please do not disturb





i said goodbye
but I can’t stay away
how can i
you’re the home in
i learned to love
your walls heard my tears
your hallways saw my antics
your door always greeted me
parents absent friends influenced
my dresses, writing, laugh never wavered
when it’s quiet and the summer heat thick
i’ll come visit
you deserve to be loved too.

what’s next



by day I’m ready to teach
ignite curiosity for knowledge
promote excitement for application
by night I’m still a student
honing my educating approach
pursuing my writing, my dream
to be quintessential in showing grit
so I’m not just a speaking influence
I’m a telling model to my students
set goals, work hard and achieve.
