If I Could Teach Once Again (a poem of inspiration)
Remember the innocent faces of babes,
Their most trusting eyes, to tell,
Teachers, help, we must, in their growth,
Parents, please to raise them well.
Years ago, I gave my best, passed my own test,
And back then, I did go the extra yard,
For Children, fought battles great and small...
Though, most were mighty hard.
Those children, in need, may each succeed,
If they're given a second chance,
Geniuses flourish in their own way,
No matter their disability, race, or circumstance.
Just ask Leonardo, Michelangelo, and all the rest,
Were great masters, and each star to rise,
While those around them, put them down...
their mistakes, later, they did surmise.
As from the most horrid of lives...shall overcome...
Then every bright soul shall shine,
Each, helped along the way by someone,
Forming a good message of hope, in their mind.
Just one believer in them, to meet their needs,
And to give them a boost along the way,
Their spirits to lift, and for every fondest gift,
As to read or write...encouragement, every day.
Some day...years later, you may meet a child,
One that you so helped to blossom, to grow,
Such a blessed feeling of heartfelt thanks,
For your small part, and upon you to bestow.
Scientists, inventors...yes...and writers...huge successes,
Many, in the grandest way of our lives,
Because we cared and with each one shared,
The positive attributes, of all, so thrives.
If I could just teach, precious children, once again,
I'd tell them never to give up.. hold fast, to their dreams,
I would show them the proof of greatest humanity,
This not out of their reach, as it so seems.
I would meet every parent, tell them how blessed,
For each one that they have given a fine life,
I would praise every child, natures, belligerent or mild,
Then to do my best in easing their strife.
