Educated in curriculums
qualified to lesson plan
and structure evaluations

far reach from current course –
platform inaccessible, only student
self – a disagreeable sort

take my grievances higher –
no response, boss is asleep
indifference snoring.

  1. Loved your education intro (the retired teacher in me reads so much into those lines), the ‘student self’ and the final indifference – sliding from school to life and all the questions that comparison brings. Thanks for the succinct capture that speaks volumes to me .

  2. “Angels are often silent, but they are listening to every thought that stirs our soul.” I find a sign can come when one least expects it. Just have to be open and adjust the antenna. 🙂
