Required Enrollment

Without my permission
I have been enrolled
Into the School of Hard Knocks
Most students do not enroll themselves
It is a learning institution that is not voluntary
I am taking classes for
Alcoholism, anxiety, death, divorce, depression and fibromyalgia
None of them I would have signed up for
The only one I expected at all was death
Which everyone has to face throughout life
But the others are a part of my schedule
Like it or not
I am forced to do my homework
And shaken-up with quizzes
Someday the true test will challenge me
For now I do the best I can
And know each day I learn a little bit more
Taking me closer to the end of class
