A Teacher… - Poem by Roshan Sabapathy

Is one who learns about life constantly.
Is one who keeps young by growing up again and again.
A teacher is one who knows nothing about the workings of life,
But he is able to rationalize each event of a life.

A teacher is usually looked up to,
But he never looks down.
A teacher learns as much as he teaches.
A teacher is a permanent student!

A teacher gives knowledge without reserve,
He gives himself and pieces of his life.
A teacher shows the way which he thinks is the best,
But he listens and is never afraid to try new ways.

A teacher leads,
But mostly he follows.
He shows his students how to lead,
And when they have learnt it well,
He follows.

A teacher is a person.
