Deserving

December 16, 2016, Prescott-

Today was long,

because of wind, and rain.

Two of our boys fought us,

tooth and nail,

over the tests the class took.

Self- determining a curriculum

is something that

requires inner discipline.

Our students don’t

exactly  have that,

in spades.

I overheard a girl

saying that one

of the boys

likes every girl

in the school.

She said he was named

for an angel,

but couldn’t pass for one.

I think every girl

deserves to be liked.

As with boys,

that liking should

be for who she is inside,

and for her dreams.

As with boys,

girls need to know

they are surrounded

by unconditional love and encouragement.

How is it that doesn’t go without saying?

    • It is the innocence of a child, that every true adult will acknowledge and honour. The individual, herself, ought to have the leeway of letting that innocence morph into character strengths.

  1. I believe that love is a natural emotion, but that it is strongly enhanced or destroyed during early learning. Too, every kid deserves to be liked or loved — but some learn how not to be likable, thus learning how not to deserve that emotion.
