Every child, in his uniqueness, has a name,
And no other, under Heaven, is the same.
So if teachers would be fair, they should reserve,
The unique and tailored treatment they deserve.
On the surface equal portions may seem fair,
For each child will therefore hold an equal share.
But true "fairness," in the script of higher creeds,
Is when each child holds exactly what he needs.

Some say success is in fortune and fame,
Or winning the crown in a championship game.
Some say success is in riches and gold,
Or trophies and medals - That's what we've been told.
We worship the winners who shine in the race,
And shame all the trailers who hold second place.
We train our poor children to only be best.
"Success is just when you're ahead of the rest."
We tell them success is an A or a B,
And that something is wrong if they bring home a C.
"What's wrong with the teacher?
Why can't my child pass?
My child's name should be at the top of the class.
My taxes are spent and remain in their pay,
So why is my genius not getting an A?
My child is not average," They say as they're riled.
"That place is reserved for the neighborhood child."
But God in His wisdom, when making this race,
Did not make us equal in talent and grace.
For some of us run, but then others are lame.
But both share success if they try just the same.
If you came up short when you went for the A,
But gave it your all till the very last day,
And effort was made to be all you can be,
You're still a success if you brought home a C.
When you know that you gave it all, then you'll find,
That self-satisfaction gives sweet peace of mind.
And that peace of mind, that you only possess,
Is your declaration that you're a success.
