On University Applications

I know that you must read a lot of these
but I can’t help but feel that
really, honestly, it’s impossible
for me to sum up all of my dreams
in a mere three hundred words.

Or to show you all of the things I can write
in a sample of just two thousand;
or to tell you the story of my journey
and how long and arduous it’s been
in the matter-of-fact lines of a CV.

Which is all to say that I’m sorry
that I went ever so slightly over
and wrote 10% more for both.
I hope you’ll understand that it’s just
that I’m so very full of dreamstuff and hope.
