Best Poem of Abdalla Juma Shenga


After a tiresome time at school
With a long stride I walk home
I walk thinking, what went missing
Along the dusty roads I keep thinking

Who among many did I leave a fool?
My thoughts get congested like a traffic jam
Are my students getting what I’m teaching?
Slowly I continue walking

Did I use the right tool?
Was I unfair to some?
Who kept watching,
Unknowingly floating

Knowledge is vast, it’s no small pool
For the diligent it’s light, lighter than foam
For others it’s tough, they keep struggling
Slowly I keep walking

I try ...

Read the full of Teaching


A lion will rejoice
In the birth of an antelope
But does an antelope rejoice
In the birth of a cub?

Life is not fair
It’s never meant to be
The weak
will be weak
