Teaching During Covid-19

 Covid-19 left me wondering
 what’s worth more
 being authentically me
 living the dream to educate
 or debate sitting in place
 so I wouldn’t catch a case
 spread a deadly fate
 to those I relate to
 risk my life just for the sake of
 learning, the world is burning with
 split decisions that’s sending
 people on a race against human
 skin color does not relate
 to the hate that’s being injected with fear
 and I hear, I’m labeled essential now
 gear up against an enemy playing guerrilla warfare
 and I’m aware of what’s needed
 that a vaccine or quarantine can’t guarantee
 put simply, choice is a matter of control
 and the only thing I have that totally over is me,
 so while the rush is on for some
 to have teachers on the front-line
 I’ll remind those that the bigger picture
 is not what it’s made to seem
 guess when focus is on selfish things
 my life is deemed worth sacrificing,
