I am mother.
I pride myself in being a strong African woman,
Exhibiting all my duties accordingly
Without being weary or slacking in my responsibilities.
To my children, I am a super mom.
But I tire sometimes of the overwhelming responsibilities that lay before me,
Then I have my husband to support me and look after me
Together, we run the home smoothly without loopholes.
Then there are teachers,
Mothers, fathers, aunties, uncles, brothers and sisters who make the world a saner place.
Never tiring of the responsibilities of looking after and taking care of the children
Impacting unto them the knowledge and courtesy they need to know to tackle life
For teaching us the ABCs of life, we appreciate our teachers
For not sparing the rod, we are indebted to you
For being our guardian when our parents were not there, we love you
For giving us the memories of life and school, we remember you today…
As we appreciate you today on World Teachers’ Day,
We wish you a Happy Teachers’ Day
