Sharing the knowledge of my obtained wisdom
With young minds, eager to learn and flourish
Is the most noble of desires that can be had
Yet is it just that easy? Or are there unforeseen obstacles to overcome?
Will I be like Socrates, executed by the state for corrupting the youth?
Is philosophy really a worthy subject to die for? I can't think of any better!
To inspire profound questions that have never been asked before
Causing students to honestly examine their beliefs and arguments
Leading them this way and that, through the labyrinth of the mind
Surpassing those that came before us,
Crafting an elegant and elaborate design
Before tearing it down to start anew
But what is required of me first?
Before I ascend to that glorious position
Of being a college professor of philosophy.
Years more of education, certainly.
Years more of personal growth,
A complete transformation
of my wallflower status
Easier said than done.
