THE BLIND TEACHER BY JASEN SOUSA


THE BLIND TEACHER


It’s the first day of school.
I walk into class,
you see me
and decide I am not going to pass.

Because I am not dressed the same as everyone else
you consider me a problem,
I bet the thought has passed through your head, that if
I was hard up for money, I would
find someone wealthy and rob them.

The year goes on, I pass in work
and never receive a good grade,
you make me feel so dumb,
I want to introduce my wrists to a blade.
If you only took the time to realize
the knowledge I possess,
and with my home life a mess, you only
contribute to the pain in my chest.

I am passing this in to the teacher who is blind.
What you witness is one of a kind,
look beneath my appearance
and I’m sure you’ll be surprised what you find!
