I am the child…
Reading is hard.
I try to fit in,
scarred to say the wrong words,
hoping no one laughs,
not wanting to speak,
or have all eyes on me.
Just wishing for a chance to shine.
I am the teacher…
finding joy in student’s success
disappointment when they fail
wanting to help them rise
giving them their chance to shine.
