Illusions
cohoyo1

A reflection of my life as a teacher.  After soon-to-be ten years, it is time for a change (and I am making it as you read this).

Reflections upon aspirations
 1
   -- desire to succeed--
 2
Solemnly strolling down dank corridors
 3
  --shuffling of unmotivated feet--
 4
Dismal rustling of papers
 5
  --empty promises of tomorrow--
 6
Forsaken talents and idle prospects
 7
  --crumpling of fruitful dreams no longer attainable-
 8
Stifling solitude.
 9
Petty remorse.
 10
Shadows of misery.
