Oh my dear teacher,
You are just like a star,
Your words are so accommodating,
Which I know I’m adapting.
I love your teaching because it makes me understand
that I can stand.
Even if I try to take education for fun,
I realise it’s not fun.
Your teaching is just like a foundation,
which will later come to the realization.
Even though I later run away,
destiny will always bring me to stay.
I know someday,
I am going to fly so high in the sky
like the shiny stars.
