To some, I’m a parent.
To others, I’m just a judge.
Some think I’m a trusted confidant.
Or someone who provides wise counsel.
They believe I’m a coach and a mentor.
This crop of people even thinks I’m a role model.
Still, others feel I’m always looking too strict and stringent.
But there are those who view me as a glowing source of light!
Someone who illuminates the world to remove glitches of darkness.
They say I’m an embodiment of great wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
Then, there are also those who see me as their favourite hero, with incredible superpowers!
An influential figure who should be obeyed, and who can solve any problems they’re confronted with.
But who am I? What did you say? Did you say a teacher? I guess you’re right.
I must be a teacher.
