School Daze

Tammy’s tears are flowing,
Little Johnny pulled her hair.
Susie spilled her milk,
Now Jesse’s on a tear.

Dear Lord please give me strength,
To be patient and be calm.
Remember they are children,
To anger don’t succumb.

My teacher never told me,
I’d have days like these.
Never said the sweet young things,
Could bring me to my knees.

How God’s own little wonders,
Can turn the devil’s ear.
Is a mystery unto me,
It will always be unclear.

Take a breath and count to ten,
My composure now regained.
I remember why I’m here,
Must get back in the game.

That they have a better life,
I have pledged to do my part.
The children I will teach,
To them, I give my heart.
