Education


My schooling was over as I was told
Now it was time for me of a dream to take hold
So I closed all of my books I finished all my classes
I put away my pencils and pens and cleaned off my glasses
I would use my education to serve me best
It was time for the young to earn and the weary to rest
I took my education with my diploma in hand
One day in this world I will be remembered by this stand
But until that day a job I must find
That would utilize my education and also my mind
No longer a philosopher or a poet would I be
I must pull my own weight according to my degree
Unto this world I must make a mark
As into the world of reality I would embark
Since my learning and education is all complete
It is time for me now to stand on my own two feet.
