If They Would Look

They'd See Torn Families
They'd See Abuse
They'd See Stress

They'd See Homelessness
They'd See Self-Harm
They'd See Those Who Have Less

Teachers
Need to Appraise
More than Just Slappin' Down "A's"

Teachers
Need to Yearn
To See Students Truly Learn

They'd Mend Torn Families
They'd Stop Abuse
They'd Relieve Stress

They'd Help Homelessness
They'd Stop Self-Harm
They'd Rescue Those Who Have Less
