For My ‘Professor Morrie’

9 Feb

This one’s for my 11th grade English teacher who inspired me to never give up on my dreams and kick ass! It’s juvenile but so was I when I wrote it.

Who's a teacher?

Who’s a teacher?

Someone asked me once, “How will you define a teacher?”
“Are they the ones who impart knowledge to all or give answers to the seekers?”

I pondered over it for a while and then came to a conclusion,
A teacher can be anybody who gives your problems a solution.

A teacher is the one who inspires all,
It’s not just about coursebooks, it’s to pick us up when we fall.

A teacher is someone who helps learn the lessons,
Beyond the education who gives the suggestions.

A teacher can be anyone who teaches you about life,
Be it a blind man, an orphaned kid or a shamelessly beaten wife.

A teacher is somebody who helps in making your dreams come alive,
A person who makes you believe that the world is yours if only you have the drive.

A teacher is someone who gives wings to your imagination,
Who tells you the secret of the stars or helps discover a new place with equal fascination.

All our life, sometimes we are a student and sometimes a teacher,
But what’s important is that we continue to learn no matter how meagre.

A teacher is not only confined to schools and colleges, I say this without a doubt,
Open your eyes and see clearly what a teacher is all about.
