literacy-class

I do many tasks for others
I teach students and work in an office
I am daughter of my father and my mother
Sister of a brother
Citizen of a country
I behave politely with others 

No one is dissatisfied with me
Everyone loves to have me around
Wants me to sit with them for hours 

Because I make them happy
With my kindness, with smiles
With lovely words 

But sometimes I feel lonely
Very lonely!
No one makes me happy
With some kindness, smiles
And lovely words 

My heart hurts inside
But my face shows happiness outside
It is the way of life
