You who stand for all that is good
Delivering your messages of right and wrong
Hath given me an injustice.
You donned your mask, your falsehood so well
That even I was played the fool, and yet
I let you trick me again, and again.
I am such an idiot, for believing your sordid excuses
and feeling maybe, just maybe
I may make a difference in a sea of learners
I wrote this after I had gotten home from a most difficult day at work.
It wasn’t so much that the students who I have come to know and have
put my faith in were giving me a rough time. No. For they were angels.
I had given my resignation. I will not be returning, and it is sad. For I have worked
there for eight long years, with many successes. I’ve seen students whose dreams
were nothing more than just that…dreams, but have now come to life and it is a
glorious feeling. I am proud to have been a part of that success.
