Teacher Unappreciated

by John D. Evans

I want my certificate

Not because it will validate me

Not because I need it

Not because I canít eat or sleep

But because itís mine

It has my name on it

It doesnít matter

If hate is hating on me

It doesnít matter

If Iím hating back

The fact is that itís mine

I may want to make

An airplane out of it

And watch it soar

I may want to create

Origami, a dinosaur

I may want to ball it up

And shoot a hoop

You never know

I may want to frame it
