"There are no bad students, only bad teachers."

"The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of a train."

Raising your armies
You think you can
scare me?
The line has been cut,
Through thick and thin
The rope falls and
you’re on the falling end.

For too long you’ve tied
Me down, but now
You’re the one who’s
scrambling for ground
Bigger or badder
Guess it doesn’t matter
When you tumble over
the edge?

Time will knit
my wounds together
It’ll never get
a chance with you.
You threw me to the ground,
Pushed me around,
Now look who’s tumbling

The author's comments:
We've all had that fair-weather friend who, in the long run, we find ourselves better without. I visualized that decisive encounter in a Lion King-esque cliff falling moment.
