Dear Teach,

I never appreciated you until I left that building,

Now I do the same things to my current professors,

Man I'm in need of some healing,

I want to tell you all the things I should have said,

'I don't really understand this' or  'I need extra help',

I have to get these repetitive words out my head,

For they eat me up and I slip back into a world of resentment,

The reason I never listened to you in the first place,

I thought I knew it all, you knew my temperament,

So if you ever get this message just know I apologize,

I never meant to take you for granted,

We all need some support, that's what I finally realized.

Peace.
