We need to invest in our future
We need to take care of our youth
We need to foster their minds, mentally feed our youth
We have to complete our youth because we need our youth
We need to give them the ability to ponder
We need to meditate our youth
We need to stop setting limits
We constantly relegate our youth
Killing them with words
We’re so persistent, we always denigrate our youth
We speak of equal opportunity
So, why is it so hard to educate our youth?
Why is it that a poor family has to go broke just to get their kids through private school?
They can’t be promised that they’ll be better off just because they have better networking tools
Yet they’ll get lost in the sauce if they find themselves in a public school
Education is out there
Information is surplus
Yet people are constantly spoon fed bullshit news from tabloids
As if learning about the world and policy can hurt us
The system decided that an education is what’s needed for our youth
Which means that this education is paramount for our youth
So why is it that it seems like people have to move mountains for our youth
You can’t expect these inner-city kids to go anywhere with school when money runs the world and is seen as the ultimate tool
If money is the objective, why sit in a classroom when you can “make bread” selling drugs to your fellow youth
They don’t understand that time is money and that money is time, making it easy for them to be forgotten and just regarded as “those youth”
Education is life for our youth
It helps determine wrong from right for our youth
But there seems to be an educational blight before our youth
It seems as if this proclaimed “human right” for our youth
Is nothing more than a forbidden fruit for our youth.
