Leaving the classroom?

Concentric soul circles swirl as
responsibility and freedom touch
palm to palm
and turn,
a revolving maelstrom
from which my heart has
no escape.

I cannot overlook
the myriad ways that
leaving endangers us.

As the stalwart tin soldier,
I must stay,
Though the heat of
Abandoned dreams
Melts my soul.
