A Teacher's Prayer

Updated on October 10, 2011

A Teacher's Prayer

When you’re discouraged, never fear.

Remember love has brought you here.

For every trip and fall you make,

Pick up, move on, learn from mistake.


Let your spirit’s light shine through

Everything your heart beats to.

And know that people need your praise

To lead them through life’s winding maze.


You are a true gift, this I know

Because you help young minds to grow.

There is no goal you cannot reach,

For you've blessed the world with what you teach.

~K. Koali. H

      ....gee I wish I had you as a teacher when I was a kid - but when I arrive at your hallowed hubspace and look around at all of your great hub choices - well I still feel like a kid in a candy store - so the bottom line is -you can tatoo my kitty anytime - lol - and on a serious respectful note with profound words like these in such a moving hymn of dedication I will proudly post your poetic manifesto to my Facebook page for all of my students with a direct link back here.

      Whoops. The add space is covering the right portion of the poem for some odd reason. I'll check back.

      This teacher's prayer poem is very inspirational and so true. Sometimes teachers may never know just how important they were in a young person's life!

      Great poem. AND a nice flow to it. The printing is small for some reason, donlt know why. It’s great to see a new HUBBER and welcome to HUB writing. I found I enjoyed this very much. You have this laid out beautifully and it is easy to understand. Keep up the great HUBS. I must give this an “Up ONE and awesome.” I'm always your fan! RJ

      Based upon your HUB, you might enjoy this HUB…
