Résumé Honnête

Résumé Honnête

 

Résumé Honnête, poem by jennspoint

In the beginning was education, information, and college, where knowledge, skills, and aptitude were viewed as keys to fulfillment upon commencement…

Where reality proved that degree was, in actuality, worthless. The notion that a promotion was in sight…

I hope? Nope. Years dragged on, more grueling than schooling had ever been. Idealism became realism, and enthusiasm turned to suspicion that I was fooling myself…

Into believing someone else’s dream. Lesson learned, and crash-landing notwithstanding, demanding truth, I made a new plan to reflect, learn to earn self-respect. Esteem is within as I begin this new experience, where intelligence and common sense rule…

With wisdom and white hair.
