I tried to count my woes

But can’t seem to put a number on it

I was never good at maths

I wish I’d paid more attention in class

Been good if not great at it

They said you don’t need maths in life,  much

They were wrong

If x is your pain

And y indifference

Then there is relief somewhere in the answer

I would’ve solved it if I were good with numbers –

Lesser than

Greater than


Subtraction of all the hurt

Do mathematicians fall in love?

Or do they subtract the heart

Multiply doubts

Divide hope until they believe in nothing

But numbers?
