The Green and Gold Project

Today we are meeting with the little kids,

second graders, they said.

Uh oh, don’t think I will be good at this.

My young years were the toughest and to this day,

they are giving me trouble.

Don’t think I can handle the responsibility,

and besides, I’m not a teacher kind of person.

Perhaps you can say, today I am here by default.

And then the unexpected happened…

a bunch of bright-eyed, bushy-tailed kids walked in,

they had the chutzpah to be startlingly exciting.

And the shy ones,

who could only whisper their thoughts,

and I understood and related, because a long time ago,

I was one of them.
