Advice to my pupils before I withdraw

To conquer you should at both ends the candle burn By leaps and bounds seek long to sojourn In the arena of knowledge imbibe from every stream Lend an ear to your flaws,don't be so swift to overesteem You would later eventually society confront Malefactor throngs from all edges affront The road of success is not of any thorns devoid Pursue unpretentious learning and haughtiness avoid Don't your teachers attempt to clone Make a carbon copy of them or their image atone We cheatingly have treasured our own strains and weakness Superbly camouflaged them and denied our faultiness If despite all,you sense you the plateau reached Bowing out would quell our gusto to teach.
