​A TEACHER

Every teacher is a potter
One who digs the clay of the mind

And gives it moisture

Amidst pounding and kneading

To get the right texture

Setting it on the wheel in direction

To mould the right item  through heat in finality


II

Every teacher is a farmer

One, who prepares the land of all ready minds

For knowledge planting

Choosing the best seed based on the type of soil

Is a teacher’s blessing in wisdom

Knowing the weeds which will burden

And finding time to weed them out of the planted 

Is a natural duty 


III

Every teacher is a driver

A driver of the unenlightened to enlightened destinations

Knowing not the right route will cause the loss of all passengers

Driving without a license will cause unnecessary delays

A driver knows that time is imperative to all on board

A corrupt driver shows quick and diabolic routes to passengers

Power drunkenness and speed can cause a fatal accident


IV

A teacher is like a writing god

One who writes not on pads but in mind

One whose mistakes have no ready erasers

One whose soil lives on his dictate in fertility

One who can make and break

There is no greater life led not in teaching

A teacher is a director

A director of all minds
