These people are my teachers; it was them who taught to me
the secrets of how I could grow and find who I should be.
Sometimes their role as Teacher, they took by their own choice
at other times it simply fell from wise words they would voice.
Whatever should befall me; where ever I should go
I’ll always carry with me those words that helped me grow.
And whether it be folly or wisdom wise and true
each and every lesson was a seed from which I grew.
