And little children, innocent by heart,
Sink them not in acid of ,
Your ill character and foul talk.
As we see now-a-days.
Do edify your soul,
Before teaching them one-and-four.
Never teach for God`s sake,
If you fail to do so,
It will burn their innocence.
Acquaint them with true spirit of,
The education
And knowledge, if you can!
Then teach flowers of paradise,
A and B, if you can.
The nation otherwise never gets,
The shade of their branches!
Which they desperately need.
Show them who they are, what their existence is,
Show them how they are the best creation,
The pride of GOD.
Above all creations, they are,
The falcon of Iqbal`s [RA] pen!

      Beautiful. You speak to the teaching profession, but you also focus on the power of interacting with fellow human beings. This is a powerful and compelling work. Thank you.
