Education is the Key

Education is the Key

…to the upliftment of people
From the clutches of poverty;
Lost generations,
Unable to find work,
How many lives have been wasted?
How many brains are asleep?
Having no chance
To better themselves,
Acquire skills,
To learn the very basics
Of Reading, Writing and Math,
These poorest of the poor,
Together with their offspring
Will remain underprivileged
With no ladder to assist them
To climb out of the black hole of poverty.
Hopeless, helpless,
