Manacles Of Academia - Poem by Dela Bobobee

As I pause, poised on the brink
from this Pierian Spring deep to drink
my shaky knees and weak feet
please hearken to my heartbeat
beseeching to achieve this feat
to cross over frustration’s pit
into much success great and fit

a long, long wait it is, Mother
no one seems to understand either
I can’t take a drink too shallow
inspirations, hunches to follow
please tell them all to mellow
drink shallow I grow more thirsty
Academia is a trick so much testy
on this threshold I stretch my arm
Mother, a long way from home I am
