POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif - Social Good ~ If I am an Educator ~


Midweek Motif: Social Goods

My Choice  from Mr Mohandas Gandhi ji's 
Seven Deadly Sins of Society         

                                       'Education Without Character'

If I am an Educator
My talk and walk should show
My vision of where to go
In the future
My work should prove
My mission to improve
The learners
The beginners
The misled
Good;
I believe that our spirits
are not yet dead;
Just at odd moments I feel
Have I failed
The Message
To reveal?
The mist still floats 
At times with the breeze
Descends amidst the trees                 
Is it here to stay
Or is it to warn us
Of The Good Right Way?

  1. Wow! This poem speaks for me and other teachers as well. What is our own character? How do we reach and stretch our students? Character is at stake as we open our futures!

    1. Teachers are Guides and Role Models for the coming generations.I believe they need professional training and the best quality education themselves to justify their work in the classroom.Thank you we work and think on the same lines may Allah help and guide us amen

  5. I couldn't agree more - children look at teachers as role models and they will emulate the good (or the bad) that it displayed.
    Thank you for your willingness to be a good model - best to you!!!

    1. Children often listen more to their teachers.I believe they are second Mothers too- most of the time kids are with them in school.I followed the school shooting incident in USA and was deeply grieved-I honor the Teachers who gave their lives to save lives.That was true exemplary character.

  6. My hope is that "the mist" will stay always. But we just don't seem to know how to create an educational system that teaches what's important. Glad there are responsible teachers though. And I'm hopefull we'll find a way.
