My GCSEs and what they meant to me

On results day, only six letters mattered;
ABC
DEF
I managed to get ten.
A*A*
AAAA
BB
DD
Do they even matter?
DD
(What about my other grades?)
DD
(But I passed all the rest!)
DD!?
(Aren’t you guys proud of me?)
DD!
(but i did my best…)

All I heard was I didn’t try hard enough
That I should have done more than I did
So if my best just wasn’t good enough
Then i’d do what I wanted instead.
