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.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
