The Best Teachers

In the eyes
Of a child
The world
Is a magic place
Where imaginations
Run free and wild
Where dreams are possible
And not known
Is the meaning
Of the word
To me the greatest teachers
Are not the ones
Who teach children

What to think
But the ones
Who teach them
To think for
Themselves instead
And instead of
Letting dreams die
They encourage
Those dreams
To learn to fly
The best teachers
Are not the ones
Who try to force
The child out
Of the adult
It becomes
But encourages
To never
Let the child
The dreamer
In them ever die
