We are not Superheroes
Updated: May 3
Franklin Richards Dreamed up a whole Universe To keep his family safe The Scarlet Witch Change the world with Three Simple Words Superpowers give them the power Power to live their dreams To shift reality To pull those strings of fate Sometimes just a gentle tug Others an unravelling Teachers have dreams Dreams for our students Dreams for our school Dreams for ourselves But we don't have Super powers I can't snap my fingers and *snap* Away goes their anxiety *snap* Away goes their fears and doubts *snap* Away goes the bullying and the hardships We wish we could or at least I wish I could Instead we can be there we can talk we can lift But who is there for us? Teachers are not Superheroes Don't let the Merchants of Nonsense Fool You With their quick fixes and slick smiles Teachers are people People who want the best for their kids Our gifts don't lie in fantastic powers but we do have our own four words How Can I Help? Dreams are funny So often they are just out of reach But we keep reaching Keep Trying Sitting right on the edge Today I wonder if I am reaching too far If the dream is too big If only I had powers.
We are working on spoken word poetry in the next few weeks. So giving it a little try.
