Zimmer in Grade School The poem Zimmer in Grade School appears to be expressing a persons viewpoint of his self-image He is talking about his thoughts on how he viewed himself and the feelings how others viewed him in grade school It seemed that no matter what he did he was always looked down on No matter how much he would hide behind who he truly was he would still be known as Zimmer the child who is always outside of the principles office and the one with the messy papers that could not count spell or read If I peed my pants in class the puddle was always quickly evident To me that statement means that no matter what he did someone always pointed out the bad in him His worst mistake always resulted with him having to face the blackboard To Zimmer Jesus and all the saints were frowning on his actions He expressed the thoughts that everyone was against him His parents wrang their loving hands So even though they loved him they couldnt deal with his ways either He continued to wonder if he was such a failure why does he even exist He talks about his knuckles being swollen from combat and the old nuns ruler It seems like he was writing about the abuse he put up with and the abuse he dealt with from others Everyone was looking down on him through his eyes Through all his experiences he feared everything He feared learning his schoolmates and God himself This poem is personal and reminds me of my own thoughts from time to time It is often how I have viewed my own self image I felt I was never good enough or that everyone looked down on me making me feel that I was not smart enough or could not do anything right I feel how I was treated may have influenced my reflections about myself
