A Poem by Adrienne

by Adrienne

this place is a prison with invisable bars
the door shut tight and the doors locked closed.
the darkness fills this place with emptiness
and no light can be found at the end of the tunnel.

in this place there are no opinions except the one
if you disobey you dissapeer for a day .
This place fills my head with lies daily.
the half of it junk; useless info never to assist me.

In my bar-less jail cell I have inmates.
Most of them bullies who always win.
Lives built around the lies forced upon us,
brainwashed humans turned into robots.

In my place you are not aloud to leave
You must sit there and remain in your cell
Calm as if nothing wrong is going on
calm as if you arnt being driven insane

Told what to do, what to learn and what to think
They tell you what to wear and what is wrong
They tell you that they are right, without sharing their proof
In a place without snse, only contridictions I am dying.

In a place without trust the silence runs low
but the noise even lower
no one stand up for the prisoners
when will the tryanny end?

When will the thinkers crack?
tommarow today or yesterday
When will all this make sense
and when will the mighty fall?

I thought this was a really good essay. I do agree, however, that school does teach some necessary things, such as proper grammar, some math and science skills, etc. I do like your insight on how school sometimes prevents thinking abstractly - the they tell us what's what part. Overall, I like it even if I disagree with some things. :)

this poem is not anti-eduction. it's anti-school. maybe you should read about the point of the site before commenting.
