academia, you mock me so
put my mind through a tornado
leaving me to pick up the debris
that you strewed so haphazardly.

a failure you make me appear to be
distorting the only vision i can see
having me question my ability
and destroying confidence brutally.

falling, falling, falling
you left me dangling off a cliff
leaving me to scream and wish
for a different tune to sing.

i'll thank you for deserting me
in my desperate time of need.
i didn't need you anyhow
and this path i will walk alone now.
