Daily Prompt: Mentor Me – In Honor of My Mentor

Daily Prompt

Lessons Learned

As soon as I saw you
I knew I wanted
to be you, to have
a life like yours that
used our knowledge
for good, for creating
a better world,
for giving voice to
the voiceless,
for lighting the way
to prosperity for all.
And so I hounded you
until you let me study
let me stay under
your wing, trusting me
with your word and your name
until I could soar on my own
and you were proud
to call me yours.
Thank you for believing
that I could continue
your work. I hope,
now that you’ve moved on
to a higher plane,
that I’m doing justice
to your life, and
to our calling.

  1. Beautiful and wonderful. This has been one of the better responses I’ve seen. Sadly I’ve seen quite a few responses that were, “I don’t think I’ve had a mentor or anyone I’d consider a Mentor to me”. I enjoyed reading your response. Thank you for sharing!
