Life of a Teacher

This poem started as my comment on Ritu’s (ButISmileAnyway)post ,The Life of a Teacher. I decided to modify, expand and post it on my blog. Ritu, I hope you won’t mind.

Life of a teacher
It’s difficult to define
A profession very fine
Daily riding a roller coaster

Not that of a preacher
Not a father nor mother
May be an elder
Brother or sister

A friend, perhaps
Guide and a philosopher
Moulding and shaping lives
Like a dedicated sculptor

Hope none turns out to be tyrant
Dooming young lives forever to a prison
Patience is a virtue
For teachers it’s so true

Good teacher’s influence never ends
Lessons learnt form a lifelong bond
Good times or bad or times of distress
Those lessons learnt one can always depend

If money is all you crave
Money is the means to an end
Then to be a teacher
You must be very brave

Life of a teacher,
Challenging, yes
Dull, never

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

      1. No, it was wonderful! But I have had a particularly exhausting few weeks, and I spent a long time in bed yesterday, followed by a long lie in this morning, and time with the family today!
        So the Blog was kinda second on my mind! I loved it!
