60 every year

I spent...

5 years = 60 months
Thousands of £££ on living expenses
On software, hardware, cameras,
dicta phones, batteries, paper,
phone calls, air tickets, fuel,
bus tickets, train tickets...
Many streams of tears
Many days filled with worry
Endless hours reading
And even more writing
Learned how to hide from things,
how to forget about things,
how to speak about things,
and find out about things.

A long journey of 5 years, and all I have is
300 pages. 60 every year.
All I know, and all I learned, packed,
in a linear fashion into an academic thesis.

But I am glad..its over,
and now I await my exam.
