He misses lectures
Though he knows he shouldn't
Likely could have gone
But he feels he couldn't
'Next week. Next Time'
'I haven't read the book'
'It'll be fine; at least I've taken a look'
But in the end
All is well
For when the time of assignments arises
He often finds his passion to exceed surprises
The simple message conveyed in this verse pivots on the fact that whilst the author may miss lectures on occasion, his over-riding passion to succeed ensures this does not negatively affect him. It could be inferred that the third person address 'Him' refers to a deity or higher power. However this is incorrect.
