poem (in my opinion). It kinda felt like a red herring. Other than that, the emotion behind the piece was very real and passionate, and I really liked the flow of it.
