Teaching to care


Why do we go through life in a haze?

Shouldn't we be illuminating the room with a blaze?

Why don't we spend time telling people we care?

Why isn't it at all fair? 

Teachers, shouldn't you take time to stare?

Asking what it is that we bear?

Instead we waste away the time.

As long as it isn't a crime.

As we trudge on unnoticed, we pass.

Aren't you at all worried about your class?
