Perpetual Teacher

Are you still teaching

guilty lessons from the grave?

Why can’t I just learn?

“You, who are on the road must have a code that you can live by.
And so become yourself because the past is just a good bye.

Teach your children well, their father’s hell did slowly go by,
and feed them on your dreams, the one they picks, the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
so just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

And you, of the tender years can’t know the fears that your elders grew by,
and so please help them with your youth, they seek the truth before they can die.
Teach your parents well, their children’s hell will slowly go by,
and feed them on your dreams, the one they picks, the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
so just look at them and sigh and know they love you.”

Teach Your Children, Crosby Stills Nash & Young

  1. Some lessons continue to take place I think because of the manner in which they were taught.

  2. I still learn every day…..just hope one day my daughter will understand me….and find her dreams…
