Knowledge Is Power


Education can open the doors to a new future
Why do you not want to learn?
It’s satisfactory to be smart and intelligent
You don’t have to look to others for things
Strive on your own
Use your skills and knowledge to succeed

Forget about drugs
Forget about gangs
Forget about being cool
Forget about haters
Forget about being accepted
Forget about how you are perceived

Stay in school until you have achieved your goals
There’s nothing better than having a mind full of knowledge
With knowledge you can change the world
With knowledge you can lead the world

Lead instead of follow
Open up a book
And learn something new
You’d be amazed
At what you can do

Raise your hand in class
And answer the question
Don’t be shy

Rise
And show the world what you can do
