Poem-A-Day Challenge Day 10: For an inspiring teacher

Consider it the highest honor,
Dear teacher, when a pupil tells you
“I am ready to go on.”

Indeed I am.

Under your kind instruction,
The world around me seemed
A little more my own each day.

Every day, with your guidance,
I became a little less the student
Who sat in your classroom
At year’s beginning
And a little more the person
I hope to become.
