A Daily Prompt Poem: Greatness

The Daily Prompt states: What makes a teacher great?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us GREATNESS.

 

Having money? No.

Throwing a ball fast and far? Not so much.

Caring for others with selfless devotion? Yes.

A great teacher was great because he taught from his heart.

He taught others children as if they were his own.

Greatness is actions more than words.

 

The nurse who sat bedside for the lonely, dying stranger.

The neighbor who walked through the pouring rain,

to find my dog.

Then offered me a hot a coffee when Rover was discovered hiding in the basement.

The mom, and dad, who held the little one’s hand, when she was sick.

The friend who is always there, always.

 

Greatness is not replaceable, like the sun.

Greatness emanates from the light within one’s soul.

You cannot buy greatness.

Be what you are, and greatness may find you.
