Decision Day

It’s Decision Day, not even Spring

The outcome of our future yet to be seen

We check the letter, the portal, the email

Hoping they tell a congratulatory tale


This time last year we were working hard

Our sanity forever cracked and scarred

It took us years just to build this resume

And now it all comes down to Decision Day


Some chose a path shrouded in ivy

Others preferred to stay quite near

Either way, if the response is an apology

Feeling our failure, we’re quick to tears


With just a click, our fate is seen

And from the first three words, we can glean

We’ll read it just two or three thousand times

The reason for rejection we struggle to find

We lost our dream, it slipped away

It’s been a fateful decision day
