Teachers - Poem by Lawerence Mize, Sr.

Some of the best people
I've ever known
Were teachers who cared
Made me feel at home

They chose not to look
At my ragged threads
Or ask about the chaos
Swirling about in my head

They gave me a sliver of lead
In a piece of wood
To mark the way
So I understood

The years came and went
As I grew and learned
They were always there
With me at every turn

I often think
Of where I might be
If not for the teachers
Who cared about me

    Amazing how someone comes along, unexpected, when we need it most. Very good. (Report) Reply
