"The best way to teach morality is to make it a habit with children." - Aristotle

School Frustrations

by


Schools don't educate
they teach us to fear
and surrender to fate

Schools make learning dull
memorizing details is simply no fun

Of course it's all indirect
it's hidden so well that
no-one would suspect
that it's here and it's there
look around, it's not fair

You turn to the class
and ask a question

I would gladly reply
if I were so inclined

But something else is on my mind
learning of a different kind

The things that mean the most to me
are good and pure and true and free

I speak with a friend
and I'm punished for that
when I try to defend
I'm thrown out for backchat

Respect is something
that you have to earn
but you yell, demand
and give none in return

School has taken away my imagination,
A prison for the young where our lives remain station.
Sitting in a classroom our minds become numb
Where we remain trapped by authorities thumb.

School for me is a living hell
A place where I am forced to rebel,
And stand up for what I believe
Even though I am not sure what I hope to achieve.

As I sit their half asleep,
Stirring at the other sheep
I am embalmed in this clouded atmosphere
Sat next to a person who has been deemed my peer.

I’m supposed to continue on if I want to succeed
And memorise what they want me to read.
After all that is how you get a good job
So for now I am forced to sob

I have always gotten mediocre grades
I watch as my potential fades
Should I continue this route?
Or should I just drop out.

If I do I shall continue with my education
Through text, experience and observation
Many will say you’re just a drop out and lazy
But I have to do this before I go crazy.

sometime this year i was thinking about going one step further with hating school. Like c`mon we not only hate being there we despise every second spent in that life wasting place. So me and a couple of friends thought: "How about a revolution: we deny going there and instead we march with classmates friends, schoolmates heck even family if they support us demanding a better education and thus one day this will be the foundation of a better world where intellectual growth is of more value that what useless work we can churn out for the benefit of our o so dear and corrupt governments" -Remember knowledge is power. Power corrupts. We children can balance it out
