We Were Once They

We were once they.

They remember what you say.

Off the cuff or well thought out,

They remember, without a doubt.

It could seem insignificant;

The mustard seed that you plant.

Make it count. Make it sincere.

It will come back to them some year.

Let them see who you really are,

But take care not to take it too far.

You may let slip that you have a doubt or two;

But that's OK after all...

You are human too.


     - About the teacher inside of you,

About the teacher inside of me too.
