How I Teach

What I teach
You will forget
So I will teach it again
Until you get it
I promise that
I will not get angry
When you don’t understand
Tell me you don’t understand
And I am happy
To teach it again
If you come to me with an empty cup
I will fill it up
If you come to me with a cup that is full
There is nothing I can teach you
And nothing you can learn
I will try
To take the scales from your eyes
To start a fire
With the branches and brambles you bring
And make a light
In the darkness
To warm you
Before you strike out on the road ahead
