I dedicate this poem to the PK21 scholars I am currently in close contact with for Kalsom Academy. Thank you for being my daily boosters and giving this aspirational teacher the noble opportunity to help you reach unthinkable heights.
Petals of Hope
Dear young blooming soul
You ought to be shaped by the best of mould
To grow tall and proud towards the sunlight
To defy gravity in reaching great heights
To realise your beauty, potential and might.
Your striking petals will expand, stretch out
And your roots will venture down the many routes.
Hear now! be convinced and told
That you are our hope, our precious gold
Cultivating you, my own ultimate goal.
Here is an opportunity with an evident power
To transform your life and the life of another.
So dear fresh flourishing spirit
Always seek to rise, never think of quit
Because your triumphs, when they arrive, the world will be lit.
