"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught." - Oscar Wilde

I sit alone,
And so I groan,
And on I moan,
For what I have become.

They pass by,
While there I die,
And so I cry;
For what I have become.

And pity’s sake,
Is e’er so fake,
And so I wake,
For what I have become.

For what I have become?
But what is that?
Doth it all hideously sum,
To many a vile fact?

I am what I have been,
And ‘tis they who change.
By their eyes I am seen,
But not hit by their rage.
To myself I have been true,
Though my life in lies doth hum,
And finally I laugh at you,
For what thou hast become

I love this!! It reminds me of when I would come home from school crying and my mother would tell me not to worry about the kids picking on me at school, that someday I would be their boss and I would controle their pay check. So this poem is a bit nastalgic for me in a way lol. It really is good too, George :) Keep writing, babe ;)
