Our Pride: Our Teachers

our-pride-our-teachers

Unselfish souls are called by different names,

some call them generous , some call preachers,

While others call them the god gifted angels,

I call them with modesty, ' my holy teachers'.


You are not hypocrites flaunting knowledge,

but a pathway for a million tiny feet,

you are a strong hand for the confused faces,

for whom you are a life saving treat.


You give hope to the ones who stumble,

guide the blind folded hopeless eyes,

you are not just an enlightening encycopedia

but a terminator to a thousand cries .


You identify the capacity of useless fellow,

you give your all to bring back self confidence,

to you on this auspicious day of joy

I convey thanks for your perseverance.

Teachers are a breed all of their own.

A strong will to help others.

A pathway for a million tiny feet...this is good.
