Grad Poem – Christopher Coles

I’ve been told education is the key
I  went to school and was told to sit down shut up and read
READ READ READ
Memorize this by the end of the week
No it doesn’t matter if you forget after the test
Just sit down and be like the rest
We have students who don’t care if they learn what they read
When you strive to learn in another way
Your beaten down and told your “special”
You’re put in shackles with the key tossed away
And told EDUCATION IS THE KEY
I bond with nature while they read your twitter
I learn from my elders while they learn from wiki
I survive in this world of cruelty with eyes wide open
While they walk blindly into the future of uncertainty
But there is a  few of us
That need to feed
On education that makes us free
Lets be free of starvation
Be free of the Ignorance that surrounds us
Break the illusion
And really read
Without being told education is the key
