Teachers of Light and Darkness
By: Summra Akale

O’ teachers…
Why are you here?
Are you here for us, precious students?
Or just to make $

That is why there are three types of teachers :
Teachers of Light,
Teachers of Darkness, and
Teachers of Both

When Teachers of Darkness come
They fill the classroom with horror
As the students shudder with strange thoughts
While the teacher is teaching

When Teachers of Light come
They fill the classroom with delightness
As the students learn with pleasure
While the teacher teaching

As the Teachers of Both come
They fill the classroom with unexpectedness
As the students are filled with mixed thoughts
While the teacher is teaching

When teachers come for the first day class
They fill their classroom with hope, horror, or both
That is why we students have to be prepared
Challenge our teachers with dignity and courage

So teachers I want you to know
We students are prepared for any looping curve
That you hit us either with horror or pleasure
We students can deal with your horrors, hopes, and both

Encourage us if we don’t well
Instead of framing us …
Be a partner with our parents
Instead of bickering

Don’t you know?
Your are our 2nd parents
Don’t you know?
We are the children of United States
Don’t you know?
We carry the responsibility of our country
Don’t you know?
We carry the torch of glory to shine through the world

Take the school as your home
Teach us as your kids
Protect us from outside danger
Accept us as your children,
Teach us love to love you and others
Respect us to respect you and others
Encourage us to support you and others
Don’t forget, we care about your careers
You have the power to make us nice as the heavens…
