Tuesday as a Teacher: A Short Poem

The sun hasn’t risen yet I have;

I sit and work on making

the right moves for the kids I teach;

to make things right for them,

from love of their future

to healing their past,

and making the days they

try so hard to endure at present,

a pathway to the peace and safety they have earned..

..and sometimes are denied by the world,

or those they go home to.

I am the doorway.

I must be open for them–

and show them a path of love.
