Abdul Qudus A Poem By Vicki Kypuros


Abdul Qudus
Going into this class I had no idea that this man by his appearance could ever touch my life
He slept on dirt and as a child had to select his mothers burial site in Pakistan
Most people are selfish, materialistic, and conforming
He cares enough, he is willing to pay more taxes for his fellow countrymen to have benefits
He slept on dirt and as a child had to select his mothers burial site in Pakistan
Education has been his focus, getting it and giving it
He cares enough, he is willing to pay more taxes for his fellow countrymen to have benefits
He has worked so very hard and is deserving of the glorious retirement and life he has planned, sitting on the bank of a lake listening to poetry and sipping some drink
Education has been his focus, getting it and giving it
Rocks, minerals, earth, its age and plate tectonics are what was he was required to teach
He has worked so very hard and is deserving of the glorious retirement and life he has planned, sitting on the bank of a lake listening to poetry and sipping some drink
It was in his tears and his smile along with his genuineness that my eyes were opened
Rocks, minerals, earth, its age and plate tectonics are what was he was required to teach
As he taught the requirements of the course he made sure to make us aware of what was going on all around us
It was in his tears and his smile along with his genuineness that my eyes were opened
He challenged his students to attempt to make a difference for the future of our earth which he adored
As he taught the requirements of the course he made sure to make us aware of what was going on all around us
He is retiring and moving away, to sail on high seas
He challenged his students to attempt to make a difference for the future of our earth which he adored
People do not realize that there is so much more to a person than what they look like or what the world says they are
He is retiring and moving away, to sail on high seas
I did not believe that genuine, honest, peaceful people existed
People do not realize that there is so much more to a person than what they look like or what the world says they are
I found that there are genuine, honest, peaceful people
I did not believe that genuine, honest, peaceful people existed
Life is so important to him and through him sharing his wisdom my life has been touched
I found that there are genuine, honest, peaceful people
He is the most genuine honest person I know and he only desires the best for humanity and our world
Life is so important to him and through him sharing his wisdom my life has been touched
He will be remembered, he will be missed, I will never forget him
He is the most genuine honest person I know and he only desires the best for humanity and our world
I have learned all the requirements of this course and have been given a hope that people will see others for who they are and not what they look like
