Reaching the top of my journey,

the pinnacle of my childhood dream,

I saw two roads

One that glittered in the distance

And another that weathered beneath my feet.

Every step I took hurt

I threaded my path carefully with tears

Realising that what I had just achieved

was not the end

but the beginning.

The beginning of a mission

to open the minds of the little ones

and impart knowledge,

To shine the light on their paths

So they too can reach the pinnacle of their dreams.

As I retraced my route back to my roots

I lost sight of the road

That glittered in the distance

Maybe I’ll go there someday

But until then I must continue my mission.
