Remembering Martin Luther King…
So many years were gone
Seen with her two eyes children
as a teacher , in life run a marathon.
Move from pencil to pen
So many classes had she seen
so many lessons she taught.
With new thoughts did young minds wean
answers which every time sought.
Being a teacher to educate did strive
with sincere honesty utmost
With this purpose she did thrive
to instill goodness the most!
Minds of varied kinds
some dull some bright
They would seek to answers find
from ignorance come to light
Many turned successful
some doctors some engineers
They were minds not dull
went on to have great careers
Some went wherever life took them
did what they loved to do
But from where does true success stem?
She felt,understand this a very few
When one’s mind has empathy
to love what you understand not
When one is easy to provide help and sympathy
to those who are the have nots
When you don’t judge by how they look
by the color of their skin
Its not all about the books
which make you truly win
If we can only love what is ours
and think narrowly about only our own community
then our education has gone sour
it’s a thing of great pity!
Real education should help to evolve
and make the hearts without prejudice
the issue of hate solve
make one a lover of justice.
To know evil is not bound by skin colors
may it be yellow, white or brown
All it can ever be is a pigment, a pallor
which can be found in any human of any town.
As a teacher this is all I can say
in this my greatest success lies
For what my heart prays
to fill the world with hearts wise
Which know better than to differentiate
based on how one looks or what they wear
Otherwise it’s time to reconsider the state
of your mind and all that you hold dear!
