‘Another Beginning’- Poem by Nathan Dsouza 6K

I kept staring at the school gate, thinking,

here is not where I want to be

Why did I have to be at school?

My life online was going by comfortably.

And then I felt a gentle nudge,

I turned around to see

and there stood my teacher,

smiling and looking straight at me.

Let’s walk through the gate together” she said, “I’ll walk alongside you

And so, we took the step across, and she said “Welcome back to school

As I felt the warm sunshine and looked around the school campus

Nostalgia took over and I wondered why-ever was I nervous.

Her gentle nudge, her warm smile, the gate we crossed together

My teacher gave me the confidence and for this I shall be grateful forever.
