The best ones can’t be hired

The best ones can’t be hired

They can only be loaned.

If you are lucky, they stay for a chapter.

But what a chapter.

Don’t be sad when they leave.

Be happy they came to learn.

They could have gone anywhere.

But they chose you.

Be grateful they burned so bright while they were with you.

It’s better to be a launchpad than a retirement home.
