Untraditional Student a poem - new version

Untraditional Student

label me

with some clever verbiage
using wordage
with me in mind

tell me you don’t agree
with your actions
factions and
sarcastic sign

you  cannot prevent my 
presence from permeating
pure smooth
and contemplating

my attitude confuses
but I’m still standing
regardless of where that
sign is landing

look at me and look away
it’s ok
you can’t shake my faith
its like a stock brigade

listen listless lonely learner
to the sound of hope
rising high
the look of triumph in my eyes

life can throw me down,
but I don’t go down

standing here determined
it can be unnerving
so go ahead and

label me
