Righteous Teachers

As if all they wanted to say was

We hate you

As if all they wanted to show me was how

Small I am to them

That they did not care for my life’s value

That they saw there was none to speak of

That I was small underfoot

That I should get out of the way or fear

And fear I did

Because what does a human do

When life is threatened

I am weak

I know now

That they were my teachers

They were my saviors
