Exams are looming in our house
revision going on we have to be as quiet as a mouse
It's the 'real ones', the ones that matter
quiet please....papers open....no time to chatter
Some kids are quaking in their shoes
some get on as if it's nothing new
It is a stressful time for them though
with careers and aspirations ready to grow
I think us adults make it worse
it's as if the roles are in reverse
It's not us that has to sit and be tested
us grown ups have been there now we can be rested
The pressure is piled on our kids far too much
a lot of them know what they're doing and feel in touch
Their bodies and brains just need our love
to support them through whatever they're dreaming of
All is not lost if the grades don't come easy
there is always an answer, so don't feel at all queasy
It's just finding the right road that will suit
a bit like the sat nav when it decides to re route
We are all different and don't have the same plans
for some it's not important to take their exams
That's ok it's not a set up for a fall
some successful people never took any exams at all
So whatever you do just do your best
success is not always at the end of a test
Be positive that everything will work out just fine
no one can extinguish your light it's your time to shine!!!
