creative writing • a real teacher

Updated: Apr 11, 2019


a real teacher empowers and shows

it is safe to step into your own.

a real teacher doesn't show you the way,

a real teacher does it her way.

a real teacher doesn't hide when she falters,

she allows and onward she alters.

a real teacher rarely answers a question,

on a quest she sends you to find your gumption.

a real teacher comes into your life light as a feather,

and whispers you're ready, no words not even a sound.

a real teacher walks gently,

her footsteps weigh not a pound.

a real teacher is not after recognition,

she makes you recognise your own ignition.

a real teacher doesn't teach,

she imparts yet not preach.

when a real teacher speaks,

her words so little yet so much they mean.

a real teacher makes you go within,

yet leaves you never without, through thick and thin.

a real teacher is so much,

yet we never quite know what about.

a real teacher is not a mother,

she is just another.

a real teacher is you,

and in her eyes i see me, my other.
