Day 25 – Teacher

Day 25 – Teacher 

The hardest thing,
Is remembering I cannot go back.

I know you are proud of me,
The way you would smile,
When I told you,
All I’ve accomplished.

You told me once not to be scared,
Of being the only voice,
Like me,
In a room.

I will never forget it,
History to you was the present,
And you taught me that lessons,
Extend beyond the classroom.

I think of you when I take a breath,
Raise my hand,
And speak,
Even though my words may be different.

The hardest thing,
Is remembering you,
But the easiest thing,
Is living your lessons,
And teaching,
Your legacy.
