Uneducated Nation


You're sitting in your office from 9 to 5
You've never felt so un-alive
Depressed and sad in your car
Happiness have never felt so far

You thought school would make you smart
but all they did was tear you apart
Forced you to follow the stupid rules
made all the kids brainwashed fools

It's an uneducated nation
built on lies and threats
school's not an education
it fills me with regrets

they say success is getting rich
But I want to make a switch
I only wanna follow my dreams
but I'm blocked by teacher-teams

They force me to learn what I don't need
history's not what what I wanna read
"I'm an adult and you're just a kid"
"What you want is all forbid"

It's an uneducated nation
built on lies and threats
school's not an education
it fills me with regrets

Hello, I am the creator of this poem.
It is nice to see that people are enjoying these words.
I would like to make a small comment about it: This poem focuses entirely on the negatives of what you may have seen in your life. Therefore I recommend reading it, then casting it aside from your mind afterward, because it's not good to keep those emotions in yourself for long periods of time.
Thank you.
And for those wishing to play music out of this, if you are even checking this page, go ahead. I will not be using it for my own music or anything else, so use it if you would like.
I don't visit this website anymore, but I wish good luck to everyone who visits here who might be struggling. Never allow them to own the freedom or the will of your soul.

Didn't notice the errors, I think "forbidden" is what I was looking for, but that didn't fit so my brain just went for "forbid" ;)
