Poesía es…

     Poesía es…

 

Poesía eres Tú

               Soy Yo

                      Somos Nosotros

                                 Poesía es…

                                          Pensarte

                                                   Soñarte

                                                            Quererte

                                                                       Poesía…

                                                                               Sin ti,

                                                                                        ¡No es!

La vida es cruel

 

 

La vida es cruel

Cuando tienes todo para ser feliz

Y te sientes triste por algo que esta fuera de tu control

¿Cómo haces para alegrarte?

Cuando tienes ganas de llorar

Y tienes motivos para hacerlo,

¿Por qué no puedes hacerlo?

Es cruel la vida, cuando llega a su final.

Es cruel, cuando se padece de una enfermedad.

Es cruel, cuando la paciencia de toda una vida

No te alcanza, para resignarte a aceptar lo que está escrito.

Es cruel cuando se acerca navidad

Y junto con ella una vida se va.

¡Es cruel!

“… give them wings and they will fly on their own” (R. C.)

Buen día! Good day to you! Bonne Journee!
After practicing my first, second and the third language that I am working on learning, I hope that you are having a great day.  Today, I picked up an inspiration’s book that was given to me by a good friend, when I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from C.S.U.S.B. in 2010.  I opened the book on a random page and it read, “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops” (Henry B. Adams). Then I remembered that a former Citizenship class student called me last week and said, “Teacher Lupita, do you remember me? I am student E. G. I am sorry for not calling you in months. I have been busy, but I came across your phone number and decided to call you.  I want to say thank you, because I passed my citizenship exam and I never returned to tell you about it. Be proud of me! I am a U. S. citizen now and I will be able to vote during the election period.  You are such a great and patient teacher.  Without your help, I would have not done it!” (E. G.). Mr. Adams’ words were right!  Those of us who teach, don’t know or realize how much we can impact someone’s life.   When I think of it, I have no doubt that I am in the right path.  One day, while sharing my experience as a volunteer ESL teacher with a very dear professor, he told me, “If you cannot teach them anything else, make sure to give them wings and they will fly on their own” (R.C.).  Since that day, I have put his advise to practice by teaching my students self confidence and to believe in themselves and I have seen the results.  This is why, I dedicate this blog to all the great teachers and professors that have left a trace in their students’ lives through dedication and patience, but especially to those great teachers/professors that have helped shape my life to become who I am today.  They are an inspiration in my life!
