To My Teachers

All the roads lead to Rome.
They taught me how to find my way.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
They taught me how to paint it.

All good things come to an end.
They taught me how to start them.
God helps those who help themselves.
They taught me how to make plans.

The grass is greener on the other side.
They taught me how to be satisfied.
In this world, no man is an island.
They taught me how to stay united.

There’s no better time like now.
They taught me how to move on.
Two heads are better than one.
They taught me to not work alone.

When the going is tough, the tough get going.
They taught me to never give up.
People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
They taught me to not be a hypocrite.

I know I can now read a million books.
Or, travel to cities around the world.
But I will always thank my teachers who
changed me from a grain of sand into a pearl.
