Teachers are Teachers



One day I was sitting sad
I was feeling bad
Or you may say depressed
The problem I was in
I told to none
Neither I expressed
Then came my dad
To me he asked
How are you son?
Why are you silent
Won't you talk to dad
He came near
I couldn't control tears
A few drops trickled
On my cheeks
He wiped it and told
Don't take anything to heart
You didn't complete your home-works
Assignments and you got scolded
Teachers are teachers
They are not your enemy
They are good among many
They want you to be a good child
They handle every students with due care
Sometimes with praise
Sometimes with chide
With love to mould you
To cultivate good habits
To discourage bad habits
