I wonder if you realize the time we imagine
the words we deliver might benefit the fine
beauty of the child,
taming of the wild.
We don’t ask to change a child’s life
we don’t imagine to understand strife
we offer all our time
with every bell chime.
The other day I walked outside and recognized
an error on my part is certainly ill advised.
Why would I choose pain,
what could be the gain.
I stand before you all daily in my classroom
I would welcome anyone until there were no room.
Yet I need to find an answer
I need to know the future.
I wish I could look you in the eye with a pleasant smile
suggest that what you worry about today is not your last mile
just another daily rule
to understand, why school.
We stand before you with hope and prayer and layered love
would not you think if we didn’t act to be your dove
we’d rather you be miserable,
we’d hold you inside a stable.
I stood in my classroom today and looked around the room
I wish the eyes I see today, could recognize truly the zoom.
this moment is a blip
in years your ideals flip.
Love in our future would be the goal of anyone needing peace
So please give liberty to the idea of some disrespectful release.
A humble teacher we are today
We only wish to delight your way
