Lunchtime Musings

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 1:00 PM
Lunchtime Musings

I am here
trapped beneath
a seemingly endless mountain
of ungraded words

trying my best
to play catch up
while catching them
up to where they should be

teaching is a struggle

love and long hours
overdue props
nerves shot to hell
definitely worth
the smile
you get
when they understand

    The struggle continues, but It's all worth it at the end of the day when you see that gleam in someone's eyes. Yes, it is beautiufl.
    Thanks for stopping by and take care of yourself. Btw, I hope your own child is doing great as well? :)
