Poem, a Teacher's prayer...



I want to teach my students more than lessons in a book.
I want to teach them deeper things that people overlook-
The value of a rose in bloom, its use and beauty too.
A sense of curiosity to discover what is true;
How to think and how to choose the right above the wrong,
How to live and learn each day; and grow up to be strong.
To teach them always how to gain in wisdom and in grace, so they
will someday make the world a better brighter place.
Lord, let me be a friend and guide to give these minds a start,
Upon their way down life's long road,
Then I'll have done my part...
