I admit if you’re talking about


Green pieces of mint paper with dead presidents on them


Then yeah, they don’t make a whole lot


 


However, I do know one that makes millions


He has a pocket full of change


Changes he makes in other peoples lives


Not only in their hearts but in their minds


And to tell you the truth


His only tool


It’s no secret


It’s Honesty


 


For he’ll make me display all my work


Not because he does believe me … oh no


But just to help me illustrate my path to success


All my imperfections and flaws


Are no match for his articulate mixture of the red ink


That crosses throughout my page of life


 


He can make me


He can break me


He can make my knees tremble in fear every time he calls my name


“Vanessa”


And then surprise me with two words … “Good-job”


 


He can make me believe that raising my grade from a “D” to a “C” in Econ


Is a Medal of Honor


And he can make me feel one inch tall for lowing my grade from a “B” to a “C” in English


Saying,


“A lazy person can never find time, but an industrious person can always make time”


Then turns around and gives me a hug for getting the top grade on the semester final


But I didn’t do it alone


Spending Fridays after school


Making sure I had all I need to study for the test over the weekend


 


And when I say over and over again…


“I can’t, I can’t, I CAN’T DAMN IT!”


He slams the book on the table and says,


YOU CAN!”


 


He makes me mean every word


He makes me think which path to take


He makes me question myself and those around me


He makes me analyze all my flaws, but never, never lets me devalue my worth


 


He makes me makes me spell words


Words that at first I didn’t even knew existed


And finally told me that “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” isn’t a real word


And that “Antidisestablishmentarianism” is


He makes me spell and pronounce words that are difficult


Over and Over and Over Again


 


He makes Lawyers, Lawyers


He makes Doctors, Doctors


He makes a fortune with every classroom he instructs and every student he encounters


You don’t know how you could ever get along with out him


 


Teachers are the ones who make millions


Teachers are the ones who make a difference in the lives of many


Including mine


That’s the fortune; try taking that to the BANK!
