On this Teacher's Day...

Our teachers taught us the alphabets
They taught us rhymes
They taught us cursive writing
and then stories came alive
But they forgot to teach us how to control what we thought and spoke

Our teachers taught us maths
They taught us to solve problems
They taught us history, geography and English
and then the grades did the roller coaster
But they left out the concept of dealing with success and failure

Our teachers taught us to deal with pressure
They taught us to differentiate between procedures
They taught us to do better
and then we learnt more than what was in the books
But they skipped out on reactions and reacting to feelings and expressions

Our teachers taught us Science
They taught us how machines work
They taught us what to do when things went wrong
And then we dealt with accident and mishaps
But they ignored the lessons that involved politics and being diplomatic

Our teachers taught us about grades
They taught us to aim high
They taught us to look beyond the books
and then we fell into the pit called competition
But they failed to teach us about anger, sorrow and depression

Our teachers taught us many things
They taught us to grow up
They taught us to hold hands
and then we continued battling with things that life threw upon us
But they knew we would survive, stand up if we fall and stand tall making ourselves proud!!

Not just on this day, I remember and thank each and every person who was a mentor, a teacher, a guide and made a difference in my life every day. Some through the lessons they taught, some through their actions, and some who were just there to guide me, some who took me to hospital when I had an accident and visited me home while I recovered, some who brought me books when my book had been misplaced, and some who gave me confidence to rise after a fall and then there are those who are with me everyday, giving me the support and pep talk I need [without me asking for it] ... Happy Teachers' day to all....

Happy Teachers' Day to all the lovely people out there!!

Most of life's lessons were learnt out of the portals of Schools and Colleges as life itself is a great teacher.

Loved your verse.

Joy always,
