“You are a teacher” said he

“I’m a student” said I

I used to deny it myself” said he, “but so many people told me I was a teacher that I started

To believe it”

*~*~*~I am a student…..

*~

My teacher is the guy on the garbage truck spewing rap from the streets….

*~

My teacher is the eyes of a child sent to school with no food in his belly….*~

*~

My teacher is the breath of the wind and the voice in the shadow….

*~

I am a student of what I don’t know, of who I am not……

*~

I am a student of social injustice and war torn lands and famine…..

*~

I am a student of the gluttonous, the wealthy, and the indifferent….

*~

Of the weak and the strong, the sick and the well, of mental illness and intelligence…

*~

I’m a student of senseless brutality, bigotry, prejudice and the homeless…..

~*

*~I am a student…….
