The Teacher

There are show men
And braggarts
And self proclaimed gurus pedaling gilded connection
They’ll sell you spirituality like a roadside tourist trap
You can leave with Transformational Experience on a keychain

And then there are teachers
And thinkers
And livers of life
And breathers or air
And riders of horses

Who will tell you there are no real steps
No program
No hat you can buy
No magical stick

Except to listen, observe
And think

And the difference
Is they don’t have to tell you they are spiritual
Or connected
Or a guru

They just are

And thoughtful people settle quietly around them
Like a flock of birds
And listen more than they speak
To the quiet voice
Of a true teacher
