TEACHER – 沈浩波 Shen Haobo

Shen Haobo
TEACHER

People often tell me
I look just like him
When I open my mouth,
my tone and my mien make me even more similar.
He was a teacher at my university,
but I was not in his class.
If I had been his student,
would I be his perfect spitting image?
But how could I think
I could be like him?
He used his own life
to teach me
a moral lesson.
If he had not used his own life
for this lesson,
no-one would have believed him.

老师 | 沈浩波

经常听人说
我和他长得像
一听我开口说话
口气和神态就更像了
他是我母校的老师
但我没当过他的学生
如果我当过他的学生
会不会和他更像?
但我怎么配
和他更像呢?
他用生命
给我上了一堂
道德课
这种课
不用命来上
就不会有人信
