Hero In The Classroom
A simple being, hero in the classrooms,
Pen and lesson plans are his tools
In imparting knowledge to his learners
a father/ mother of almost sixty.
Teaching children of not his blood,
Nurturing then of knowledge flood,
Burning midnight candles,
Doesn't matter all,
their achievements are his goal.
Addressing different learning styles,
With various teaching aids on files,
Preparing a friendly atmosphere,
Even none from his relatives care.
The forgotten hero in the classroom,
Toiling overtime forgetting time,
You wonder he is ...
To My Hometown
The zephyr reminds me of nostalgic memories,
touching my brain softening my heart,
tears cascading from check,
squeezing my entity of childhood quart, .
bringing me to the saddest happiness.
Visualizing the ladderized heights of children -us,
a family of unity in terms of poverty,
a children of unity due to necessity,
