Topic: Teaching Life's Gift
I guess the reason why we write poetry and song sometimes is to either encourage or change people negative perceptions on life. I wrote this for a young teacher who is heading to a new town and a school that has a bit of reputation for having difficult students next year. He wasn’t feeling confident about the year ahead. I have had a go at singing it with my guitar. Its attached here if you want to have a watch listen. If any one wants to have a go at it that would be real cool. Happy New Year everyone.
