What Teachers Do

I notice my breathing is shallow. I wonder what to do.
I notice my mind racing, blanking out, spacing out. I wonder why that is.
I notice I'm thirsty. I wonder when my next bathroom break will be.
I notice my full calendar. I wonder if anyone does, too.

I notice my love for my youth. I wonder what their future holds.
I notice my ambitions for myself. I wonder if I'll ever get there.
I notice so many problems. I wonder if I will ever fix them all.
