Poem: For every child

Here’s a little poem I wrote for one of my close friends a few years ago when he had embarked upon a new journey in his teaching ambitions.


For every child that dares to dream
and every spark of curiosity within

For their bold endeavors in jest
and that one kid’s flying quest

Persist your passion to build their nest
for the world rumbles them in unrest

Swivel their failings with your empathy
and rivet their pursuits like a fall under gravity

A future needs to be built,
one without ethical guilt

Go build a world that’s green
And satiate your world within.


It’s been great to watch my friend pursue and progress on this cause of better mentoring the world’s future.
