#The Teacher

By exerting gentle pressure with a nurturing heart,

You endeavor to mold us to the best of art

Determined not to renounce on us,

Even if occurs the cracks.

Filling the gaps and handling us with extreme care

You try repeatedly surrounding the positive atmosphere.

Believing that every soul has the potential for greatness

Awakens us with your greatest virtue of selflessness

You change our fragile earth to a formed-shape, salvaging us from every fall

My humble regards always at the feet of all!
