What Matters


Listen you say to get an A

and do your work to succeed

you say to ask questions about things i don't understand

because there are no stupid questions


but here I am infront of you

blank faced and empty minded

not absorbing what you say

I ask

why why why

you choose to ignore me

you laugh at me and mock me

I ask for help and you offered your help

but to my disappointment

it was an empty promise

when you give an F do you wonder why?

don't judge me for my grade

rather ask the reason why I failed to understand

don't give up on me please

I know I'm quiet slow

but please help me

TEACHERS are called teachers to TEACH

not crush their student's dreams and

and underestimate their intelligence
