First Attempt at a Triolet

I just learned about the triolet form a few weeks ago, and I've been meaning to try it. I certainly haven't perfected the form in one shot, but this was fun and I look forward to trying again.

Triolet #1
I gave up my literary voice
for the sake of extra education.
Thinking that I didn't have a choice
I gave up. My literary voice
was sent away; I failed to rejoice
in my academic suffocation.
I gave up. My Literary Voice
was nothing but a tepid imitation.
