Lesson Learned

The prompt on the OctoPoWriMo site was about lessons learned. After two pages of journal scribbles, it was difficult to create a poem about how I feel about the school system structure. At least how I experience it as a substitute teacher for our local high school..

I wish that all that I have learned

after the final high school bell 

could be gently wrapped up as a gift

so that you could choose for yourself

the life experience knowledge, lessons that would 

make you curious to try

instead of being pushed into life

without a net

  1. As a retired teacher of middle school, your poem really resonates with me. Apathy is a huge threat to society. Thank you. xoA
