Teach Me


Teach me and I will learn

Instead of pushin’ me away

Show me a way

Instead of calling me dumb

Make me smart

My hand is out

I’m willing to learn

Teach me and I will learn

When will it be my turn?

Like Dr. King, I have a dream

Stop the pain, it burns

Don’t smoke your mind away

It’s there for a reason

Teach me and I will learn


  1. Beautifully said.

  2. I love the repetition in this poem. I think it brings out the urgency in the writer’s tone, and emphasizes his desire to learn and grow. It’s a simple, powerful poem.
