I can envision me in another world

Trying to escape from you

   Your tight grip around my creativity

Makes me stay here even longer

   Each day I try to impress you with words

I feel as if I fail if i let you down

   I try my hardest

Showing you what I can do

   A little encouragement would help along the way

   Each passing second I sit in awe

At your constructive criticism

   Each moment I yearn to hear your advice

You are my teacher almost like a friend

   Who will help me when I need it

Who will be there to make sure

   I WILL amount to something

all have a mentor, or a person who inspires...somebody who we respect, and whose criticism we value ... 

This is a good summary of how one feels when not wanting to disappoint the one who so inspires..

Well Done
