Hero

Poetry Writing 201 Assignment 6: Hero(ine), Ballad, Anaphora/Epistrophe

I teach
In a class
A class of 50
A class of potential
I teach
To contribute
To contribute to nation-building
To effect change
I teach
And I break down
Frustrated
Angry
Angry at the realities of poverty
Angry at the hopelessness of it all
Angry at myself because I can only do so much
I teach
And in spite of myself,
Hope
Hope that it gets better
Hope for these kids
Hope that I make a difference
