You Are the Teacher

Rita Joe
Canadian
1932 – 2007

 

I wrote in verse what bothered me
The lies recorded in history
And beautiful words became my tool
Showing our life, a golden rule
And if our children today respond as much
You my people are their teacher,
Sharing,
They in turn will honor your word
And future generations they touch
