The Blessings

These hard days

I feel like a crazy lady in the classroom
fussing and squawking
giving up on the
kinder interventions
while afternoons spent in
meeting after meeting after meeting
working to fight for our school
with no reponse
again and again

the school system CEO won't answer
the school board won't answer
the mayor won't answer

the silence

and then the state superintendent comes
loving everything she sees
and someone enraged
has the ear of the governor

a little school
in a forgotten neighborhood
reluctantly playing politics
just wanting a better place
for kids

It is the blessings,
always the blessings
which carry us
to the next day
