To All the Teachers I've Ever Had

To all the teachers I've ever had:
the ones I deemed, good, great, or bad;
I'd like to say, "Thank you for investing in me."

I was younger, really rebellious. and reckless,
but you pushed me to my potential
and encouraged me to not settle for any less. 

I was plagued by youthful ignorance,
but you saw me as youthful innocence. 

I was a hopeless,
      at times scared,
but you listened (sincerely)
      and actually cared. 

I was lost from my own path,
and direction you gave me. 
I didn't see my own worth,
but you helped show me. 

I hope my kids will have teachers like you.
