The Power of Teach
“Give me a fish and I eat for a day. Teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime.”
Chinese Proverb

Children grow and glow
in their own magical ways,
experiencing life
in unique ways.

Flaunting dreams
like a magical wand,
inventing the tales
into the dawn.

Eager to learn
to duplicate adults,
like the monkey see,
the monkey wants to do.

When they are taught skills,
they can help carry the load,
bringing joy and happiness
when they can do that too.

Giving them gifts
brings great delight,
but teaching them skills
brings a better life.

As children enter the world
with the need to supply their own,
how well are they equipped
to provide for their own?
