Shielding By @MrPat3l
You’ve been asked to shield, to shield from what?
It’s been so long that many people have forgot
Sitting by the window, letting the cool breeze in
Don’t breathe in too much as you’ve been advised by a kin
Some people fear that they’re getting punished for a sin
Stuck in a room, looking at a never-ending wall
Must be a difficult to feel like you’re failing to stand tall
‘We are the imperfect ones, the ones society ignores.
Just because we don’t speak about it, don’t mean our hearts aren’t being torn’.
Lack of communication
Lack of clarification
Where’s the clear direction?
Keep at it as your time will come
We will all be together when matters are overcome.
Try not to give up and keep your light burning
Life won’t feel the same even when the world keeps turning.
Soon it will be time for you to rise like a phoenix
We will work together to try to fix this.
Name: Mr Petal
Place of residence: North of England
Your favourite quote: ‘Verily with hardship comes ease’
Your one wish for the world: I would wish for a united world where differences are put aside and similarities are celebrated.
What teaching means to you: A great responsibility. We are being trusted to provide a platform for children who we hope can have a positive impact in the world we live in. Each child in our care has the potential to positively influence the world in the not so distant future.

A small bio about you: I am a primary education teacher, living in the North of England (in my seventh year of teaching).
