Let's Talk


Oh teacher,
oh teacher,
How lost we each are.

Both reaching,
both searching,
knowing we are not truly showing who we are.

Will they listen now?
Will they react now?
Are their signs on how they fare?

Why can’t we ask?
Why can’t we pull off our mask?
A simple question, will reveal who we are?

Do you understand me?
Do you understand how to reach me?
Let’s talk and work out what we need and who we are?
