Hope’s Eyes

Every school year brings challenges to our youngest learners in the classroom.  These struggling children find hope in a teacher, administrator, custodian, instructional assistant, or any other type of mentor.  This is the hope of this poem.

Fearing tomorrow’s tasks

Dreaming of something more

Probing life’s gloomy path

Failing again to score

 

Meeting darkness once more

Ignoring teacher’s clues

Bearing sounds of silence

Surrounding failure’s blues

 

Learning nothing today

Parking in empty space

Sharing with hidden friend

Reaching familiar place

 

Retreating to safe zone

Boarding life’s empty plane

Watching goals crushed again

Seeing more fire than rain

 

Entering new classroom

Looking into hope’s eyes

Hearing assuring voice

Launching learning’s sunrise
