If you ever bothered to open
those beady brown eyes
maybe you'd realize
that the woman standing before us
has done nothing but teach, live and love

If you ever bothered to open
your dull, dark, mind
you'd finally realize
that she is another human too
with emotions that can be torn apart, just like yours

If you ever bothered to listen
you'd hear the knowledge she gives
echoing through you hollow head
and you'd realize the frustration of a woman
who's spent precious hours to get it thrown back at her

If you ever bothered to look
beyond your narrow selfish world
you would realize
that a classroom of eyes glare at your words of hate
and hurt for the one we love

I wrote this poem after a girl in my class wrote this terrible mean poem about my favorite english teacher and read it in front of the class.
