I open my curtains and the light shatters the room with brilliance,
such is the life of a teacher on opening day of the school year.
Fresh minds invade the quiet peace of a marble castle
only to gradually tear down the mortar slivered throughout walls
of academic prowess. These are our children, these are their needs,
and we are licensed to bring them to the next level.
I haven’t cashed out yet, so allow me a story please.
I like to be loved, liked, thought of as a good person,
I usually count on that to battle the voices in my head.
While the days go by I will encounter eager minds,
the students that will live our lives over again tomorrow.
I wish their happiness,
i wish their dreams to explode with much success,
I need to certainly understand my life as I stand here
is designed for them if that is the legacy I choose.
So feel the brilliant rays take over the room,
here we are together on a journey for the year.
Let’s realize goodness together, and let’s hope my hope
is the offer of support, guidance and exemplar notes ahead.
