Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Four Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...

For My Students

You are The Future….

The next Doctor, Lawyer, Judge, Teacher, President, or someone really famous is probably in this Classroom…

Probably looking at me right now with those sparkling eyes, with that pretty smile, or handsome face, looking at me with funny looks or playing with their books… I know you are in this room and you will grow up soon.

I can’t wait for you to stop playing around, pick the books up, read, read, read until you succeed, succeed, succeed.

I know you are in this room even though you can’t sit still or like to procrastinate, I still see a crown on your head.

I wait for you, because I believe in you….You are the Future and right now you might not understand, but I do, that’s why I asked the Poet to write this poem for You…

Every One of You has a Gift that you will one day discover because You are the Future…

I see those gifts in your determination as you face peer pressure, family pressure, with strength that make your Ancestors smile at the Hope they see in many of you.

Make your parents proud, make yourself proud…You are Special, always have been always will be.

I believe in you and I expect great things from each and everyone of you...

You can hide from the great things I see inside of each of you...

      I like this, Poetic. This is uplifting, motivational and the decent and noble thing to say. A really original and trustworthy approach. God bless you, my Brother.

      Thank You for your thoughts, all children have been endowed with gifts, it is the responsibility of the adults to nurture, protect and guide them, for they are the Future...
