A thank you to teachers who care.
Teaching, leading, guiding
reading, math, and writing
you did it all.
Learning is meant to be inspired
not teaching tests so you later get hired.
Granted after school I’ll need a job
but as a student I’m not a blob.
A blob to be over passed
once I’ve passed your class.
Im still a human.
Boys and girls
full of dreams and aspirations
to be know
to change the world and all its nations,
or maybe to be a doctor and save the lives of their patients
And if not that maybe a cop or fireman,
or maybe a behind the scenes life
without all the stages and mic stands.
But whatever my dream
I still have a life
and its full of joy and stryfe.
You understood that.
I wasn’t even in your class and I can truly say you
made the greatest impact.
See I was a messed up kid.
Mommy ‘s with Jesus is all they ever said
and all that did was make me mad,
or the farthest thing from glad,
They said at least you’ve got your dad...
But how could Jesus take her was the question in my head,
she had been here before
now she’s gone,
These were the thoughts running through my mind
and even in elementary I had to hide them behind
The happy, little Benny that everyone knew.
Year after year that part of me never came through.
Then along came you.
