Educate or Eradicate

Photo by Julia M Cameron on

A child’s education turns out to be cruel
If they learn only of sex education and not life coping rules
And ultimately, my angel, it’s the children that will pay
Because nine months later, a new life is on it’s way

Education can be a gift and some of it will have great purpose
But it’s useless when they have to figure out how to hire a wet nurse
Help children know more, show them how much more they can dream
Of a much greater future, let them know what that means

Demand now that high schools implement more life strategies
Children can’t learn something different if it’s only the diapers they’ll see
Children won’t get to have a mind, until they are taught how it can expand
If you don’t know, then learn together, think twice and take command

Change the patterns that keep on growing in each generation
The technology we have today can help us unite our nation
Children don’t need to walk the roads, that you all walked down before
They are autonomous, give them back their mind and you’ll see so much more

It is up to you, my angel if you let society make you cower
Get control of your mind right now, because a child is like a flower
They will grow if you give them love, knowledge and if they cannot feel the sun
They will wither and die in the darkness, paying for your mistakes alone
